Year 4 

Welcome to Year 4

2022/23 Academic Year

Welcome to year 4! In year 4, we want to create the opportunity for all children to immerse themselves fully into Key Stage Two and the exciting challenges that it brings. The year 4 team consists of Miss Danks and Miss Steward, the class teachers, who will be supported by Mrs Ashton, Ms Ealey and Mrs Haywood

Together, we are passionate about providing a positive learning environment for the children, where they are engaged and supported in their learning so they can reach their full potential. 

In year 4, we will encourage your child to become more independent, not only in their learning but socially too and we will watching them grow and flourish as the year progresses. 

As part of our science unit ‘Who am I?’ - classifying animals, we have planned a trip to visit the Yorkshire Wildlife Park on Friday 9th June. 

We will be taking part in a handson workshop on animal groups and classification where children will learn about and use a classification key, handling a range of bio-facts and live animals as part of the session. 

We will spend the rest of the day exploring the park. We will be leaving by coach at 8:30am returning to school at approximately 5:30pm. 

Children need to wear school uniform and require a packed lunch and a water bottle on the day. If your child is eligible for free school meals and you would like a lunch to be provided by school please notify the school office. Please do not send your child with fizzy drinks; their normal school water bottle will be sufficient. 

The cost of the trip is £20.00 which includes the coach fare, park entrance and the workshop session. There is a gift shop where the children can purchase a souvenir of the day. Please do not send your child with more than £10. The children will be responsible for their own money during the trip. 

Please complete the electronic form below to give consent for your child to go. 

Residential - The Oakes 

After arriving safely at The Oakes this morning, we unpacked and got ready for a day of fun-filled activities.

We have thoroughly enjoyed of first day! 

A fabulous end to the first day. It's now time for bed! 

24th and 25th April 

Over the last few days year 4 have explored and taken inspiration from significant artists  in order for them to create their own 'Cave Painting' 


The entries for our best decorated egg competition were fantastic and it is clear that a huge amount of effort has gone into all of the eggs. It was a really difficult job for us to judge.

Thank you to everyone who took part.

Friday 24th March 

Thank you to all the year 4 parents for joining us this afternoon at our Games Cafe event.  We had a great time! 

We had a fantastic time at Creswell Crags.

Splitting into 3 groups, we explored caves, practised our survival skills and recreated a skelton of an animal.

A great hands on way to learn .

Autumn Term 2022

We had great fun at our Christmas party this afternoon

10th November 2022 

On the run up to Remembrance Day and linking to their French lessons, children learned what they did in France to remember those who fought in the war.

They learned that although the red poppy synonymous with Remembrance Day in the UK is not used, instead the symbol of remembrance in France is the bleuet, or cornflower.

It was chosen because cornflowers have traditionally symbolised “pure and delicate” sentiments, while blue is one of the colours of the French flag, and was also the colour of many soldiers’ uniforms in the First World War.

Afterwards, we created a piece of work which is now on display in school.

Some children have been busy making remembrance day biscuits today.

They look delicious!
