Year 4

"Love one another as I have loved you."

John 13:34-35

surpriseWelcome to the Year 4laugh



Sir and Mrs Sutton would like to welcome you to the Year 4 page.  We look forward to showing you all the wide variety of things that happen in our class throughout the year.


General Information


The school day begins with registration at 8.55 am and we really appreciate prompt time-keeping to get the children off to a good start. 


Reading books should be brought in daily as the children may be asked to read throughout the week. It is important that the children read to an adult each night and their diaries should be signed and a comment written to inform of their progress. We will collect reading records in as often as we can and attempt to sign them regularly. 


Spellings will be given out every day so the children can practise each night and hand them in the following day. They will then be tested on the weekly word list on a Friday.


Times tables will also be given out on a daily basis with the children expected to practise each night and hand the sheet in the next day. There will also be a weekly Friday test on these. Extra sheets are available so that you can get involved and practise with the children.


Maths and English homework will be given out during the week to reinforce work completed in class. 




PE takes place each Thursday and it is important that the children have their full kit in school for the lesson.

Keeping Safe 

During the first week back Year 4 discussed and researched e-safety and how we can keep ourselves safe on-line. The children then used iPads to create their own posters delivering a clear message about how we should behave when on-line to keep safe. 

Our School Mission 

During our 2nd week back at school we spent time reminding ourselves of our school mission statement and how important it is to daily life in school. We spent some time thinking about ways in which we can live out our mission statement and the whole school was involved in a  Mission Collective Worship.

Democracy in Action 

Well done to everyone who took part in the school council elections and put themselves forward to be a school councillor. The standard was very high this year and it was a very difficult job for the children to decide who to vote for. After listening to each candidates' manifestos all of the class went to the polling station to cast their votes. it was a close run thing. Congratulations to our two new year 4 councillors!

Anglo Saxons in Mere Tun

Year 4 recently visited the Anglo Saxon settlement of Mere Tun as part of this term's history topic. They entered fully into village life. They learnt how to defend the village using swords and shields; they went foraging in the nearby woodland; learnt how to weave  with willow to make pig pens and also how to thatch a roof. A great day was had by all despite the poor weather.
