Welcome to our Year 4 webpage. We are an energetic year group that enjoy being challenged. Our class teachers are Miss Croker,Mrs Bate/Mrs Binns and Mrs Stalker. In addition to this we have the following teaching assistants Mrs Settle, Mrs Warwick, Mrs Fostekew and Mrs Buckell.
Miss Croker enjoys P.E and so do we. Our swimming pool is put to good use during the Summer term where we all have a weekly lesson. Cricket, football and tag rugby are also favourites of ours.
Each morning we have a literacy and maths lesson. These combine being taught new skills and opportunities to apply and utilise them. In addition to this we have SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) and guided reading lessons.
This term we are studying Ancient Greeks and exploring Michael Morpurgo's The Butterfly Lion in Literacy. Wednesday afternoons are very busy as we all have musical instrument lessons. We are so excited because we are all learning to become 'Rock Stars'. By the end of the year we will be able to hold our own rock concert as we are learning to play the drums, bass or electric guitar.
