St Nicholas CE Primary School

Year 4/5: Willow Tree

Welcome back to another academic year here at St Nicholas!


This year, our Year 4 and 5 team will be called the Willow Class. We have a brilliant team of 29 children, and Mr Starkey will be the class teacher. We also have Mrs Mason, who is a student teacher, working with the group throughout the year as well as Miss Harper - awesome!


Throughout the first half term, we will focus our maths work on number skills, delving into the place value of numbers up to and including ten thousands! Further, we will be developing our calculation of numbers. In literacy, we will be writing diary entries and a very exciting setting description. These will be based on our class reader book: Oliver Twist!


During the afternoon sessions, we will be working on a history topic all about WW2, some computing, PSHE, French, science AND PE! The curriculum is so exciting to start the year off!


Below are some screenshots for you to look over, but first I will highlight any other key information that you may find useful.


  • PE kits are to be worn to school on Wednesday and Thursday. (Please bring normal school shoes for inside, and trainers for outside on these days.)
  • Please bring an outdoor set of shoes and an indoor set of shoes each day. (You can leave the outdoor set in school if you wish.)
  • Learning journals will be looked at with the children every two weeks.
  • Reading journals will be looked at with the children on a weekly basis. (The children will be responsible for moving their 'Reading Hero' books.)


Many thanks for your continued support, and if you have any questions please get in touch.




Mr Starkey
