Background Slideshow


Welcome To Our Class Page

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.


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.

We have had a fantastic week!


RR – In English we have been reading Alice in Wonderland. Today, we planned our own story based on Alice in Wonderland.

MS – In Science we have been learning about vertebrates and invertebrates. We have been organising them into different groups!

JN – In Maths we have been multiplying 3-digit numbers together using the column method.

SR – In Geography we have been learning about the sea turtles and how conservationists work to keep them safe by putting signs where they are nesting. Did you know that only 1 in 1000 turtles will survive and make it to adulthood?

AH – In art we made a 3D rollercoaster using paper sculpture techniques.

AS – In RE we have been learning about the Christmas story. We retold it and wrote about the most significant parts.

PS – In DT we made our own magic kingdom castles using recycled materials like boxes! We worked together in one big team.
