Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

This year, in Year 4 the class teachers are Mrs Holding (4 Wiltshire), Mrs Watson (4 Milhazes) and Mrs Reece and Mrs H Douglas (4 Fraser).  Miss O'Neill, Mrs Cressey, Mrs Parker, Miss Curtis and Miss Peal, who are our teaching assistants, will be working alongside. 

We are looking forward to the year ahead with a very exciting curriculum and some fantastic trips planned! We are loving Ancient Egypt already and are looking forward to using this platform to share our learning with you.

You will find our curriculum information further down the page!

We had such an amazing time at Frontier Centre!

What a week!

We've had a very busy week.

We have been enjoying our new English unit and are learning a time slip story.

In Maths we are busy consolidating our learning of decimals.

We have all enjoyed Art - where we have been experimenting with oil pastels.

We also had a zoom call from Mr Pendergast, the bass player for Harry Styles! - who taught us that if we work hard and are passionate about our goals we can succeed at anything!

Year 4 Science-Investigating what plants need to grow well.

Year 4 are investigating how air, water, space, soil and temperature affect plant growth. We are observing our plants weekly.

Supporting your child with reading

We understand that when children get to Key Stage 2, many parents feel unsure about how to support them with their reading.

Attached to this post are some questions which you could ask your child when reading with them, which tackle the key areas of reading comprehension.

A video explaining this in more detail will be released to parents shortly via parentmail.
