During this year, the children in Year 4 will be learning a wide range of skills, covered through the teaching of both core and foundation subjects. We are lucky enough to have weekly ukulele lessons which take place every Thursday. Currently, we are having a great time learning in Year 4 and can’t wait to see what the rest of the school year has to offer
The Year 4 school day begins at 8:55am and ends at 3:15pm Monday – Friday.
Year 4 Staff will be out in the playground each morning at 8:50am if parents/carers wish to discuss any matters before the school day begins. There is a mid-morning break from 10:30 -10.45am, and a lunch break from 12:30 – 1:30pm.

PE takes place every Thursday and Friday: Could you please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school during the above days. It is advised that your child has their kit with them every day so that they can take part in any sporting activities that occur throughout the week. PE outdoors will be subject to weather conditions during the colder months. During the Spring term, we take part in swimming lessons at Northfield Leisure Centre. In order to take part in these lessons your child will need a swimming costume/swimming trunks and a towel.
Your child will be provided with a reading diary and reading book for them to take home and share with parents/carers. Please can you hear your child read every night and write a comment about what they have read. Reading diaries should be in school every day.
Weekly homework is sent out every Friday and is due back into school on the following Wednesday. Children will need to practise their timetables every night to help support them with their maths work in school. There are some excellent websites that can support your child with these skills (see links below). Spellings are set every week for a test on the following Friday.
We have elected some of our children in Year 4 to represent us in different ways within our school. They each help to provide a voice for Year 4 and represent our class extremely well. They are:
- School Councillors – Shannon and Dominic
- Unicef Ambassadors – Ibrahim and Tasjjah
ECO Ambassador – Scarlett
Safeguarding Ambassadors – Enya and Archer
Each half term in Year 4 we will invite you to join us for a Parent Workshop. Every workshop will focus on the learning that has happened during the current half term. There are other workshops that occur throughout the year which you will be notified about at least a week before. There will also be three reading breakfasts throughout the year for you to join us to celebrate books with your child.
