Miss Hunter teaches Year 4 Monday to Thursday.

Swimming takes place on a Wednesday afternoon in the autumn and summer term.
PE day and Sports Leaders training is on a Friday for the autumn term. Please remember that you come to school dressed in your outdoor PE kit on your PE day.
We have started to think about how we learn and what helps us to learn on our transition days.
We've made plans for the layout and organisation of Year 4 too.
Most importantly we've started to plan our new topic for the autumn term which is World War Two.
What kind of ration recipes can we make?
How many countries were involved?
Where can we visit to find out more information about World War Two?
What would the world be like now if WWII was still happening?
In Maths we follow the White Rose schemes of work which ensure our children have a well-rounded mastery approach to Maths.
If you would like to look at the resources we use and the schemes of work you can see them on:

Today we welcomed our families into class to find out about the Multiplication check at the end of Year 4 and how we learn our times tables.
We had lots of fun playing games, singing songs and dancing along to BBC Super movers.
