Welcome to the class page for 4HN. 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.
Below you will also find important information about your child’s PE slot as well as advice about reading at home.
Year 4 will have PE weekly and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE in school everyday. 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 assembly.

In English this week, we have been busy planning and reporting the news about the death of Beowulf, King of the Geats, who fought a valiant effort against the Death Dragon.
“In the introduction, we had to remember to answer when, where, who and what?” (VB)
“We have had to remember to write formality, so we haven’t been able to contract words, unless uses quotations.” (BS)
In Maths, we have been working on our use of formal methods for multiplication and have applied this to solving multi-step word problems.
“We had to multiply 2,3 or 4 digit numbers by 1 digit, applying our knowledge of times tables.” (PB)
“We had to make sure we read the questions carefully, so that we answered every step correctly.” (CS)
Our Science lessons this week, have been focused on developing our knowledge further on the human digestive system.
“We have begun to write an explanation text, applying our English skills to write for purpose,” (GMW/ CW)
We have written an explanation text in History, to explain the workings of a Viking long boat.
