Year 4

Welcome to all of our parents, carers and pupils of Year 4. We are missing you all so much and cannot wait to see you all again. Click on the 'Home Learning' tab to access all of the work set by your childs teacher. It would be lovely to see any work that you have completed shared on the schools Facebook and/or Twitter page. 

Teaching Class 4 Barbara Hepworth is Mrs Mir and Mrs Shaw.  Teaching Class 4 David Hockney is Miss Haughin. Our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Malek, Miss Talia and Mrs Briggs.

This half term your child will be taking part in a new curriculum topic called ‘Bright Sparks.’ This topic is about electricity. During this unit, we will be focusing on Science, Technology, History and International.

In Science, we will be finding out:

  • About using electricity as heat
  • How to keep safe around electricity
  • Which materials allow electricity to pass through them

In History, we will be finding out:

  • About the history of the electric light bulb

In International, we will be finding out:

  • How we produce electricity in our country
  • Why saving electricity is good for the planet

To help your child at home you could help them to complete their homework tasks. Spellings are given weekly on EdShed so please help your child practise these during the week.

By the end of Year 4 there is a Curriculum expectation that all children MUST know all their multiplication facts to 12 as well as the division facts. The children will have a PIXL Times tables test in June so it is important that you regularly practise the times tables with your child and play different games so help them memorise the facts.

When you are reading with your child please ask questions about what your child is reading and their opinions on the book as well as signing their reading jotters. Please use Active Learn to support your child's reading from home.
