Year 4 2020 - 2021

Mrs Calderbank

Mrs. Calderbank  - Class Teacher

Mrs.  Rumsey      - Learning Assistant

Year 4 is an exciting year as the children are preparing for Upper Juniors and the roles and responsibilities they will gain. In Year 4 the children are always encouraged to strive for excellence both independently and as part of a team. There are 2 members of staff working within Y4: Mrs. Calderbank is the full-time class teacher  and Mrs. Rumsey is the Learning Assistant. 

Learning Environment:

We have a safe, caring learning environment where children’s individual talents and achievements are recognised and built upon.  We have both an Maths and English area and the children are encouraged to develop their independence by accessing the resources when necessary. We have  access to a bank of computers outside our classroom which we use daily to enhance our leanring as well as weekly access to the computer suite and iPads.

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 and they are always differentiated to cater for the different learning needs of the children. Our English lessons are taught around a book such as 'Harry Potter' and 'Oranges in No Man's Land'. We use the text to explore grammatical features and to provide us with inspiration for exploring and writing different text types.


We learn about lots of exciting topics throughout the year which we are certain all of the children will really enjoy. Some of the exciting topics to be studied include the Romans, Food Chains  and the study of the local area. To enhance our learning, we aim to take part in exciting trips, such as Jorvick viking centre and PGL. Click on the 'Curriculum Overview' document, for more information.
