Year 4



The teachers in Year Four are Miss Barnett (4B), Mrs Chadwick (4C) and Miss Underwood (4U).


The teaching assistant is Mrs Heudebourck .


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 at least 10 minutes each evening for 5 evenings each 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 or sometimes read with them, ask them questions and sign their reading record each evening. 

Many thanks,

The Year Four Team.

What a busy final week of our first half term in Year 4! As well as parents evening, we have been doing drama in RE, testing in Science, presenting our Powerpoint presentations to complete our topic on the UK, and shared our wonderful creative homework projects with eachother. Please enjoy some photos below.  

This week we have been exploring the different poetic devices that poets use such as alliteration, personification and similes. We read some well-known poems and worked on our performances of them. Here are some photos of us in rehearsal! Stay tuned for some videos...

4B Class Liturgy on Black History Month

4B Class Liturgy on Black History Month 1 Here we are reenacting a story about Rosa Parks
This week, we had a visit from DHL,  teaching us all about how to be safe around trucks and other big lorries that we see increasingly around Thurrock. Did you know that a lorry is around the same height as a baby giraffe and the length of a humpback whale? 

Topic- The UK

Our Topic this term is 'The UK.' This week we have been focusing on London. We discussed what a landmark is and found out about many of the famous landmarks. In the photos we are matching a photo, to the name of the landmark, to its description. We then went away and did further research on particular landmarks such as The London Eye and Big Ben. Some of us had been to some of the most famous landmarks before- which ones have you visited?

Drama in English

In English, we used drama to create some of the settings from our Class text, 'I was a Rat!'. Look at our facial expressions- we're trying to get some of the smells in our setting across to our audience! Can you guess which of the pictures show the school, the hospital, the police station, the orphanage and the City Hall?
