Welcome to Year 4. Let us tell you a bit about why we are the best year group!

The teachers in the year group are: Mrs Jones, Ms Thomas and Ms Akhtar. 

Our classes are called Sri Lanka, Pakistan and India. We are lucky to have other adults to help us. They are: Ms Ogundare, Ms Stanley and Ms Robinson. All of us love visiting other countries. Mrs Jones was lucky to visit Sri Lanka when she was a child and can’t wait to tell you all about it. Ms Akhtar loves travelling and exploring different  cultures; she especially enjoyed riding an elephant in India. 

Mrs Jones has a pet rabbit called Smudge who she tries to teach tricks to but she is not very obedient. Ms Thomas loves the carnival and she likes to dance; she often celebrates her class’s achievements by dancing down the corridor. Ms Akhtar loves gardening and cooking - we all enjoy eating her tasty treats. 

Year 4 are very excited about their learning. We really like learning History and are looking forward to learning about The Romans. In Science, we love to experiment and to ask questions, we can’t wait to find out about food chains and digestion. (Hopefully there won’t be a lot of talk of poo!)

In our classrooms we love to talk, especially in our reading sessions where we discuss together a shared book and really delve deep into understanding the characters and events.  In Maths, it is very hands on and we enjoy working and talking with our friends to check our understanding. In Year 4, we know that learning our times tables is really important, we use Times Tables Rockstar and like competing with our friends who can get the fastest time. 

All of the Year 4 teachers are very creative and love art. This term we are looking forward to improving our sewing skills and making our own Roman Purses. We are looking forward to all your art-work brightening up our classrooms, they always make us smile. 

In addition to all the other fun that takes place, Year 4 will be learning guitars on a weekly basis, unfortunately this is not done around a campfire with marshmallows! We can’t wait for you to show us all your skills. The teachers are also looking forward to learning too!

At school we enjoy being active and exercising and we take part in a range of sporting activities. We enjoy learning team sports and using our ball skills. 

To help us with our learning, we practise our times tables, handwriting and spelling at home. We also complete project homework around our topics.

Have a great day!
