Year 4

Welcome to Year 4


Class teacher: Mrs Waldron

Teaching assistants: Mrs Hann, Mrs Iles and Mrs Genner

Year 4 is taught by Mrs Waldron and Mrs Hann supports us with our learning.


Below is a link to our Maths home learning. This is updated weekly so you can complete new tasks each day.

The package contains five lessons per week. Each lesson has a video introduction and activity to complete.

Week beginning Monday 30th March 2020

For this week, not all teachers will be providing work like this due to different demands. After Easter, all teachers will have provided plans and work. Note there will be no work set for the planned two week Easter holiday. I will resume this on the Monday 20th April. Feel free to continue with any of the home learning all ready set.

After a very wet half term holiday, Year 4 have had an exciting start to the second half of the spring term. Firstly, we dissected Roman and Viking poo to find out what they ate. Then we made pancakes and had to write instructions on how to make a pancake. In R.E. we learnt why we have Pancake Day.

Year 4 had a fantastic day out to Bristol’s Wild Place Project last Thursday. In the morning, we explored the park and saw some amazing animals. In the afternoon, we took part in our workshop ‘BEAR your teeth’. We saw skulls of animals and discussed why they have different teeth. We sorted different food chains and this linked to why it is so important that we conserve our animals and their habitats.

Year 4 have had such a busy term. We rounded off our English with a trip on the Polar Express. Dressed in our pyjamas, we drank velvety warm hot chocolate with soft marshmallows and played games. However, we still had to make a note of what we could see out the windows to help us with our writing later in the week. On the last day of term we are watching the Polar Express film.


We would like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and New Year and look forward to telling you all about our learning next term.

Before we climbed up Pen y fan Mr Smith came in to visit tell us all about what a mountaineer needs to climb up a mountain. We asked fantastic questions and really enjoyed learning new information.


Finally, the day came to climb up Pen –Y- Fan. We were so lucky to have amazing weather. The children all climbed up Corn Du first then continued across to Pen-Y fan and with the sun shinning we witnessed stunning views. Lunch was a welcomed break as we enjoyed the valley that swept below us. One of the children even spotted a red kite flying.

Our Hereford Harvest morning activities were all about ‘Everything Apple'.


We had four activities that the children completed throughout the morning.



  1. Science : Life cycle of an apple tree
  2. Art: Make a 3D apple:
  3. Comprehension quiz:
  4. Tasting apples and juicing:

Thank you to all parents to came to help and be part of an enjoyable morning.

As we continue with our mountain topic, we have started to learn about habitats in science and classifying animals. We have focused on the snow leopard and in art have successfully used charcoal and chalk to draw the face of a snow leopard.

In Science, we have been learning all about habitats and how to classify animals by using branching databases.

In PSHE, we have been learning how to work as a team in ‘getting on and falling out’. We used a ball of wool to connect to someone who we know out of school and explain why. We ended up all connected to each other.
