Year 4

Happiness and Unity

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 Johnson
  • Miss Mitha
  • Mr Bailey

Supported by teaching assistants:

  • Miss Ali
  • Mrs Scott
  • Mrs Clipstone
  • Ms Edinborough

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.

Children are expected to read each day, practise spellings weekly and learn times tables. This is especially important this year as children will be taking new government times tables tests before they leave Year 4. In Year 4, we use ‘Time Tables Rock Stars’ to support our pupils learning. Children will be given a log in for this so that they can practice at home. Children will also be given a spelling list each week to learn at home.

PE: Children take part in PE lessons weekly. Please see your child’s Class DoJo updates for your child’s PE day.


Timetables for Year 4 classes:


We have been learning about the Stone Age and have created fact files about what we have learnt in our Computing lessons.
In Design and Technology, we had lots of fun creating our own models of Stonehenge!

We have been getting crafty in geography, creating dioramas to reflect the biomes of the Indian Savannah, Spanish Chaparral and Australian desert...
...Can you work out which is which?
