Year 4

Welcome to Year 4’s page.

Throughout the school year we will be exploring a wide range ofexciting themes and topics.

In Year 4, there is a real enthusiasm to approach learning with a positive attitude with ‘I Can’ at the forefront of every child’s mind. Class 4B is taught by Mr Bird and class 4WH is taught by Mrs Williams and Mrs Hallett. The children are also very lucky to have Ms Coville, a superb classroom assistant, who works alongside the teachers to support the children.
We cover lots of subjects throughout the school year, teaching a variety of topics, including the Romans, The Anglo-Saxons, Animals and their habitats and many more that will enthuse and excite the children right across the curriculum. All children are encouraged to work to the very best of their ability and give their all, being challenged and supported every step of the way. We believe it is essential that children have a positive growth mindset to learning At the heart of it all, our priority is to ensure every child has the platform they need to reach their full potential.

Highlights for this half term

During this half term, Y4 have enjoyed a successful trip to Styal Mill. We learned about the cotton industry and its impact on Manchester. We have also explored the work of the Salford artist, L.S. Lowry, and created our own works of art.

Science Day was exciting! We melted chocolate and investigated the weight of gas using fizzy pop! We all found this fascinating.

As part of our Christmas celebrations, we visited St.Alban’s Church to experience “Rewind To Christmas”. We have also been busy learning songs and rehearsing for our Christmas production with Y3. The final carol concert at the end of December was an exciting, yet thoughtful time, reflecting on what Christmas means to us.

Things to look forward to…

Building wonderful classroom communities with parents, carers and pupils.
