Year 4 2018 - 2019

Welcome to Year 4!

Welcome back after the Summer Holidays and welcome to Year Four.

Well this is going to be an exciting year. We are looking forward to all the new and interesting things that we can find out together. Take a look at the curriculum information on the class page. 

To start our year, we have our Discover term which has a history focus. Our topic theme is ‘Back in Time’. We are going to be very busy discovering about Ancient Egypt, in particular the pharaohs and their pyramids, before focusing on a local history theme, looking at Formby Village and how it and our lifestyles have changed over time. After half term we will be learning about a significant figure in Black History Week before concentrating on Roman Britain and what the Romans left behind. 

We can’t wait to get started!


Important information

  • Please see the Homework timetable for when homework is set and when it is due in.
  • Spellings can be found on the class page (some children will receive weekly spellings) and times tables will be given on a weekly basis starting next week.
  • Outdoor P.E./Games kits needed for Thursdays.
  • Swimming lessons - these begin on Wednesday. Children will be provided with a latex free swimming cap (please do not send one into school), girls - full costume, boys - speedo type trunks, not shorts. Goggles are not necessary but are allowed. Don’t forget your towels!
  • Flute - lessons begin next week and will continue all year. The children will start by recapping their recorder skills, checking that they have remembered the notes, as these are very similar to a recorder. The flutes will not be allowed home until Mrs. McArdle feels the children are ready (probably October half term). Letters about the lessons and a lease agreement will be given out this week. Please sign and return them to school as soon as possible.
  • Trips – Atkinson Museum Southport, Liverpool World Museum, Dewa Roman Experience Chester, Formby Village and Formby Beach - details to follow.

Please keep checking the class page on the website for any additions or changes. Be sure to keep checking on the website too, for examples of your children’s work and photographs of what we get up to in class. These can be found on the class page and in the gallery.

Please remember, if you have any questions or concerns or if you would like to visit our classroom, volunteer to help out or share your expertise in a particular area, you can contact us through the school office or see us at the beginning or end of the school day.

Many thanks

Mrs Binns & Mrs Ashton
