Welcome to the Year 4 home page!
Our class teachers are Mrs Connor, Mr Yorke and Mrs Carney.
Long Term Overview
Children will receive a reading book, that will be changed as they become confident in reading it and complete an Accelerated Reader quiz. The quiz allows the child to showcase their knowledge of the book and ensures they have retained the required learning, before moving to another book. We will hear the children read throughout the week on a one-to-one basis. Children will also read to adults during other activities, such as Guided Reading. The reading books that are sent home should be practised regularly at home so that the children become fluent and confident, when reading.
In Year 4, children will receive spelling and timetables homework weekly, alongside their reading books. This is to enhance their learning in reading/maths – the children will be taught sounds and words throughout the week.
Year 4 children will be completing all PE lessons on a Monday and Wednesday. The required uniform for PE is shorts/ tracksuit trousers and a t-shirt.
Within Year 4, Class Dojo is used to reward children where they can collect Dojo points. It should also be used to communicate with the teacher about your child.

Learning This Term
This term, the children have greatly enjoyed having visitors, showing them archery skills using a bow and arrow. They were very enthusiastic. By the end of the session, many children were confident holding and using a bow and were hitting the bull’s eye to score points! The children have also enjoyed having visitors coming to school to do Science investigations with them. One experiment they really enjoyed was a visitor who showed them how to make colourful candles. They learnt about how wax can melt but can then become a solid. During the session they made their own multi-coloured candles which they took home.The children in Y4 enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book-related character and sharing their favourite reading book with Mrs Carney and I. They looked really impressive in their outfits.
