Year 4

Areas of Learning - Water, Water Everywhere.

Year 4 is a stimulating year where independence grows. High expectations enable children to take pride in their work and begin to critically assess their own writing.


Year 4 Staff


Class Teacher: Mrs Healey and Mrs Pinchin

P.E. this term is swimming and will take place on Thursday mornings. Pupils are welcome to wear their PE kits into school on Thursday for comfort and ease when changing for swimming. Homework is uploaded onto See Saw on Friday and should be completed by Wednesday.



Please help your child by discussing their topics and please do not hesitate to let us know if there is any way that you can support us within the class. Here are some of the things you can help your children with:


  • Hearing your child read is so important as this helps them to access the curriculum. Many of the children will read and record in their reading records independently however we feel that it is still important that they read to an adult. Please can you record when you have listened to them as they will not be able to change their book unless there is a comment.
  • Times tables are very important for the children to access other areas of the maths curriculum. It is very important that they build on what we are doing in school at home. This can be done through a range of interactive games which can be accessed through a computer or tablet to help improve speed of recall and confidence.


Please feel free to email the school office or myself directly if you have any questions or worries.

Summer Term


Another busy term has passed and we are already starting the summer term. We had a lovely spring term and we especially enjoyed our Mexico week, particularly our fiesta.


Our topic for the Summer term is ‘Water, Water Everywhere’. Through this topic, we will explore the water cycle, floods and the local community and it's natural resources.. We will be looking at settlements and hopefully carrying out a field trip into Tewkesbury. In science we are finding out about states of matter and electricity. Mrs Pinchin will continue to teach French and produce some more beautiful art work with the children.

We are looking forward to sunnier days, hopefully, and working towards transition into Y5.
