Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!


The year 4 team for 2023/24 consists of Mrs Johnson (4I) and Mr Chadaway (4J) and our teaching assistants are Mrs Holder and Mrs Short. 


Year 4 PE days are Tuesday and Friday.  Please familiarise yourself with our uniform policy in relation to PE, including health and safety requirements linked to jewellery.


Please ensure that your child brings in a water bottle their reading book/record and their link book, every day.  Homework is set on a Friday, and is due in the following Thursday, their new spellings will be written at the front of their link book weekly.  Children should be reading to an adult at least three times per week for at least 15/20 minutes each time.  This must be recorded in your child's reading record.


Could we please ask that any belongings are labelled - it makes it easier to return when they are left around school!

Autumn 1

This half term, the children will be exploring Ancient Rome.  They will investigate how the Romans successfully (and finally) invaded Britain and the importance of Boudicca.  While looking at what the Roman Empire achieved, they will be looking at what impact they had on Britain including the roads and what they taught the Britons.  The children will also be reading The Watertower by Gary Crew and extracts of Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens comparing Victorian Britain to Britain of today.

To support our pupils with their spelling abilities, all children have been given login information for EdShed.  Online books (with a range of opportunities to develop reading and inference skills) can be accessed through Bug Club (also used in KS1).  Both links are included below for your convenience.

Settling into year 4 (September 2023)


We have been incredibly proud of the way that the new year 4 children have settled into school life once again.  The children have enjoyed kickstarting their new topics, meeting the staff members they will be working with, and spending time with their friends following their long summer break.  All adults working with year 4 have commented on the excellent learning attitudes and behaviours that have been displayed so far. 


Keep up the hard work, year 4!
