Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

The teachers in Year 4 are Miss Barnett, Miss Nixon and Miss Underwood. We are supported by Mrs Huedebourk.

In Year 4 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 up to 5 evenings per week will be expected as part of your child's weekly homework. Children can choose a school reading book, a library book, or a book from home. In Year 4, it is important to do a mixture of independent reading and reading with an adult and for your child to independently record their opinions about the book in their Reading Record. 

 

Many thanks,

The Year Four Team.
