Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Miss Andrews and Mr Wilson are the teachers in Year 4, supported by Miss Warren and Miss Hawley.


If you work hard and try your best, Y4 will be a fun, enjoyable and rewarding time.

Working together positively and learning the skills of effective communication and co-operation will help you have a successful year.

Our Learning


We explore a range of different genres including instructions, recounts, news reports, narratives and we even write our own myth. We also look at a variety of poems and stories by different authors including Paddington and Mr Stink. 

Make sure you practise your spellings and your handwriting. Our spelling tests are always on a Friday. 

Remember to read regularly and ask an adult to sign your Contact Book so that you can move up the reading challenge!



We will build on our mathematical skills and develop our strategies with problem solving, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be learning about Roman numerals and why our number system changed. By the end of Year 4, you need to know all of your times tables so make sure your practise lots at home! Weekly times tables tests are on a Friday. To practise your times tables regularly you can access Times Tables Rockstars ( 


In Year 4, we learn how to play the violin. Our lessons are weekly and each class will learn the instrument for half of the academic year which is lots of fun! 


In Year 4, we learn a variety of sports and skills including gymnastics, dance, football, basketball, handball, dodgeball and athletics. Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Friday. From February we will be swimming on Friday afternoons.


We continue to improve our scientific skills and knowledge across our four themes. 

We will look at: 

  • Sound
