Year 4 2023 - 2024

Mr Moss

Mrs Halewood


Year 4 is a great year for consolidating the learning expectations initiated last year whilst developing as individuals in terms of independence, responsibility, improved co-operative and communication skills and the ability to work collaboratively.

Over the year, we will work on developing the children’s ability to justify opinions and views, especially linked to their reading and their use of mathematical language to explain their answers.  Great effort will also be made to encourage the children to hold their pencils correctly in order to join their handwriting consistently and ultimately have pride in their work by realising the importance of presentation. Writing in pen is a big step in preparing for upper key stage 2!

Alongside these challenges are plenty of opportunities for broadening horizons, being adventurous and having new and fun experiences… such as the First Access Music Scheme which will be on Thursdays. It involves trying a variety of woodwind, brass and percussion instruments, before choosing one to learn how to play throughout the year. We are very lucky to have professional musicians from the music service, Mrs Thomas and Ms Carver, to lead the sessions and teach the children.  We will get the wonderful and inspiring chance to play alongside the Halle Orchestra at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.

There is information here on the website about what we do in year four and to let you know how you can support at home. Click on the tab above: 'Year Four Curriculum' to see what the year involves.

Make sure you also keep an eye on Class Dojo for daily/ weekly updates.

Kind regards,

Mr Moss
