Year 4

Home Learning (2021)
Hi Everyone,

We will be sharing a weekly learning menu on this page which will be available from first thing Monday mornings.  The learning menu will mirror what we are teaching key worker children who are in school.  The expectation is that children working from home do the English and Maths lessons daily so that once we return to normal teaching all children are at the same point.
We will also be offering GoogleMeet drop-in meetings where children or parents can ask questions about their home learning or raise any other queries/concerns. Please feel free to contact us via Class Dojo if you would like to book a meeting. 
Children working at home should please aim to share at least 2 pieces of Maths and English over each week.
Please contact us via Dojo if you have any questions or queries relating to the learning menu and the continuation of your child's education whilst at home. We will get back to you as soon as possible. 
Thank you, 
Year 4 Teachers 
Below is our temporary, in school timetable of learning for Spring Term 2021. We hope this helps families who have their child in school part time so they know what set lessons we will cover whilst they are in school with us and what will still need to be covered on homeschooling days. 
Those of you purely homeschooling, please continue to choose from our learning menu all week as usual. We have supplied a blank timetable should it be useful.

Welcome to Year 4
Let us introduce ourselves to you and your children. 

Mr Jack Bolton

Eagles Class Teacher

I am extremely excited about teaching in Year 4 again this year. We have a wonderful array of Power of Reading books which facilitate fun and engaging lessons. The topics we cover are brilliant to teach as they always captivate the children’s imagination. We will start the year by making our classroom immersive, in line with our first book - WILD. We will then begin exploring Ancient Egypt and move through the Arctic, to mythical Icelandic lands! As a Year 4 teacher, I will ensure children develop the process of independent thinking, learning and decision making- taking responsibility for how, when and where they learn best.

Mrs Lisa Graham

Hawks Class Teacher (Mon-Tues)

Having spent most of my career teaching older children, it has been a breath of fresh air coming into Year 4. The sheer level of enthusiasm and creativity is contagious. We are lucky to have a magnificent array of books in Year 4: Tutankharmun's story, The Ice Bear and Wild to name a few. They all take us on wonderful journeys into different cultures and are gateways into exciting new worlds. Being able to combine English, Art, DT, Geography and History in completely immersive environments means that Year 4 is a truly inspirational year. It is also a pleasure seeing our children developing and refining their independent learning skills to be the very best learners that they can be.

Mrs Charlotte Ross

Hawks Class Teacher (Weds-Fri)

After being off on maternity leave, it is so lovely to come back to Year 4 this year. It's a big change to be teaching part time but I now have a gorgeous little toddler at home to take care of on my days off. The books we base our learning on in Year 4 are so exciting and moving. I love seeing the children inspired to ask questions and have ownership of their learning too. My personal favourites being 'The Ice Bear' and 'Croc and Bird'. Science and History are by far my favourite subjects to teach which we link to our power of reading books too. The children are often enthusiastic about these subjects and I love watching their learning unfold and curiosity grow though hands on, practical exploration.

In Year 4, our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Trett and Mrs Hearsum.

Mrs Eldred will be running Forest School sessions with Year 4 throughout the school year. Each child in Year 4 will receive at least half a terms Forest school sessions on a Friday afternoon.
When your child will be having these sessions will be communicated to you via DOJO.

Welcome to Year 4
We are disappointed we won’t get the opportunity to meet the parents as we normally would at the start of an academic year, so have made a short PowerPoint to introduce ourselves and provide you with information about the upcoming year.
Our classrooms
We have worked really hard on making sure our classrooms are still inviting and nurturing spaces as well as being Covid Safe. Children have their own places to sit and their own equipment. Displays are updated regularly so they represent the learning that is taking place in the classes. In Year 4 we make our classrooms immersive in line with our Power of Reading book. At the beginning of each half term, the children design and decorate their classrooms and always enjoy the process. We also have a 'working wall' and interactive displays, such as our Reading Challenge Charts.
