Welcome ToYear 4
The children will be delighted to know that Mr Sandrey and Mr Hawkes are teaching in Year 4 this academic year. Both teachers are excited to be working amongst such a fantastic cohort of children and they can’t wait to help the children continue their learning journey.
Teaming up with these lucky teachers are Mrs Shutt, who worked in Year 4 last year, and Mr Hurst who worked with the children in this year group last year. Together, the adults in Year 4 are eager to get started and our strong team will help the children excel this year.

During Summer 1, the young learners will continue to expand their skills and knowledge in a variety of fun and stimulating ways.
In Literacy, the aspiring writers will be penning a narrative using the film Jumanji as a stimulus. Following that, they will be creating a set of instructions on ‘How to catch a pheasant’ based on Danny the Champion of the World.
In Maths, we will continue our decimal learning, exploring in more detail what tenths and hundredths are. After that, our focus will be on applying their decimal learning within the context of money.
In Science, the young physicists will work alongside Dr Goedele de Clerck (an inspirational deaf scientist) to deepen their understanding of sound.
As geographers, the children will be investigating the positive and negative impacts of tourism in key honeypot sites, such as London and Bakewell, Derbyshire.
In Computing, the aspiring programmers will use inspiration from their educational visit to the National Videogame Museum to master repetition in coding.
Finally, in French, the children will further their conversational skills, focussing on place and location.
