Year 4 2023 - 2024

Mrs Callender

Mrs Christopher


Welcome to Y4

We hope you all had an amazing Summer and are ready to start your Year 4  journey.

The Year 4 team is:

Mrs Christopher and Mrs Callender - class teachers

Miss Smith and Miss Walsh - teaching assistants

In English this half term we are using the text Gorilla by Anthony Brown to help to develop our writing skills and in reading we will be developing our comprehension skills through the book A World Full of Animal Stories by Angela McAllister.

In Maths we start the term by revisiting and broadening our learning of place value and numbers to 10,000.

In the wider curriculum we will be learning about the digestive system and teeth in science, Rivers and Mountains in Geography, cooking and nutrition in DT and computing systems, networks and the internet in Computing. There will be lots of opportunities for practical learning and we will be up, moving and outdoors whenever we can.


Other information

PE is on Tuesday. Children should come into school in their school uniform. Children need a full PE kit in school which will be sent home at the end of each half term.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and collected in the following Wednesday. Homework will consist of spellings and timetables. A spelling test will take place every Friday.  In addition to this, children are expected to read at least x3 per week (parents to record this in their reading records) and complete their weekly reading plus lessons.


If you would like any more information or have any questions please speak to us or contact the office to make a longer appointment.
