We enjoy a broad and balanced curriculum with a wide range of creative activities. Our topics are;

Keep Calm and Carry on in World War 2! (Autumn 2)

Mountain Journeys (Spring 1)

Caribbean Cruise (Spring 2)

Emergency Emergency! (Summer 2)

Throughout the year there are opportunities for parents and carers to join us in class to share our activities. We look forward to seeing you at these events.


What do Year 4 children need and when?


       PE lessons take place on Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has a full kit and jewellery is not worn.


Class reading books should be taken home and returned to school on a daily basis so that children can practice their reading both at school and at home. 

There should be at least 1 comment in per week with an adult from home.


What a Wonderful World!

Last term, as part of our 'Here We Are' project, Year 4 learnt the song 'What a Wonderful World' and discussed the meaning of what makes our world wonderful. We have had a go at signing the song to demonstrate how beautiful it is - what do you think?
