Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Year 4 are lucky to have two teachers: Miss Bloor (Monday & Tuesday) and Miss Owen (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). Our classroom is a calm and happy place where we love learning! On this page you will find information about what the children will be learning in class.

Our class books for Writing this half-term are 'Where the forest meets the sea' and '100 facts: rainforests'. The children will be writing their own zoo information board for a rainforest exhibit using all their new knowledge they will learn from the fiction and non-fiction book. 




In Guided Reading we’re studying the book called Ariki and the Island of Wonders by Nicola Davies. Ariki is an apprentice Star Walker living on Turtle Island (having washed ashore as a toddler) with her Guardian, Arohaka and her mischievous pet pig, Bad Boy.

Jesus, the Teacher – the children will learn about the Presentation in the Temple and how Jesus was born a Jew and then Baptised by his cousin, John the Baptist. The children will learn that Jesus called people to follow him and he travelled around teaching people the way to live.


Jesus, the Saviour – the children will learn that Jesus is truly God and, as man, truly human. They will know about Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and reflect on the importance of Holy Week for us.
