Year 4 Badgers

Welcome back, I hope you have had a lovely Half term break and also enjoyed spending time with your families for Eid. Your work will be added every day again for you to complete at home.  I have added the knowledge organisers and bulletin at the bottom of the page, which will help you with the learning for this half term.


If you need to contact me, please use the contact form at the bottom.  However, I won't be able to reply to any messages sent from school email accounts e.g. a big brother/sister's school email address.  I can only reply to a parent's email address.

Join our summer reading challenge!


From the 5th of June we are encouraging our wonderful SMSJ children to complete the summer reading challenge with Blackburn Central Library!

This is a fantastic opportunity to encourage thousands of children to read for pleasure and keep their skills sharp whilst learning from home.


All you need to do is follow the link below and sign up! The library has recently relaxed the joining rules, so that children who don’t already have a library card can access the eBook and eAudio resources too!


Once you are all signed up, set your own challenge to read any number of books! Every time you finish a book, add it to your profile and write a review.

You will be rewarded with activities and incentives along the way, such as online badges, games and videos!


When your challenge is completed you will receive a downloadable certificate!


We can’t wait to see what you have been reading!

Important Reminders

* PE - Our PE day is Monday, however, it is important that PE kits are in school at all times.

* School Library - The Badgers are timetabled to visit the school library every Tuesday lunchtime.  Don't forget to pick up a loyalty card for the chance to win a new book from the SMSJ bookshop!
