Year 4



The teachers in Year Four are Mrs Ignatov (4I), Miss Doyle (4D) and Miss O'Flynn (4O'F).


The teaching assistants are Mrs Cook and Mrs Lochowska .


In Year Four we will set homework every Thursday which is due back in the following Tuesday each week. We know that reading is important to support your child's imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. Therefore, reading for up to 15 minutes each evening for up to 5 evenings per week will be expected as part of your child's weekly homework. We know it's important that children enjoy reading and so we are happy for this to be a school reading book, a library book, or a book from home so that your child has a wide range to choose from. Please ensure you listen to your child read, ask them questions and sign their reading record each evening. 

Many thanks,

The Year Four Team.

Training to serve salad to KS1 children and LKS2

 This week, the Year 4 children had a training session to serve salad to children in Reception, KS1 and LKS2.  This is to encourage children to eat their greens. They will all have a go at serving salad and are very excited to start this next week. smiley


We will keep you posted.




This week in our English lessons the children worked in groups of six to portray the feelings of different characters.  They had to freeze frame a scene from the book The Iron Man and demonstrate how the character felt and reacted to the news that Iron Man is alive, posing a threat to the farmers.  

Planning our persuasive letters

Here are some pictures from our performance of the Easter Story in St Thomas' Church on Wednesday for those of you who were unable to make it. All the children were brilliant on the day, their voices rang clear through the church and our narrators and actors did a great job telling the story of Easter.


On Wednesday 27th February 2019, we welcomed a number of parents into our classrooms for a Writing Workshop. The focus of the session was for parents to understand the editing process and what we are expecting of the children when they improve their work. During the session, children and parents alike worked to edit a piece of work which was littered with mistakes. Focusing on punctuation, spelling, adverbial and prepositional phrases, imagery and thesaurus work (upgrading vocabulary choices)  everyone worked together to improve the piece of work. 

Parents who attended the workshop were given a copy of the writing expectations for Year 4. This is available at the top of this page.


As the session ended we asked the parents for some feedback on the session, here's what they had to say!


"I find the workshops helpful because it helps me to help my son at home with his work."


"I think it's a fantastic idea to involve parents so that we can help our children."


"Very helpful! I learnt a few things myself that will be very helpful when assisting with homework."


"Very helpful. Got a more in depth practical idea of what Year 4's are expected to do in English, very pleased I came."


"Having a copy of the goals is extremely useful and the workshops further guide in the right direction."


"Workshops are a great idea. It was good to see how the children are learning and how they are supported."


Thank you to everyone who were able to come. We hope more parents are able to make it to our next workshop.
