Year 4 class

Welcome to our Year 4 class page!

This week, we have seen a real improvement in our netball skills and played really well in some matches against each other. We have finished our RE unit on philosophy and have done some debating and had to make some moral decisions. We are really enjoying our class reader The Demon Headmaster and have been making some excellent predictions about what is going to happen next in the story. Everyone has worked really hard this half term and should be very proud of themselves! Have a safe and happy half term!

As the weather is getting colder and wetter, if you want to send wellies into school for play time on the field, this is absolutely fine. If not, any outdoor shoes that can get wet and muddy are fine.

Please see the curriculum newsletter for more detail on this term’s topic ‘The Stone Age’

Merit Certificate!

As we are at the end of a half term, we gave out a merit certificate. This half term, the 4B merit certificate went to Anya! Anya is a fantastic role model and has an awesome attitude towards her learning. She encourages others in the class to be brave and demonstrates a real enthusiasm and confidence towards her learning. Well done Anya, I’m so proud of you!

Homework 16.10.2020

Please practice your weekly spellings at home ready for our spelling test Monday afternoon.

Please complete this harvest themed reading comprehension. There are three levels of challenge that also include the answers so that this can be marked after completion. You can choose your level of challenge based on how confident you are feeling.
Please note, there is no need for this to be printed, you can write the answers down on a piece of paper if you do not have access to a printer. I would love to see your comprehension answers, so please send me photos of your work to our class e-mail!

Each child has a reading book that they are keeping in school and we are listening to children read as much as possible. There is also an opportunity daily for children to read quietly to themselves. If you are reading something at home that you think the rest of the class will enjoy, please get your parents to e-mail me so we can make a list of book recommendations as a class!


We will be doing PE on a Monday and Games on a Thursday.
Please come to school wearing appropriate clothing (Trainers, dark jogging bottoms, school logo PE T-shirt and sweatshirt) as we will be outside for both of these sessions. We are intending to complete a daily exercise session for approximately 10-15 minutes so it is advisable that children have a pair of trainers in school each day to change into.

Norwich Science Festival 2020

This year it is all online, which means more is free, and everyone can get involved. Have a look at what is on offer here.

As always, if you need to contact me, please e-mail our class e-mail: and I will respond during school hours and as promptly as I can.
