Year 4

Welcome to Year 4's class page. Miss Noble is the Class Teacher and Mrs Baylie is the Teaching Assistant.




Saint Theresa of Calcutta is our class saint - she dedicated her life to serving the sick and poorest of the poor. Saint Theresa helps us understand the importance of helping the poor and vulnerable which is an important part of our Catholic Social Teaching.

'Yesterday is gone, tomorrow has not come yet, we have only today, LET US BEGIN.'


Reading is so important for the mind and brain.  In Year 4 we spend time reading individually, in lessons, and for enjoyment.  Children are encouraged to read daily with their parents, and what they read is to be logged on the Go Read app.

When children and parents log their reading on Go Read, they can earn gems and exchange these for small rewards!

Please challenge you children with V.I.P.E.R.S questions, testing them on their vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval and summary skills.

Children will receive their homework on a Thursday and they will be handed in by the following Wednesday. At the moment, the children will be writing sentences including the words from their spellings as well as making sure they understand the meanings of them. 


Children will be tested on their timetables weekly using 118 grids that are stuck in their homework books once completed. Please use purple mash- Monster Multiplication to practise your timetables. 


Every Wednesday, children will be tested on their weekly spellings.

Their new spellings will then be set the same day on Purple Mash and they will receive a Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check sheet in their homework books later on in the week.

They are to learn these spellings and their meanings and choose five to put into interesting spellings in their homework books.


Year 4 will have their P.E. lessons on Tuesday mornings (swimming) and Friday afternoons this term. 

Children are to come to school wearing their correct P.E. kit on these days.

Please see the uniform letter on the News section of the website if you need a reminder of uniform expectations.

Every day in school counts, please ensure your child attends daily unless they are poorly. Where possible, please try to make appointments outside of school time so their learning is maximised in school. If your child is going to be away from school for any reason, please phone the school office on 01562 823568.
