Year 4 2020-2021

Welcome to Year 4! Follow our school Facebook page to see photographs of our learning.


Your teachers this year are Miss Darby and Miss Bowmaker. Mrs Vernon will also be supporting in class and working with some children for interventions. On a Wednesday afternoon, Mrs Swirles will teach music and Mr Crater will be teaching PE lessons. 


We are very much looking forward to learning this term and we are extremely pleased with how the children have settled back into school routines. We can't wait to share our learning with you!


This year, school reading books will go home on Monday and must be returned on Friday. Your child will also be able to take a book from their class reading corner to enjoy over the weekend. We love celebrating reading in Year 4 and ask that your child still reads every night. This could be reading a couple of pages and then discussing parts of the text with you. Alternatively, you could ask your child questions about what they have read. There is a link to a variety of question types below.


PE kits will need to be in school on Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a labelled uniform and PE kit to prevent any items from going missing. Also, we ask that water bottles are in school every day. 


Below, we have provided a list of useful websites to help support learning this half term.
