Things to remember...

Could all children please have a water bottle with their name on it to ensure they are hydrated all day.

PE kit should be kept in school at all times. Can children make sure they are not wearing jewellery or earrings on PE days and their hair needs to be tied up. Their PE days are currently Thursday and Friday.

Reading: We expect children to be reading at home five times a week. All children have specific reading books and diaries.

Homework: This will be given every Friday and is expected to be returned on Tuesday. Children can choose from the sheet here.



Today some of the Year 4 children completed their Level 1 Bikeability. They worked hard, listened carefully to the instructor and did fantastically. Well done!

Times Tables

In November, fifteen year 4 pupils took part in the first round of Stoke-on-Trent’s Times Table Rock Stars Competition. We had a great afternoon at Thistley Hough High School, and three pupils qualified for the final on 29th January at Port Vale Football club.

We took a group of supporters to the final, who also took part in times table tasks and supported our finalists Muhab, Emmanuel and Reshika.

Our three finalists along with 22 other year 4 pupils, took part in a range of activities, and received goodie bags and certificates. Emmanuel and Reshika both qualified in the top 10. It was tense waiting to find out who was the overall winner.

When the winner was called it was Reshika, who had won ‘The Stoke-on-Trent Times Table Champion 2020’, and received her trophy from Mrs Bedford. Well done Reshika!

Well done to all the pupils who represented Stoke Minster CE Primary Academy.


Wow! What an incredible few days the Year 4's had at Stanley Head. It was an action-packed few days. The children developed their communication skills through team building games, faced their fears when they went climbing and crate stacking and made lasting memories when we sang and had a hot chocolate around the campfire. I know that all the children (and staff) really enjoyed the experience and that they are already looking forward to going again in Year 6!
