Year 4 - Pathfinders (Mr MacDonald) and Navigator (Mr Curtis)

Welcome to year 4!


Our team this year consists of Mr MacDonald, Mr Curtis, Miss Swallow, Mrs Hepworth and Mr Wilkinson.


So far this year we have studied an exciting picture book called 'The Lost Thing' by Shaun Tan and a classic Novel by Ted Hughes - 'The Iron Man'. Our novel for the spring and summer terms is the fantastic 'Private Peaceful' by Michael Morpurgo.


This year is exciting for our year 4 cohort as it is the first year that the new times table assessment will be carried out nationally. In order to help the children prepare for this assessment, we have been learning our times tables through song and TT rockstars. 


In our project this summer we are delighted to announce that we are working in partnership with Gullivers Valley (soon to be opening near Rother Valley country park). We have planned ideas around our science topics of animals and their habitats.


Please ensure that your child is practising their reading, spelling and times tables regularly at home as well as choosing tasks from their homework menu on a weekly basis.
