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,  and Mrs Arnold.

This term 4AW will swim on Tuesday mornings and have outdoor PE on a Monday.  4CD also have outdoor PE on Monday and indoor PE on Wednesday.  Every day we take part in other 'active' breaks such as Go Noodle and the Daily Mile around our all weather track.

Our main topic is Ancient Greece. We will be looking at the impact the Ancient Greeks have had on our lives today including democracy, the olympics and some unusual inventions. 

In Maths, we have begun following a new scheme, Power Maths and have been focussing on place value, addition and subtraction.  We have also been focussing on times tables in preperation for the end of year multiplication test. 

In Literacy, we will be looking at story writing with a focus on writing direct speech, and also writing instructions linked to our Art and DT projects. 

In RE our curriculum will be studying images in world religions.  

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.

3rd April - Rocking Romans!

The children today completed their two performances to parents of the production 'Rocking Romans'.   All of the cast were fantastic with superb singing and awesome acting.  A big well done to everyone.


Hanging Softies

We have been busy designing and making our hanging softies ready for Christmas to decorate your tree! A sneak preview can be seen of some of the finished items in the gallery.

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.
