Year 4
Teacher: Mrs Johnson & Mrs Marriott
Teaching Assistant: Miss Little & Mr Horrocks

In Year 4, our main value is 'Respect', whether this is for ourselves, our classmates, adults in the school, equipment or our class and school environment. We always try to ensure we are kind and caring towards each other and help each other whenever possible.

We are a hard working class and we enjoy our learning. We like to discuss our ideas and use a variety of ways to represent our work. We focus on our English and Maths lessons in the mornings, having extra guided reading sessions and assertive mentoring sessions for our maths. We are using our cursive handwriting and are particularly trying hard with our times tables understanding. Later in the day, we get to learn through our topic work as well as covering lots of other exciting subjects.

We all have a target for our Accelerated Reading which we are trying hard to get to. Who will be our first AR Millionaire this year?

We are very lucky, that during the year, we are taking part in the STOPs Obesity Programme and we are having Samba lessons each week. In the summer term we hope to take part in the Harrison Food Programme too. We are also going on some lovely trips this year to support our learning.

Throughout the year, we base our learning around a topic. We also read a core text linked to that topic. The three topics for the year are:
Chocolate and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Recycling, Anglo Saxons and The Iron Man

What a Wonderful World and The Tin Forest

As Year 4 is such a key year, we are encouraged to be responsible for our own learning and our own behaviour. We try to THINK before we SPEAK or ACT. We like to self-assess our work and peer mark our friends' work as well as take note of what our teachers tell us.

Our teachers hope that by the end of the year we will be confident, independent and enthusiastic learners, ready to face the challenges and fun in Year 5!
