Respect and Determination
In Year 4 we aim to provide interesting, engaging and challenging opportunities in which the children can learn. This is done through a range of exciting creative curriculum topics.
Our topics for this year are: Stone Age, The Physical World, Ancient Egypt, The Human World, Geography Skills and Anglo Saxons.
Weekly Music lessons, in which the children learn to play an instrument, enhance the creative elements of the curriculum provision.
We understand the importance of a learning environment in which all pupils can be successful. Our creative curriculum provision aims to ensure that all pupils are given the opportunity to achieve their potential.
During this year your child will be taught by class teachers:
- Miss Ajaz
- Miss O’Connell
- Mrs Roberts
Supported by teaching assistants:
- Mrs Scott
- Mrs Clipstone
Homework: At the beginning of each new half term families are sent a ‘preview’ sheet which outlines the planned learning. Children are invited to carry out their own research, or respond creatively with writing of stories, poems, producing drawings, paintings, models or indeed anything about their learning which has captured their interest. We particularly value this ‘children led’ work from home. We also provide children and parents a range of activities to support the learning at home.
Children are expected to read each day, practise spellings weekly and learn times tables. Weekly maths homework will be set online by teachers on Mathletics. Children will also be given a spelling list each week to learn at home.
PE: Children take part in PE lessons every Monday.

We had a visitor from The Old Rep Theatre to work with us, ahead of our visit to see Pinocchio in theatre.
We have been programming in our Computing lessons, where we designed our own educational game.
During science lessons we were making poo as we learnt about the digestive system. The children loved this topic!.
We have started ‘Peer Reading’ every Thursday afternoon where the children are paired up to read aloud to each other and support each other’s learning.
We have been thoroughly enjoying our instrument lessons every Tuesday.
We have had numerous new ‘Pen Licence’ holders as children are taking pride in their presentation and using cursive continuous joins in their writing.
