Mrs Dark and Mrs Whittaker would like to welcome you to the Year 4 webpage. We hope to share with you curriculum coverage and ideas, as well as a peek into Year 4 life and activities!

The Year 4 classrooms are found in the oldest part of school, and having been recently renovated they are a fantastic learning environment for the children to thrive in.

The children are supported in their learning by Mrs Haselgrove, Mrs Powell, Mrs Booty, Mrs Griggs and Mrs Gilbert.

This term 4CD will swim on Tuesday mornings and have outdoor PE on a Wednesday.  4AW have outdoor PE on Tuesday and indoor PE on Wednesday.

Our our main topic over terms 1 and 2 is the Ancient Greeks. 

We will be continuing to use the Singapore Maths scheme 'Maths No Problem' and will be covering formal methods for multiplication and division.

In Literacy, we will be studying intructions and stories involving isssues and dilemmas.

In RE our curriculum will be studying Hinduism and Islam.  We will be making hanging softies in DT and studing electricity in Science.

Homework is given out on a Friday and is due back by the next Wednesday.  In addition, it is expected that our children will read for at least 20 minutes every night and continue to work on their fluency of multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.

Hanging Softies

Marvellous Moussaka

This week children have been cooking and sampling moussaka. They learnt about the key ingredients, and following and writing instructions.  Many children developed a new liking for aubergine!


We have been making paper poppies to mark the 100 year anniversary and have used them alongside our homework to create a new display in our classrooms. We also thought in collective worship about saying thank you to those who served and continue to serve.

Wow, how shocking! - 2.11.18

Today, we all began our electricity topic with a real wow moment. We created circuits using batteries, wires and bulbs and then we all become a human circuit.  This demonstarted to us that electricity is dangerous as we can conduct electricity which is why we must take care when using it.

Greek Pottery

Finished potsWe have been creating coil clay pots as part of our Grrek topic.  Although they took all day to make, we are all very proud of how determined all of the children were to complete this tricky task!
