Welcome to Year 4

On this page, you will be able to find information about our weekly routines and further details about the what happens in year 4.

Year 4 is about developing the child to become more independent in their learning and beginning to grow to take more responsibility for themselves and their learning. They have moved on from being in the very capable care of Mrs Dove and should now be working on implementing their learning and making effective choices. As well as having fun.



Homework will be issued on a Wednesday, to be handed in the following Wednesday. It is expected that the children spend 20mins on each but if they wish to spend longer, that is their choice. Usually, the maths work will be connected to the work that they have been learning ion class that week and so they should be fairly confident with one of the sections that they can choose.

The English homework will be based on grammar or comprehension. Again, this should be for around 20minutes. Your child may complete the all of the exercises in that time but understanding of the concepts presented, at their own level is more important.

Times tables practice is a must. The children will be taking a national online test at the end of the year up to x12. they will have 25 questions to answer, using a keyboard to enter their answers; 6 seconds for each question.

Reading on a daily basis is strongly encouraged and we are lucky to have a wide range of reading materials at the children's disposal. 

Spelling lists will be given out on a Friday for the following Thursday. These lists are available on EdShed.

STEM Challenge

Recently, year 4 pupils were treated to an afternoon being engineers; creating and solving problems. Their task was to build a bridge and a machine that would put the bridge in place. Sarah Laylor from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Worcestershire, visited and presented the task. The children were thoroughly engaged, working together with the Technics kits to create super solutions. The winners were Lia and Rosalind, who will go on to represent the school at the finals in June.



Food Nutrition Workshop at the Kings' School

On Monday 15th January, Year 4 visited the King's school to learn about healthy eating and how we should all eat a "rainbow". They then made flat breads and a salad to accompany them. There were some budding chefs in the class!
