Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

2022 - 2023


Spring term 1


PE is now on Monday and Tuesday for this term. Monday is gymnastics so children will be bare foot. If for any reason, your child can’t go bare foot then please provide PE plimsoles. We are fortunate to have a cricket coach from Derbyshire Cricket Foundation teaching us every Tuesday afternoon.

Spellings and homework to be given out every Friday. Please help your child to learn their spellings.


Our topic this term is rivers and mountains. We are hoping for some good weather so that we can go to Pleasley Pit Country Park to practise our geography fieldwork skills. 







What a super start to the new school year! The children have come back in good spirits and ready to learn. I am so pleased to be working with this lovely class again. smiley

Spellings and homework are due on Friday.

PE will be Thursday afternoon.



Year 4 are being mindful with Cosmic Kids yoga.

This week, Ali from The Dog's Trust, came into school to teach us all about being safe around dogs.

Well the weather might be awful but Year 4 still have lots of fun in PE.

The Y4's really enjoyed our visit to Pleasley Country Park to hunt for minibeasts and learn about food chains. We even had time to make some wonderful crowns with natural materials.

This term we are learning all about the digestive system in our science lessons. Ask your child to name the parts of the digestive system. I'm sure you will have heard all about our experiment where we made poo!

25.03.22   Class Star of the Week 


For being unrelenting while working on fractions in Maths this week. 

Well done Lola!



In Literacy this week, we have been writing stories using our imaginations. The children have been working on skills such as; writing speech using the correct punctuation and fronted adverbials. All of the children's stories incorporated them finding a magical ring and then describing what the ring would do, where it would take them and the adventure that they would go on. The children have all made lots of progress in their writing over the past few weeks. As you can tell, we are very proud year 4 staff.

This week in Maths, we have been learning about fractions. The children have used their times table knowledge to aid them in this. Practicing TT Rockstars really helps the children throughout all of our Maths lessons.

Some brilliant home learning about fractions from Lottie!


18.3.22  Star of the week

Everyone in Year 4

For being mature and sensible during our PHSE lesson.



Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Development 


Today during our afternoon session, we spoke to the children about puberty.  The children learned about the changes that occur during puberty by watching an educational video, which depicted how both the male and female bodies will change. 


This was followed by a discussion, where the children were encouraged to ask any questions that they had.  The children learned about the different parts of the body using the correct terminology and the importance of good hygiene routines during the puberty period. 


The children demonstrated excellent knowledge throughout the session and we were incredibly proud of how mature and sensible the class were while taking part in these sensitive discussions.


Following this lesson, your child may wish to speak to you about what they have learned.  We have reminded the children to always be respectful when discussing these matters.  


We love seeing work that children have chosen to complete in their own time! Fantastic work on fronted adverbials and times tables. Well done Lavenia!


Some more fabulous work done by one of class in their own time. The children are really showing interest in our topic of the Romans.


Here is some of the fantastic work our children have produced so far about the Romans. The children are enjoying learning about the weapons and armour that the Romans used to defeat their enemies.


Our topic for this half term is called...

'I am Warrior'. 

During this topic, we are learning all about Ancient Rome and the people who lived there.  We will be exploring what life was like 2000 years ago in Rome, examining roman artefacts, learning who the Gladiators were and what life was like in the Roman army.

Do you think you'd have what it takes to be a legionaire?




Today (11/2/22), children were introduced to a fun website where they can make music using various methods including using pianos, drum kits, synthesizers. This is the website: 

Perhaps you could create your own song and share it with the rest of our class?





Take a look at this fabulous topic based home learning done by members of our class. We LOVE the positive attitudes that you are demonstrate towards your learning!

Here is some of the work that we have chosen to display about our current topic. The children have worked so hard in their learning and we have been astounded by some of the homework that children have chosen to do independently. These children have, of course, been rewarded with beks!


Our topic for this term is named...

'Misty Mountain, Winding River'.

In this topic, we will be learning all about the different geographical locations that contain mountains and rivers.  We will learn about the water cycle, different mountains from around the world, different mountain formations, features of rivers and rivers from around the world.


As part of our RE lesson, the children learned about holy communion by taste testing different breads from around the globe. As you can see, the children thoroughly enjoyed this lesson.

For doing amazing work at home on prefixes and suffixes without even being asked!


03/12/21 Class star of the Week

Harley Ba

For doing amazing work on his numeracy assessment this week.


As part of our topic, this week we have been learning about dental health. Children took disclosing tablets to highlight plaque build up and the problems associated with poor dental hygiene. After that, we looked at brushing teeth correctly in order to maintain healthy teeth.


For our topic work this week, we have been looking very, very closely at the digestive system! Can you guess which photo is which stage?


Our topic for this half term is...

'Burps, Bottoms and Bile'

In the topic, we will be learning about the digestive system. 

We are learning about how our bodies process food, the importance of our teeth and of having good oral hygiene. 

We will be doing lots of fun experiments to show the children how our food travels through the body and what happens if we don't take proper care of our teeth. laugh

Term 4. Week 2. Home learning.

02.03.21 Excellent work Paul, lots of green ticks!

02.03.21 Well done Grace, you have been busy completing your work and found time to walk the dog.

02.03.21 Excellent numeracy work Francesca!

02.03.21 Well done with your numeracy Annie, keep up the good work!




In a glass, fill 1/2 of the glass with cooking oil and 1/4 of the glass with water. Leave the other 1/4 empty.


Add a few drops of cooking oil (red works well).


Then, under adult supervision drop a fizzy tablet into the glass.


After a few seconds, the tablet will create bubbles, which will give the appearance of a lava lamp by sending air bubbles through the cooking oil.
