Year 4

Quality and Respect

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: Vikings, Anglo Saxons, France, Europe, Roman Empire, Cultural Birmingham and North and South America.

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:

  • Mrs Roberts
  • Mr Severn
  • Miss Shezedi

Supported by teaching assistants:

  • Mrs Scott
  • Miss Spencer
  • 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.

PE: Children take part in PE lessons each week. One lesson is indoors and one outdoors.
