Primary & Nursery School

Year 4

Staff: Miss Beard and Miss Bailey

This half term we have been exploring the Roman Empire. We will be concluding our work with a double page spreads to show off what we have found out.

Catapult challenge!

The children will be faced with a challenge of designing and creating a catapult. They will then put it through rigorous testing during one of our woodland sessions.


Reading Challenge

We challenge all members of the class to read every night of the week. We celebrate all reading achievements and love hearing about the books that have been enjoyed. Each week we choose a reading superstar, this is someone who has given 110% in their reading or has conquered a personal reading goal – It is great to see this happen!

Outdoor Learning

Our outdoor learning day this year is Tuesday afternoon. It is important your child comes to school already dressed appropriately – long sleeves and trousers as well as suitable footwear in a bag.

We spend our time exploring our fantastic outdoor space, taking part in a variety of hands on activities and learning new skills. 


We will be swimming each Monday up until half term. Can you please make sure that the children come to school wearing their PE kit and have a swimming kit in a separate bag to change into. 

Our next PE session is on a Thursday- again when the children will need to come to school in their PE kit.

Class Dojo

Class Dojo will continue to be used this year. It is a great space where you can view photos, videos and information about what is happening in Year 4 and across the school. If you require another invitation to join, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Home Learning

Each half term a new homework menu containing six actvities will be given out. Your child will need to complete a minimum of 5 activities each half term, by submitting this on their Class Dojo profile by Friday each week. 


Please can you ensure that all belongings and named (PE Kits – Wellies – School Uniform – Bags – Coats – Water bottles etc).
