Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Hello Parents and Carers,

I hope that you are all safe and well and coping with home learning.

To help I have made a timetable of activities for you and your child to try each day. Please don’t worry if you cannot do everything.  The most important thing is not to get stressed and enjoy spending time talking and having fun with your child.

Thank you for all your support!

Stay safe

The Ice Palace

Ivan lives in a land where the winter is dark and fearful. Starjik, King of Winter, steals Ivan's little brother and Ivan braves the bitter cold to find him. 


During Topic, Year 4 are learning all about Africa and understanding global geographical locations such as Northern Hemisphere, the Southern Hemisphere, the Equator.  They have even transformed their classroom to help with understanding these locations.



Stig of the Dump


Barney is a solitary little boy, given to wandering off by himself.  One day he is lying on the edge of a disused chalk-pit when it gives away and he lands in a sort of cave.  Here he meets 'somebody with a lot of shaggy hair and two bright black eyes' wearing a rabbit skin and speaking in grunts.  He names him Stig.


How will Barney communicate with Stig and will anyone really believe that cave-man Stig is totally real?


Firemen visit

Year 4 had a visit from our local firemen who told them all about being safe at home.  The children learned about how to prevent fires, calling for help and how to be safe at home.






Parent Workshop


Year 4 children invited their families to come and work with them in class. Year 4's topic this half term is water so using water they created a build up picture. A great time was had by all.
