Welcome to Year 4!

Meet the Team -  

Class teacher: Miss Hartford

Teaching assistant: Mrs Farmer

A typical day in Year 4:

Each day starts with a Busy Book activity, which may have a literacy, numeracy or creative focus, before we gather together in the hall for assembly or song practise. Back in class we have Mental Maths, followed by numeracy, working on our current maths focus through a range of activities. After break we have a session working on grammar, spelling or punctuation, followed by our main writing session for the day.

In the afternoon we normally have a chance to read together, plus activities exploring the wider curriculum, including science, history, geography, languages, P.E. and art.

In Literacy and Mathematics in Year 4, we follow the New National Curriculum. Much of our writing is linked in to our termly topic, using great texts and visual stimuli to develop our creativity and imagination and to grow our general knowledge, whilst also developing us as confident, fluent writers.

In science this year we will be learning about States of Matter, Animals (including humans) and Classification, Living Things and their Habitats, Electricity and Sound. To support our learning we have lots of practical investigations.
