Class Teachers

Our School Day

This is what a typical school day looks like in Year 4.

Our Foundation Subjects:



Design Technology





Physical Education

Religious Education

Relationships, Health Education




P.E. is taught twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Your child should keep their P.E. kit in a named bag in school all week and it should include:

  • A house colour t-shirt
  • Black shorts
  • Black jogging bottoms
  • Black jumper
  • Trainers/plimsoles. 

Please ensure that all items are named as this makes it easier to return items if they are mislaid.


Outdoor Learning

At points during the year, your child will engage in Outdoor Learning. When your child is participating in Outdoor Learning, they will need to come to school in their uniform and bring the following with them:

  • A warm jumper
  • A waterproof coat
  • Long trousers
  • Wellies
  • Warm socks

4C and 4R will be participating in outdoor learning on alternate Wednesdays in term 2.

The dates are as follows;

4C - 1st November, 15th November, 29th November and 13th December.

4R - 8th November, 22nd November, 6th December and 13th December.

Please note on the 13th December both classes will be participating.



Reading is fundamental to all children's education. In Lower Key Stage 2, we will be focusing on a range of key skills including retrieving and recording information, summarising main ideas, drawing inferences, predicting what might happen next,  explaining the meaning of words in context and discussing, expressing and justifying views about a wide range of texts.


In addition to the reading that your child will engage with at school, they are expected to read at home at least four times a week and should record their reflection in their reading record. Although your child will be more independent with their reading, it is important that you engage in discussions with their reading and on a regular basis, still listen to them read. As a school, we celebrate and recognise how often your child reads using our 'Reading Around the Universe' initiative. 


Your child is responsible for changing their own book once they have completed it. Please can you work with us to encourage your child to choose books from a variety of genres and authors.
