Welcome to Year 4 where we aim to develop confidence and resilience and look forward to seeing your child become an individual with a voice.
In Year 4 you will find class teachers Mrs Boyer and Mr Lynch, Teaching Assistants Mrs Patrick, Mrs Walker and Miss Carole and Pastoral Member Mrs Givan. This term we are lucky enough to also be working with two Associate Teachers Miss Hollinshead and Mr Rawsthorne.
During this year we will be expanding our knowledge through having a positive ‘can do’ attitude to our learning.
We will continue our weekly PE lessons this year. At the moment swimming lessons are on hold, but hopefully will start again later in the year. Children will need a full PE kit for our inside lessons (black shorts and a white t-shirt). This half term we will be cycling so children will need tracksuit bottoms or leggings and gloves as it can be cold. School provides bikes and helmets, however if your child has their own bike they are welcome to use it. Please check Seesaw for the most up to date information.

Throughout Year 4 we hope that children continue to develop their confidence, understanding and fluency in reading. Children will read daily, either privately or with an adult, so we ask that reading folders are in school every day. We also encourage children to read daily at home.
The only other additional homework we would like the children to work on in Year 4 is their times tables. At the end of this academic year children in Year 4 have to take a statutory times table test, and speed is the key.
To keep you up to date with messages, photographs and videos, we will continue to use the Seesaw app, which you can download on your phone and receive notifications instantly about your child.
If you don’t have access to this or need any further information please feel free to send us an email.
In Year 4 we believe that teamwork is the key to progress, success and happiness and would like to welcome you to our team
