Year 4!

The Year 4 teachers would like to say a big hello to everyone viewing our first blog of the year!


Elm, Maple and Willow class have all had a fantastic start to the year. We have been learning about Romans, sound, coding, poetry and much, much more! Here are just a few things that we are really proud of…



The Year 4 classes have been really enjoying the music lessons this term. We have been learning the song ‘Mamma Mia’ by ABBA. We started by learning the lyrics and rhythms and then transitioned to using glockenspiels. Here’s a video of Katie and her very own rendition of Mamma Mia:


Black History Month

Year 4 have been learning about Marcus Rashford for Black History Month. We have learnt about how, as a child, he used to go hungry and his family could not afford food. During the COVID pandemic, he dedicated himself to helping children around the country by raising £20,000,000. We used laptops to create a piece of digital media all about Marcus. Here is the work from a child in Elm class:




Every morning, we start our day off with a reading lesson. We have already flown through one book and we are on to the next! Krindlekrax was our first book. It’s a story about a boy called Ruskin, who dreams of becoming a hero one day. In the spirit of Black History Month, our new text is a book called ‘Fly Eagle, Fly!’ (an African tale). All three classes have thoroughly enjoyed reading these two books. Why not ask your child what they can remember about the stories?




  • We have a school trip to Verulamium Museum in December (check your school payments).
  • Times tables are incredibly important in Year 4. Please ensure that your child is practicing these on a daily basis.
  • Reading at home is one of the most beneficial things that you can do for your child’s education. Remind them to hand in their orange reading record to their class teacher each morning.


All the best,

Mr Pateman, Mrs Feagan & Miss Shah.
