Year 4 is an exciting year where the children are beginning to prepare for the Upper Juniors. Learning new knowledge and skills, to enable the transition into Year 5 to be a smooth and seamless one. In Year 4 the children are always encouraged to strive for excellence both independently and as part of a team. There are two teachers working within Y4: Mrs. Myatt and Miss Moon (works with Y4 one day a week). The class are supported by highly trained Learning Assistants across the lessons.
The Year 4 classroom has structure and a clear working environment. All strive strive to ensure all children make superb progress towards their goals. The environment is a safe and caring one where children’s individual talents and achievements are recognised and built upon. We have a Maths area and a class Library where the children are encouraged to develop their independence by accessing the resources when necessary. We are fortunate to have access to computers outside and in our classroom, which we use daily to enhance our learning, through accessing My Lexia and Timestables.co.uk. We also have weekly access to the computer suite where all children are able to learn how to create power points, debug algorithms and are introduced to data handling and understand concepts such as, what is cyber-bullying?
English and Maths:
English and Maths are taught daily and are often incorporated into other lessons. The activities we complete range from practical to written. Our English lessons will be set around books such as 'I Believe in Unicorns’ and ‘The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe’. We use the text to explore grammatical features and to provide us with inspiration for exploring and writing various text types. We have working walls for both English and Maths and ensure that we carefully build upon previous learning. We ensure that we support all pupils to progress and deliver catch up sessions daily.
We have ensured that the curriculum is well thought out for our children and have created sequences of lessons that build upon knowledge in a logical order. We revist sticky knowledge to ensure that the children can retain it and use to build upon. Visits, trips and experiences are woven in to again help children to retain the important information within the topics.
