Welcome to Year 4

Road Trip USA!


Buckle up, sunglasses on – we’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A! Flying from London Heathrow, and landing at JFK airport New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks and write your very own guide to New York City. Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions. Then make a dream catcher and your very own Indian in a cupboard to go alongside our class reader. It’s going to be a long ride, put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair – we’re off!

Our favourite Moments Throughout the Year

If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do drop into the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues

We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.

We would like to remind you that all children should have a school PE kit to change into as we will have regular lessons each week.

We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.

In Year 4 homework is vitally important for the children, as it helps to reinforce the learning that has gone on during the week.

We urge you to support and encourage your children with their homework and do let us know if the homework is too difficult or indeed too easy! 

We will provide your child with a book in which to complete homework, and stick in any sheets.  We encourage the children to keep their homework book in pristine condition, taking pride in, and celebrating, their home learning.  We do not allow children to draw on the cover of any of their books.


Spellings will be given out every Friday and a test will take place the following Friday.

In addition all children should continue to read at home, at least three times a week with an adult, and then have their reading records signed.

Children should have their reading records and reading books in school every day, but reading records will be checked by one of the Y4 team once a week.
