Welcome to the Year 4 page.
Hello children, parents and carers,
We hope that you are all keeping safe and well and enjoying your time together, best you can.
As the Easter holidays are over, we would usually be starting our new Summer term now. A strange term starting for us all. We are missing you and hope that we can all be together again soon in school.
Below is an overview of what we would normally be covering this term in school and some ideas/tips for things you can do at home so you can carry on with your learning.
Take care and stay safe,
Packs of work are available for collection at the school office – obviously whilst observing social distancing.
Your child’s pack can be collected on Tuesday 12th May: 2.00 – 3.00 (Year 4).
Wed 13th May: 12.30 – 3.30 KS2 Drop in for uncollected packs
Can you and your children find out about VE Day and why we are celebrating it this week?
Maybe you could write about how a child would have felt on VE DAY, or maybe you could draw a picture? Why don’t you try making some Union Jack Bunting together?

Hello year 4!
I hope you are all well and are enjoying spending time with your family. I have uploaded some tasks for you to complete over the coming weeks. Please don’t worry if you are unable to print any of the documents, most can be completed in your notebook. I have also attached the next term’s spellings to learn. You can complete your usual spelling activities in your notebook too and even get someone to test you at the end of each week! Also attached are some fun practical activities to keep you busy. Please do not worry if you find some of the tasks difficult, just give them a go and when we are back you can tell me how you got on!
Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

From Monday 20th April the BBC Bitesize website will be launching a free daily lesson in core subjects for ages 5-14 combined with programming. The website itself will be expanded with more ideas for lessons and activities for different age groups but there will also be a series of 20 minute lessons for different age groups and subjects every day on BBC iplayer and/or the Red Button. There will also be 10 minute podcasts created for different subjects each day. The bbc.co.uk/teach website is also useful for resources. Further information can be found below.
Design and technology (DT) prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. Creative thinking encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life. The subject encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. Through the study of design and technology they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and its impacts. Design and technology helps all children to become discriminating and informed consumers and potential innovators.
Follow the link below for some fantastic, age appropriate DT ideas to try at home with your child.
Music has an extraordinary power to bring us together, it can lift us when we feel low, energise us when we feel tired and is something we all have in common. So, to help with the rhythms and routines of your new daily life, ‘Out of the Ark’ have released seven songs, one for each day, all with challenges and activities related to each song. They will continue to add new songs and resources over the next few weeks and can be found by following the link below:
