A big well done to everyone in Year 4 regarding Buster’s Book Club. It is clearly evident that children are reading more every week.

Well done to Birch for winning the Busters Book Club trophy for the most children reading for the week.

Please remember to record your reading on your Buster’s Book Club bookmark or reading log. Failing this parents should tell the teacher verbally if their child has read and for how long.






Year 4 has made significant progress with Times Table Rock Stars and should be very happy with themselves. Well done to Birch for most improved class.

Our current leaders are Lucy (Birch) and Jaiden (Beech) with scores of 1.60 and 1.97 seconds to answer one question.


Congratulations to Chloe from Birch Class for being awarded ‘Star of the Week’ for her excellent effort towards reading.

Excellent progress with Reading Plus across Year 4 this week and over the term as a whole. Lets continue with this attitude.

Well done to Birch who are currently at the top of the leader board. This is a brilliant accomplishment.


Athletics at Marsh Academy

Year 4 participated in Sportshall Athletics at Marsh Academy today in partnership with the Kent Sports Trust.  All the children enjoyed the event and competed with great sportsmanship.

Both teams did extremely well, we were especially pleased with our A Team who received the gold medal.

Welcome to Year 4

All the children are now settling well into their 4th week of Year 4.  It’s great to see attitudes to learning are high and this is also seen with their enthusiasm to complete tasks at home.


Home learning this year will take the form of internet based activities on Reading Plus and Times Table Rockstars.  It is essential that the children complete these daily.  They are both fantastic programs which really boost reading and times table knowledge.


Please speak to your child’s teacher if you have questions about how to log in to these programs.

There are also optional mini projects for the children to complete.  Click on the link to view these.
