Welcome to the new school year!

This is Year 4’s class page. Keep an eye on this page as we will be updating it regularly with exciting news about our learning and events.

In Year 4 we have two classes, Larch and Cedar class. In Larch class we have Mrs Wright, who is the class teacher and Mrs Malik who is the teaching assistant. In Cedar class we have Miss Kauser who is the class teacher and Mrs Nasir who is the teaching assistant. We also have Mrs Hussain who is the HLTA across both classes in Year 4. If you have any questions or queries about Year 4, please don’t hesitate to contact one of us and we will be happy to help.


In Year 4 we have P.E on a Tuesday morning. Please ensure your child has their correct kit in school on this day. We also go swimming on a Thursday morning, as this is part of the curriculum all children must partake in these lessons so full correct kit is necessary.

Reading –

Across school there is a focus on reading. Therefore it is important that you are reading with your child regularly. Once they have read, they are expected to fill in their reading journal, this should also be signed by the adult who has read with them.

Homework –

In year 4 children will receive homework for Maths and English once a week. In addition to this children will be given spellings to learn which they will be tested on weekly. Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be expected back in school on Wednesday. If children are unsure of what to do or are finding it difficult, then they should bring this to the attention of the class teacher before the date it is due in.

During our first week in year 4 we have been getting our thinking caps on and designing our very own ‘cracking contraptions’ We watched clips of Wallace and Gromits’ ‘cracking contraptions’ to inspire us with our own creations. Here are some of our fabulous designs.




To get to know ourselves a bit better we have drawn some self-portraits and added them to our class gallery. We worked carefully to ensure all our features were in proportion. Did you know the width of your face is about five of your eyes across your face? Have a look below, we may have some Piacosso’s amongst us!

In Autumn one, our science topic was sound. We learned all about how the ear works. We then made our own instruments using junk modelling.

During Autumn Two, our topic was ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’. We had a visitor who came in to show us how to make pizza. They were really delicious!

In Spring One,we were rading Charlie and the Chocolate factory. We went to York and visited a real chcoclate factory! We found out how to make chocolate and  got to eat lots of chocolate.

After we had been to the chocolate factory, we decided to use what we had learned to make chocolate lollies and sell them for our enterprise. We made £124.55!

In French we have been learning how to say what we prefer. We had pancakes and tried them with different toppings and said which we preferred in French. The favourite was chocolate!

This term our Science topic is electricity. We have started by investigating electric circuits to make a light bulb work.
