Year 4 - Mrs Grioli

Thank you for taking time to visit our class page. I hope you find all of the information below useful.

Who is my child’s teacher?

The Year 4 teacher is Mrs Grioli and the learning support assistants are Mrs Else, Mrs Hoyle and Mrs Hersnip.

What time does school start and finish?

School starts at 8:50am and finishes at 3:15pm. We have one morning break from 10:15-10:30 and lunch time is from 12:15-1:15pm (on Tuesday we have an earlier lunch to fit in swimming).

When is school closed for holidays?

Please visit the term dates https://www.hindley.wigan.sch.uk/Term%20Dates.html section of our school website.

What will my child be learning this year?

This year, children will become fluent in their times tables up to 12 x 12. This will be done through regular practice, fun quizzes and the ever popular songs and rhymes! Maths will also include fractions, decimals and learning to convert the time from 12 – 24 hour and back again.

In English, children will be learning more in-depth grammatical skills such as fronted adverbials, a range of coordinating and subordinating conjunctions and to write in standard English (e.g. we were on holiday).


 When does my child have PE?

Tuesday (swimming at Hindley Baths) and Friday.
On Tuesday, children should come to school in their full uniform and their swim kit including towel in a bag. Children will need to bring a waterproof coat as
On Friday, your child should come to school dressed in their PE kit and trainers. Please see the uniform page on our school website https://www.hindley.wigan.sch.uk/Uniform.html

What should my child bring to school each day?

All stationery will be provided by school. Children do not need to bring any pens or pencils into schools. Toys are not allowed to be brought into school from home.

A drinks bottle (with water already in) with their name on. If sunny, your child should come to school with sun cream already applied and a sun hat.

What homework will my child get?

Times tables and spellings will be set as homework each Monday and children will be tested on these in school each week.  

Why is reading so important?

The importance of reading for children cannot be underestimated. Reading for pleasure can benefit a child’s education, social and cognitive development, their wellbeing, and their mental health. Reading is the bedrock of all learning.

Our class author in Year 4 is J.K. Rowling. We will read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and children will have the opportunity to read her other books throughout the year.

For more information about reading, please visit our reading page on the school website https://www.hindley.wigan.sch.uk/reading.html
We expect that all children are reading at least 5 times each week to an adult or older sibling and that this reading is logged in your child’s planner.

How will I receive updates and messages from school?

Staff are always available at the end of the day to answer any quick questions or queries. Class Dojo is used as the main line of communication throughout school, so please make sure that all parents/carers have a class dojo account set up and regularly check messages and updates.  You can send direct messages to your child’s teacher, but please be mindful that staff are teaching, so they will not always be able to message back immediately.
