Welcome to Year 4!


The Year 4 team are very pleased to be able to help and support you on your learning journey this year.

The team is Miss Short, Miss McHugh and Mrs Geddis.  We hope that you have a settled and enjoyable start to the year.


Our very busy and exciting curriculum this term covers, Geography, Science, French, Music, PSHE, Art, Computing, Design and Technology, RE and PE.. not forgetting English and Maths!    

Topics covered will include mixing and comparing colours, learning about our local area, the digestive system, recorders and Buddhism.

In Year 4 there is a big focus on knowledge and recall of multiplication tables and the children will undertake the national multiplication check in the Summer term.  There will be lots of opportunity for practice at school and any practice at home will also be very beneficial. 


Please use the Boom Reader app to log home reading that you complete so that we keep improving our fluency, expression and comprehension skills.  



I am able to discuss any concerns you have at the end of the day and will respond to any emails as soon as possible.  If you have concerns, please speak to me or email .  


Interconnected World

This essential skills and knowledge project teaches children about compass points and four and six-figure grid references. They learn about the tropics and the countries, climates and culture of North and South America. Children identify physical features in the United Kingdom and learn about the National Rail and canal networks. They conduct an enquiry to prove a hypothesis, gathering data from maps and surveys before drawing conclusions.


Food and The Digestive System

This project teaches children about the human digestive system. They explore the main parts, starting with the mouth and teeth, identifying teeth types and their functions. They link this learning to animals' diets and construct food chains to show the flow of energy.

Art and Design
