Year Four 2019 - 2020

Dear pupils, parents and carers,

Welcome to a new school year.

Science Topic.

This terms science topic is called ‘Animals including Humans’.  The class will study the importance of looking after our teeth. Discuss what they know about how to keep our teeth healthy.  Consider why our teeth are different shapes and understand that they have different functions.  Use evidence from their knowledge of an animal’s diet to identify which teeth belong to which animal.  Compare the teeth of a herbivore and a carnivore and consider why they are different.

Class Topic.

The class will study the Artists Frida Kahlo, L. S. Lowry and Joan Miró, three world-class painters whose techniques and subject-matter will inspire and teach the children to create their own stunning artworks. The children will learn about the lives and techniques of three very different artists, the children will paint self-portraits, urban landscapes and abstract works under their influence.

Reminders and practical information.

Pupils will receive homework for Maths and Literacy once a week, as well as their individual reading books. Please could parents continue with their good work listening to their children read and asking questions to check their understanding with regards to Mathematics, a small amount of time dedicated to reinforcing multiplication table knowledge each week is always beneficial.


Swimming takes place on a Thursday afternoon at the Aquatic Centre on Oxford Road.  Please can you ensure your child has the correct swimming kit and provide a towel.  Transport to and from the pool is provided.

Steel Pans.

Mr Yankey will be in school to teach the children steel pans on a Thursday.  The class will be split into three and each small group will get one term of steel pan tuition.


P.E is on a Monday afternoon children are to have the correct P.E kit in school. This is a white t shirt, black shorts / leggings and P.E pumps.  Furthermore could children have their kit in school every day as they may need it for other activities that happen over the week.

If there are any questions you would like answered please feel free to ask either one of us before or after school or alternatively make a an appointment at the office. 

Many thanks for all your support,

Mr Isherwood.

Year 4 teacher.
