Welcome Letter 2020_21 1

Welcome to Year 4!

Welcome to Ostrich Class! We are a class of Year 4 children. Mr Maslin is our Teacher and our LSAs are Mrs Schwanke and Mrs Balch. Come have a look at our page for reading updates, activities and to catch up on what we do!

Monday 8th June update


Hello everyone! I hope you all had a nice half term and had lots of adventures. Here is a shoutout to Jake, Lexi M and George who still went on TTRS and did some Soundcheck last week, well done!

I'm also really proud of our scores as a class, so many more of us are regularly getting more than 20 questions right every soundcheck!

Today we went out to the firepit and recreated bonfire night with our Guy Fawkes figures and toasted marshmallows, before drawing some posters for fire safety. What have you all been doing at home?


Speak soon and stay safe,


Mr Maslin


P.S Do your best to keep doing at least a lesson a day o either the BBC Bitesize or Oak National websites!


Mr Maslin's Birthday Update!


Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying the sunshine and working hard. I'm planning to spend my birthday eating lots of cake and drinking as much apple juice as possible! 


I've just checked TTRS and shoutout to Tyler, George, Kristiyan, Abigail, Lexi M, Isha, Jake and Joseph for practising this last week. Special mention to Isha, Jake and Joseph who have hugely improved their soundcheck scores recently. Keep it up!


Have an awesome day and thank you for all the cards I got!

Notice from Miss Howell:

We hope that you are all keeping safe and well - we are missing you all lots!  We have opened up an art competition for all children from Wellington!!! Whether you are attending school or working hard from home; we would love to see lots of entries.  Take a look at the competition entry poster to find out all about it! If you are choosing to enter from home, when your entry is finished please take a photo of it and email it through to  Don't forget to include your full name and class on your entry!  Good luck and we look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations!   

Make sure you check down the page, the updates might not always appear at the top! Have you noticed the daily update of lessons from the national academy below?

Daily Lesson Updates


For daily lessons there are lots of options for you!


The best would be

where lessons are being uploaded every day! Please visit this and record your work in your home learning books!


You can also look into the additional resources pages at the top for plenty of work packs that you can explore.

Finally, keep an eye out for updates with "Reading with Mr Maslin" and videos I might post (shoutouts to those practicing on Times Tables Rock Stars)!


My other favourite is from the oak national academy. They have some cracking daily lessons that a lot of students are already accessing, well done!


With these above that will be plenty for you to be getting on with, and if you want to show off your work make sure to post it to the Wellington PTA Facebook page!


Stay safe and learn fun things,


Mr Maslin
