Welcome to Year 4's page
Mr Harris and Mrs Williamson are the adults working in Year 4 on a daily basis.
Mrs Ackroyd will work in Year 4 on a Wednesday afternoon.
This Term's theme:
Children will be thinking about what’s inside?
The main area of focus will link to our work on the Egyptians, looking at what’s inside a pyramid and what’s inside a sarcophagus?
This will also link to our work on the digestive system with what’s inside our bodies?
Have a look... What's inside
All homework is handed out on a Friday along with new weekly spellings. Maths and English should be handed in BY THE FOLLOWING WEDNESDAY. Spellings will be tested on Fridays. Children should be aiming to read to an adult for at least 10 minutes, 5 times a week.
