Welcome to Year 4's class page!


This year has been so exciting and successful for the children because of their hard work, commitment to their learning and their willingness to try new things.  They have had a lot of unusual and unique challenges and they have risen to them all.  Credit for their successes also need to go to Miss Harrison, who has gone above and beyond in their Art and DT lessons.  In fact, a third of the work displayed in our museum was created in her lessons.  She has worked through breaks, lunches and evenings to create resources and plan schemes of work for them.


Mrs Sinclair was my TA partner this year, supporting the children from day -to-day in their lessons.  Her care and experience made a massive difference to their progress and her sense of humour has kept us all laughing.  In the run-up to the museum, she became a whirlwind of efficiency and organisation for everybody!


Mrs Burnett has nurtured and supported children who needed to revisit some previous skills before moving their progress forward and her help has been invaluable all year.


I have absolutely loved teaching your children this year and I always find this bit the hardest time.  Thank you for all of your support over the last 11 months and I hope you all have a fantastic summer.  Pop in and say hello next year!


Please spend some time looking at our experiences...


Year 4 Outdoor Games

On Friday 12th, Year 4 hosted the 4th annual outdoor games. They designed and planned the games themselves with the following guidelines:

1. There must be a scoring system, 

2. The games must be playable by all year groups, 

3. The games must be designed to get as many children through as quickly as possible to avoid queues


It was a glorious summer afternoon and the class did an amazing job.


Here they are before and after the games!
