Welcome to Year Four!
In Year Four there are two classes: 4AL and 4SW.

New Year Four classrooms are under construction but our temporary homes are currently located at the front and rear of the junior hall. Both classes are accessed before and after school from the middle entrance on the junior playground .
Children need to have a P.E. kit in school which consists of a white or blue T-shirt, shorts and school pumps, plus joggers and trainers for outside. For swimming on Thursday afternoons, children must bring swimwear and towel in an appropriate bag.
A pair of Wellington boots should also be brought into school for Outdoor Education which is on Mondays.
Pumps are needed for climbing wall activities on Tuesdays in November and December.
Children need reading books and reading records in school every day. Reading books should be brought in school book bags and will be stored in classroom trays.
What we do:
Everyday the children take part in fun and exciting activities to promote their learning. We undertake daily SPaG, Literacy and Maths lessons. We also underpin our learning with ICT through using iPads in class. Once a fortnight we work with Mr Bean for an Outdoor Learning activity (Monday afternoons) and we promote physical activity through formal P.E. lessons and making other lessons as active as possible!
We adopt a thematic approach to our learning and endeavour to link as many lessons as possible to our topic.
Children are expected to read daily and we encourage comments (yours and theirs) to be made in reading journals. Reading really is integral to your child's learning so please do read at home. Please complete the reading activities listed at the front of the reading journal.
Spellings are set for the half term and are tested weekly on a Friday. Please encourage your child to practise every day. There will be a short spelling task each week for children to complete using their groups' spellings.
Homework will be set on a Friday and children are expected to return their books on the following Wednesday.
Topic homework is set once per term and will vary depending on the topic.
Our Autumn Term topic is ' Bright Sparks' and will cover historical inventions and electricity in Science.
In our Literacy lessons, we will discover how everyday household objects really work in our imaginative, explanation text 'Until I met Dudley'.
In PE, we will be developing our football skills with Sports Coaching North West. In addition to this, Year 4 will have weekly swimming lessons during the Autumn Term. Full details regarding swimming lessons will be sent to all parents.
