Blue Class 2023 - 2024

Mrs Somers




A warm welcome to Blue Class!


I am hoping you all had a summer of fun and rest, and the children are excited to hear about the Year 4 adventures which await our new Blue crew! We’re looking forward to seeing you everybody again, and I’m certainly relying on the children to help me out when I get lost (which will happen I’m sure)! I’m really looking forward to being a part of the Peartree family and making our children’s learning as memorable and meaningful as possible.

Our Team

We are fortunate to have a brilliantly creative and complementary staff team in Blue this year. Children will be supported by our wonderful Mrs Cliff, Mrs Logan and Mrs Costa. Children will be taught by Mrs Degg during Wednesday afternoons as well.


PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday this half term. Please ensure correct PE kit is worn on these days.

Forest school sessions won’t be until the Spring Term.


Homework has slightly changed. Daily reading and practising times tables on the Timestable Rock star app at home as regularly as possible is what we now ask.  We are aware weeknights can be busy, but daily reading at home to an adult for just 5-10 minutes hugely impacts the children’s confidence and progress, so we will check reading diaries each day. Of course, we will also ensure our class reading library is full of stimulating enticing and level appropriate texts for children to choose their book from. Children will be encouraged to access Timetable Rockstars in place of their usual homework task and can be accessed on Childrens log in details will be available in their reading diaries. We would encourage 15-20 minutes of use across the week, as best it fits.

This terms learning

We kick start our year off with a history-based topic on Ancient Civilizations with the Ancient Egyptians being our main focus of exploration. Our infamous Ancient Egyptian Day is sure to be a highlight after half term. In the meantime, we will be immersing ourselves into one of our core texts “The Firework Makers Daughter” before delving into the depths of the desert with our Egyptian based stories.

Our Science learning focuses on our biology led units of Animals including Humans. This half term we look at teeth and our body’s incredible digestive system….it’s sure to get yucky!

Further detailed coverage of our learning for this term and across the rest of the year will soon be available in the useful documents section where you can find our Long-term plan and Medium-term plans as well as the general class timetable.


A member of Blue class team will always be at the gate each morning and end of day for any messages which need to be passed on to me. As always, reading diaries are also a reliable way of leaving any messages (regarding a change of plans for pick up etc). Teaching commitments of the day often mean emails can’t be responded to by myself immediately, but I will endeavour to reply within 48 hours. Of course for or any urgent concerns, please ring the school office. My contactable email is

Each Friday I will send an update email regarding our highlights of the week, and what we have coming up the following week. Due to the nature of a dynamic and responsive teaching approach, our plans can and often will change, from our Medium Term Plans!

Any questions please ask – I may not know an immediate answer but will always seek to find an answer for you.
