Year 4

Welcome to Year 4.

This year we will be continuing our journey through Key Stage 2 and developing ourselves as learners. We will build on the independence developed in Year 3 along with perseverance as we challenge ourselves to be the best we can.

Our topics include the Romans, World Kitchen, Our Green Planet, Reign over us and Britain from the Air. These topics provide a platform for us to link children’s learning in History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology and Science when able. Children will have the opportunity to share learning about these topics at home through topic homework. Children are given homework which relates to their Topic or Science each half term. This will then be bought in at the end of each half term and the children will be given chance to share these with their class.

Homework also consists of spellings, which are given out weekly, times tables ready for our weekly 99 club challenge and reading. Our expectation is that all children read to an adult at least 3 times a week, which should be recorded in their reading diary.

We also have a Year 4 Book Award. The aim of this is to engage the children in reading, whilst having the opportunity to experience a range of genres and authors. Each child will receive an award for reaching Bronze, Silver and Gold. Parents are welcome to join in too, you don’t know what you're missing!

The Year 4 team consists of Mrs Joyce, Mrs Ince, Miss O'Brien, Miss Depper and Miss Perrin. Please see our latest year group newsletter here.

Please be reassured that you are welcome to contact us should you have any queries or concerns or even share exciting news and achievements of your child.

We have so much fun in Year 4!
