Welcome to Year 4!
Welcome to our new Year 4 pupils! The staff are really looking forward to teaching and learning with you this coming year!
The staff in Year 4 are as follows:

We have got some exciting topics and activities planned for you this year! Our new topic is 'Europe' and will see us investigating famous landmarks, people, technology and food. It is a great topic to start with as it links to many of our other subjects such as Maths, Literacy, Art, Geography, Languages, R.E., Science, History and, of course, Geography!
Below are the current Medium Term Plan (what we will be studying during the Autumn & Spring term) and the Long Term Plan (an overview of all the learning that will take place during Year 4).

The Daily Mile
Year 4 have now commenced the Daily Mile, an initiative which encourages children to adopt a healthy lifestyle. By participating in ten minutes of exercise every afternoon, the pupils are improving their fitness whilst setting themselves a target of improving the distance that they can cover each day. The pupils will perform a bleep test at the beginning of term and will perform a second one at the end of term so that they can measure their improvement.
