Year 4 2020 - 2021
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 3 members of staff working within Y4: Mrs Hattersley is the full-time class teacher and Mrs Rumsey is the Teaching Assistant. Mrs Dews also works with Y4 Tuesday mornings.
We have a safe, caring learning environment where children’s individual talents and achievements are recognised and built upon. We have both a Maths and English area and the children are encouraged to develop their independence by accessing the resources when necessary. We have two class computers and 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 through the Learning Challenge Curriculum, such as the Normans, the Vikings, the digestive system 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.
