Welcome to Year 4


Hello and welcome back to all the Year 4 children. We will use this page to keep you informed on the exciting activities and learning that will be happening throughout the year for your children.


Throughout this half term we are learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We are focussing on the Egyptians through our English, History and Reading. In Science we are learning about sound and looking at how sound travels through the air and how instruments are used to create sounds of different texture, tone and pitch.


This half term in maths we are focussing on place value and are looking at 4 digit numbers. We will compare, order and find more of less than a given number.


We appreciate your support as parents at home to extend your child’s learning through extra research and home reading. The additional support of parents will help children to really excel this year. This year the children will be sitting the timetables and division test at the end of the year and it is very important that you support with their learning and help them achieve their targets. 


We look forward to an enjoyable year and working with you and your children.

Science Boffins

The children really enjoyed meeting the Science Boffin scientist and finding out about the different states of matter. They learnt about atoms and the three states of matter. In the workshop children were able to see and use dry ice and even made their very own slushy. 

We had a  visit from the local Priest talking about communities.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Acting out show to tell descriptions about characters from the story.



British Museum Trip

This half term year 4 visited the British Museum to look at the Ancient Egyptian exhibition and gallery. They looked at many different artifacts and saw the importance in the way the Egyptians lived. This was fun and educational.
