Background Slideshow


Welcome Message

Please take time to look around the school’s website for key information. Also, make sure that you visit this page as often as possible as it is here that you will be able to view what your child is doing in school each week and every term via the Class Blog that appears below.

In the links above you will find information all about what we will be learning in Year 4!


Below, you will find information about your child’s PE time slot and information about reading at home!

At the bottom of the page is a weekly update of what the children have been learning about.



Year 4 will have PE weekly and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE kit in school every day. It is also important that each item of PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name in case things get lost. 4BV have PE on a Wednesday.


Reading at Home

Reading at home is essential for your child to make the progress necessary with their school work. Your child will have a Reading Record Book that they bring home each night. If they read to you or another adult, or to themselves, please sign the Record Book to say this has happened. They will then get credits at school towards a range of reading certificates that they will receive in a class assembly.

Class Blogs

Please read our weekly class blogs below.


“We have been looking at the attack on Lindisfarne. We pretended that we were Monks who had survived the attack.” FF

“I enjoyed writing the diary entry! It was interesting!” VB

“I made sure that I had written in first person and past tense so that the reader knew it had already happened to me” DS



“We used clocks to tell the time. It was quite tricky!” ACK

“I can find minutes past the hour!” LF



“We made another circuit using a range of conductors and insulators!” RK

“We found that pencils, rulers and rubbers were insulators because they stopped the flow of electricity!” NE

“A metal sharpener was a conductor! Also, a paper clip and a coin because they let the electricity flow through!” IC


Have a great weekend.
