Year Four

Hola! This year Year Four will be taught by:

Miss Furness and Mrs Walker smiley


Thank you to all our parents and carers who joined us for our V.E Day party to celebrate the end of World War 2 and our Spring term topics. We are sure you are as proud of your children as we are for all their hard work and the amazing effort they put into creating such a fantastic afternoon. 

In the Summer term, we will be learning all about...

Volcanoes Around the World.

We started our new topic with a homework project over the Easter holidays. The children were asked to research Volcanoes and present their findings in any way they chose. We were overwhelmed with the amazing projects the children returned with after the holidays, we had 3d models, art work, interesting facts pages, newspaper reports, powerpoints and information booklets! All homework projects are now on display in our classroom. 

We will be learning all about Volcanoes in our Geography topic and will be painting volcanoes using different mediums in our Art lessons and making working models in our D.T lessons. We will also be working with Mr Derbyshire, our resident Volcano Expert during this term too.


This term in Science, we will be focusing on 'Animals and their Habitats' and 'Electricity.' In both topics we will be planning and carrying out many exciting investigations. 


In the Summer Term, PE sessions will continue to be on a Tuesday afternoon. Children should keep their PE kit at school at all times as this can change. At the end of Year 3, our class won a trophy for being the 'Best Dressed' and ALWAYS having full P.E kit, we would really like to win this trophy again next year so need to make sure we are all playing our part and bringing our P.E kit in.


Children are given a homework log every Friday. They must practise their class and individual spellings, times tables and read their reading book every night at home and get an adult to tick and sign the log. The logs are checked by myself or Mrs Walker every morning during registration and if they aren't signed the children will stay in at dinner time to practice.

Times Tables

The expectation for times tables is that the by the end of Year 4, children should know all the times tables up to the twelves. This means knowing the tables in order, in random order and knowing the division facts for all times tables. Tables are tested fortnightly by Mrs Walker but must be practised daily in order for children to acheive their personal target. When they have learned them all, they are tested by Mr Wilson to become a 'Times Tables Champion' and have their photograph on the wall of fame. We are hoping to fill the board with photographs of Year 4 by the end of this school year!


Class spellings will be given out every Thursday and will be tested the following Thursday. These words are taken from the English Curriculum list of Year 3/4 words and all children are expected to be able to spell and use these words independently in their writing by the end of Year 4. Sometimes words will be given related to the current class topics. Individual spellings are tested and given out fortnightly by Mrs Walker and must also be practised daily in order for the children to achieve their personal target and make progress.


Class trip the the theatre

Thank you very much to all parents and carers for sending in the first installments of money for our  class trip to the theatre later in the year. Having the deposits paid early enabled us to book the tickets as soon as they went on sale and we were all excited to see the tickets arrive in school. We will send home letters nearer to the time to give more information and to collect the remainder of the trip balance.
