Welcome to Year 4!

We are looking forward to working with the children and supporting their learning journeys as they progress through their time in Year 4.

In the Spring term, we will be learning about the The Anglo-Saxons and India in our topic lessons. In Science, we will be exploring Electricity and Sound. The children will continue to speak and recognise new French vocabulary through songs, games and role-play.

Please note our PE days and ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school:

4A - Monday (outdoor) and Tuesday (indoor)                      

4E – Tuesday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor) 


All PE kit must be clearly labelled and consist of:

White T-shirt, blue or black shorts, plimsolls

Track suit or sweatshirt and jogging bottoms, trainers.

Children who have their ears pierced must either remove their earrings for P.E. or must be provided with microporous tape to cover them.



This term, the children in Year 4 will participate in swimming lessons as part of the National Curriculum. 

Please note:



  • Girls must wear one piece costumes with no skirt attached (no bikinis or tankinis).
  • Boys must wear swimming trunks that are to be no longer than mid thigh with no pockets and tight to the skin.
  • If pupils need to wear full cover due to religious reasons they need to wear appropriate swimwear made from tight Lycra material (one piece).



  • All jewellery must be removed before entering poolside. This includes wristbands.
  • Children who have recently had their ears pierced must cover earrings with a head band or tape (no hooped earrings).
  • No necklaces of any sort. If jewellery cannot be removed due to religious reasons, it must be secured by tapping down or secured under rash vest



  • Our policy is that all children wear hats.



  • Any child with a verruca must wear a swimming sock or not take part in lessons.



This is set on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. The homework is fully explained on the sheet in the Homework Book and the weekly newsletter. The spelling test will be done on the Thursday of the following week. We will report the scores of your child's spelling test in their homework books or reading records. 


If you have any concerns or need to speak to your child’s teacher, please make an appointment via the office in reception. You can also email your queries about the curriculum via this email address:
