Welcome to Year 4!
We have had a wonderful start to the year so far. The Year 4 team have been extremely impressed with how quickly the children have settled into their new routines, and their positive learning attitudes.
As we journey through Year 4, we will encourage the children to develop focus; work independently and learn to approach their work in a variety of new and interesting ways. We have very high expectations of behaviour, presentation and resilience to learning in Year 4, and look forward to supporting every child on their voyage to becoming mature, enthusiastic and self-reliant learners.
This year we have lots of exciting things planned. Towards the end of October, we visited The Mayflower Theatre to take part in a Welsh National Orchestra Schools Concert; we held an Egyptian Day/Museum Open Afternoon at the end of last half term, and towards the end of the year, we will take part in an exciting ’Escape Rooms’ adventure as part of our Deadly & Dangerous Topic.
We hope that this page will give you plenty of information about this year and what happens in Year 4. I have attached some 'important information' to support you through the year, but if you have any further questions, please feel free to chat to any of the Year 4 teaching team at the end of the school day. We will always be happy to help.
Our PE sessions are on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. I would ask that all children keep their PE kit in school for the whole half-term, in case these days need to change to accommodate other exciting learning opportunities.
Home School Diaries
Please use these books as a way of communicating learning-linked questions, and providing evidence of home reading.
If you wish to speak to your child’s teacher about a sensitive matter, we would ask that you try not to write this in their book, but arrange a meeting with them/catch them at the end of the school day instead. This will help us to keep information about your child as confidential as possible.
Please visit our Home Learning page, for information on our weekly homework expectations.
Thank you for your support so far - we look forward to a successful year together!
