Welcome to Year Four's web page!
Miss Nunwick is the Year Four class teacher.
Miss Watt and Miss Young are our teaching assistants.
The class is taught by Mr Carey on a Tuesday afternoon.
We aim to provide a safe, friendly and stimulating environment, where children both achieve and have fun. In Year Four, we work as a team to support each other in all we do, so that we can achieve to the best of our ability.
In Year Four we strive to have high standards and expect that children:
- Arrive promptly to school each day for 8.50am registration.
- Wear the correct uniform to school, including black shoes.
- Always try their very best with all of their work, both at school and home.
We hope you enjoy looking at our class website and seeing some of the great work that we do. If you have any questions, please speak to a member of the year four team.
Finidng Nemo! A topic looking at life under the surface of the water, fascinating creatures, amazing machines and how we can help to conserve our planet..
are all great resources to support our learning.
The Knowledge Organiser to support this topic is below.
Last term we we visited 'The Hill' at 'Ski Rossendale' to start our amazing topic 'The Himalayas' below are some photos of us having fun. It really was the best day!
All our English lessons link to our class book and our half term topic, in order to make them as stimulating as we can. We will be covering several different genres, including a diary, a narrative (story) and instructional writing.
Within our writing, we will be developing our grammar skills. We will be practicing using more descriptive language, such as adjectives, expanded noun phrases, similes and looking a different sentence types. The children will also be taught how to select different vocabulary choices and punctuation, to make their writing more imaginative and fun to read 'hooking the reader in'.
A great website to help develop skills in English can be found here.
This terms class text is; '20,000 Leagues under the sea' By Jules Verne.
We are marvelous mathematicians in Year Four. This half term we will be looking at the value of number, addition and subtraction strategies as well as how to find the perimeter of a shape. As always, we will continue to practice our times tables. Each week we practice our mental math strategies and our times tables; they are vital in improving our all round maths skills. Our 'Power Math' resources will develop our skills, we will be learning lots of new and interesting strategies- please speak to any member of our team if you have any questions.
In June 2024, Year Four will undertake a times table check. It is super important that you are regularly practising your times tables and know them inside out and upside down!
Everyone has a login for Times Table Rockstars, you should be using this regularly as part of your homework.

This half term we are continuing our work on Solids, Liquids and Gases. We will be looking at the different states, reversible and irreversible changes and the water cycle

We have a fantastic music teacher that works at St Mary's on a Monday. Over the school year children will have an opportunity to carry out different activities, with Mrs Reynolds. This half term we will be developing our performance skills. We are learning the song: 'Viking Rock!'
Here is the long term plan for Year 4. As with all long term plans there may be changes as we go through the year, but we will keep you posted about those as they occur.
Things to remember...
Wednesday is PE day. Please remember to ear the correct PE kit (white shirt, black joggers, black sweatshirt/ hoodie and black trainers- all of which should be unbranded).
Later in the half term we will be going swimming. Details will be shared nearer to the time.
Spelling words are learnt in class Friday, they need to be practiced over the coming week. We have a spelling shed account to support this (login information can be found in children's reading records).
For Maths homework we ask that children access the 'Times Tables Rockstar' website as often as possible.at least 3 times a week would be ideal. The children have their log in details in their reading diary. https://ttrockstars.com/
A learning log challenge is given on Fridays, children have two weeks to complete
the research or mini project and then to return it to school.
Reading is vital and we ask that children read daily, with an adult and record it in their reading diary.
Reading books must be in school every day.
Thank you for you support in helping year four to
'Be the best that we can be'.
