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.


Potato Print Publishing Books


We were thrilled to take part in Potato Print Publishing's flagship project, working with schools to help all children become published authors! We had great fun creating our books; we discussed characters, themes, settings, plot twists and more! We have enjoyed sharing our books in-class and now, they are available to buy! You can purchase either a digital or printed copy of the book. Our book is available on the following link:


Here is a preview of the book our class made:

4P Class Blog- Thursday 2nd February 2023

We have had a brilliant week in 4P!

“In English, we have been writing a formal letter as Beowulf to Lord Hygelac to explain to him why we should battle Grendel!” ER

“I explained that Grendel was a ferocious beast that needed to be stopped!” RS

“We had to make sure that we included a variety of formal sentence starters in our work!” YG

“In Maths, we have started to look at fractions!” SS

“We have identified that for a fraction to represent more than one, the numerator needs to be greater than the denominator!” EK

“If the numerator and denominator are the same, we know it represents a whole!” ST


“In PSHE, we talked about how resilience and a positive attitude can contribute to us achieving our dreams and goals!” JG


“In History, we have been looking at the positive and negative effects of when Britain converted to Christianity!” NK


“In Science, we have started to look at food pyramids and what primary and secondary consumers are!” AG
