Support, Challenge, Inspire



 Welcome to Year 4. Our teachers this year are Miss Hartney and Ms Qualters.


The school day starts at 8.50am when children enter from the KS2 playground and come straight into class and complete their morning Maths or English work. The school door closes at 9:00am. This is also a time where we work on any misconceptions from the previous day  so this first 30 minutes of the day is a vital time to revise skills learnt and correct any errors so being on time is crucial.

Children can be collected from the KS2 playground at 3.15pm. Please allow them to walk to the main playground area with their class so they can be safely dismissed, if they go home without a teacher knowing it can cause worry.

We communicate regularly through Class Dojo, please check regularly for updates and reminders and use this to let us know if there are any issues you would like help with.


This Term The School Topic is Great Britain

In History we are studying The Romans in Britain

In Science we are classifying British Animals

In Geography we are looking at London 

In RE we are looking at What it is like to be a Hindu in Britain


Our P.E days moving forward will be Tuesday and Wednesday.  

PE Kit This is important because the children get changed for both hygiene and safety reasons. They need white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers or pumps.
They can also have black jogging bottoms for outdoor PE if they wish. 

For safety reasons jewellery should not be worn during PE lessons this includes ear rings.

Snack Time

We encourage healthy eating in school and as such all snacks for break time must be healthy options.  The children are not allowed to have crisps or chocolate etc at break time.  Thank you for your continued support on this.



All the children have been allocated a reading book based on the results of school reading assessments which will be reviewed on an on going basis. This book can be changed on a Monday or Friday. It is vital that you read with your child regularly to ensure they make progress, increase their confidence in all areas and studies at home show that it is excellent for well being.


As you will already be aware we have our new Reading Challenge ongoing in school! Many children are already well on the way to getting their Bronze certificate in the next few weeks! Please see the school reading page for further details.

Keep up the good work!

Multiplication Check

After Year 4 in order to be able to access the correct level of Maths learning it is vital that the children know their Times Table. To support with this, the Government have introduced a nation wide tables test which your child will take in June 2023. To support them with their learning it would be great if you can practice times tables with them regularly. Thank you

Great websites to support learning

Times Tables Rockstars and Purple Mash

All children have access to TT Rockstars to support their tables practice and Purple Mash to support all areas of the curriculum.
