Year 4

Hello and welcome to our new Year 4 classes!


In Year 4 we have Maple class with Mr Parker, who is helped by Mrs Jenner. We also have Willow Class with Mrs Perks who is helped by Mrs Hollingsworth and Mr Wellstead.


Our painting for this term is 'The 7th Plague' by John Martin, and our topic will be Ancient Egypt.

At this time of year, year 4 children will be working on place value of 4 digit numbers in Maths. We will also be extending our writing by using a variety of subordinating conjunctions and interesting adjectives.


Another big focus this term will be spelling and times tables.


P.E. is on Wednesdays and Fridays for Willow Class and Thursdays and Fridays for Maple Class.


Clarinet lessons will be on Tuesdays.

Here are some of the ways you can help your child at home:


  • Reading with your child everyday and ensuring their reading diary is signed

  • Ensuring homework is completed and handed in on time

  • Helping your child practice their times tables with the child reciting "1 times 8 is 8"

  • Practicing spellings weekly


If you have any questions please speak to Mrs Perks or Mr Parker on the playground at the end of the day, or get in touch with the school office to arrange an appointment.


We are so excited for our first term with our new classes!
