Wilstead Primary School Learning for Life


Year 4 (Tigers)

Hi parents and carers, 


Here is a copy of the presentation I did for the teacher meet and greet. I hope it all makes sense, but if not then please come and talk to me. New spellings are going out today, any problems again let me know. 

I have enquired about a residential trip for our year 4s which will be in Summer term. I will get all the information together (cost, dates, etc) and then send a letter out. It is a long way off but the sooner details and prices are known the better I think. 

I also wanted to say that every child has come back to school with a fantastic attitude and have made this first week brilliant to teach. I'm excited about the year ahead, and what good work we will do and fun we will have. 

Sports Day

We all had a fantastic time engaging in our Sports Day activities!

Many thanks to Asan Tu for the wonderful photography.

Ran out of reading books?

You can find a HUGE range of reading books for children aged 3-11 on this website - many the same as we use at school. These are staged to make it easier to choose the correct level, and all are free. All you have to do is set up a parent log in and browse away! 


Bedford libraries are also giving access to a range of online books and audios books through their website.  If you have a library card you are able to use this to access them or you can make an account online.  See -

Quizzing from home guidance for parents

We don’t usually encourage quizzing at home as it can affect test validity, which can result in inconsistent or unrepresentative reading ages. However, due to these exceptional circumstances, you may wish to consider allowing students to quiz at home for a limited period.


This link will take you to our AR portal (which is the same as we use at school):


Ensure that the books you read are:

  • AR quizzed – you can use the Accelerated Reader Bookfinder website to search for a book and see if a quiz is available.
  • Appropriate for the student’s level of ability – more information can be found here.
