Welcome to Year 4!

Class Teachers: Mrs Griffiths (Monday-Wednesday) Miss Moss (Thursday and Friday)

Teaching Assistants: Ms Hudson & Mrs Maxwell


Happy New Year to you all!  Year 4 have made a fabulous start to the New Year.

Keep checking our class page for updates on all of the fantastic things we will be doing in school!



Please note that this term we will be doing PE on a Thursday afternoon, and ensure that you have a PE kit in school.  We are delighted to announce lessons will be taught by PDS (Platinium, Dance and Sport) .


Homework and Spellings

Both homework and spellings will be given out on a Thursday.

Homework is to be completed by Tuesday.

Spellings will be tested the following Thursday.  We are focusing as a school on 'Common Exception Words' for the current year group and previous year groups where necessary.  These are words that cannot often be spelt phonetically and are most commonly used in their writing.




Reading is incredibly important to us in Year 4.  School policy states that children must read at home at least three times a week in addition to any reading done in school.  Reading must be recorded in their yellow reading record book and signed by an adult.  We thank you for your support with this.

We will be awarding prizes for the children who read the most at home - who will it be?


Our Topic

This term our topic is 'Raiders and Invaders' where we will study the impact of the Anglo-Saxons on Britain to the shock of the Viking attack and how this has shaped the life today.  We will look especially at villages and use of science knowledge of materials to build a scaled model of a Saxon house.  In Art we will look at the paintings of 'Constable' and how he was inspired by the English countryside shaped by the Anglo Saxons.  We will also look at the impotance of water for the new settlements.

Our class novel for this term is 'The Time Travelling Cat and the Viking Terror' by Julia Jarman.  The children read a novel by her last term which depicted life in Egyptian Times.  We look forward to comparing the two.
