Welcome to Year 4 – a great place to be!
By the time you get to us, you will have had a whole year settling into school and will know where everything is.
Year 4 is situated right next to Year 3, so you will have seen many of the staff on your way to the computer suite or when you have been off to share your good work with Mr Winson.
In Year 4, we work in a similar way to Year 3 – we use the same maths scheme (Power Maths) and how we teach English will follow a similar structure. In Year 4, times tables are really important because at the end of year 4 the children will complete a statutory multiplication check.

Across the curriculum, we continue the subjects taught in Year 4 but with a whole new range of topics. For instance in History we learn about the Romans, Anglo Saxons and Vikings and in Geography, we learn about Megacities, Sustainability and the Local area.
In the past, we have arranged a variety of trips including an amazing walk in the Peak District which is always a highlight. We also invite in outside educators like a Viking workshop where the children live like Vikings for the day.
In Year 4 some children have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument as part of the Wider Opportunities Music Programme. Year 4 also provides the children with a course of swimming lessons at Queen’s Park Leisure Centre.
We are very lucky to have a fantastic team of experienced teachers and teaching assistants who are keen to work in partnership to ensure we provide the very best provision for our amazing children.
All in all, we are sure you will have a great time in year 4.
