Meet the Team

Mrs K Atkinson


Miss J Whittam

Teaching Assistant

Welcome to Year 4!

Welcome to Year Four! Within class, we have an amazing adult who also teaches us called Miss Whittam. We are a class of 26 unique and wonderful children who enjoy learning new things together and working with each other although we can also work well independently. When learning, we love to do this in a variety of ways and we love to learn outdoors. Football is always a popular game for play time and many children love to get involved. Once a week, we learn PE skills with Coach Cory and enjoy ICT with Mrs Stinchon. In Year 4, we learn to become good thinkers, be curious about our learning and explain our thinking. We learn to become more independent and to try out our ideas. When writing, we work on a neat, legible style that is joined so that we are given the privilege to write in pen.

Please remember to look at our web pages and Facebook so that you can keep up-to-date with our fabulous learning. Below, you will find our Bucket List as well as our Booket List and other important information for this year.

Please feel free to arrange a meeting with me if you have any questions or concerns.

Spelling: This will be set in their Homework Book and will contain 10 words to learn every week. This will be set each Wednesday and tested the following Wednesday. Children will be asked to write them in sentences.

Maths: Please practise times tables with your child as they are vital. There will be a times table test at the end of year. In order to succeed, all Year 4 children need to know all of their times tables and division facts up to 12 x 12. Your child should already be able to rapidly recall their 3x, 4x and 8x tables and the related division facts so I would appreciate it very much if you could practise these if you know that your child does not know them yet. This will also be set in their Homework Book but this will be on a Friday although the maths homework is due in on a Thursday. Children will have one week to complete their homework. Please use TTRockstars for times table practise during the week. If your child has forgotten theirs, please ask.

Reading: As the children read in school on a daily basis, they need to bring their reading book in every day. Please continue to hear your child read and ask them questions about the books that they are reading in order to develop their understanding and find evidence in the text. Children can note the books they read on Seesaw. Please share your child’s reading with us on Seesaw and remember that you can access the Accelerated Reader quizzes at home as they may not have the same number of opportunities to complete them in school. If your child needs extra reading materials, please use books that they have at home, the library or those that they used when learning from home.

Year 4 Topics and Bucket List Activities



Water: Please ensure that your child has a bottle of water every day, labelled with their name, to keep them hydrated throughout the day and to drink with their lunch. We are no longer able to provide the children with cups from school.

Snack: They can bring in a healthy afternoon snack, which must be kept in their coat pocket or book bag.

Packed Lunch: Please place this in a wipeable small lunch bag or plastic box. Year 4 have their own shelf to store these. Unfortunately access to lunch bags/boxes is only permitted at lunch time.

P.E kits: Please ensure that your child’s PE kit is in school. It will be stored on their peg and will be sent home to be washed at the end of every half-term. If it requires washing prior to this, please ensure that it is in school on a Monday so that it can remain in school for the entire week.

Forest School: Please bring waterproof clothing and wellies on their Forest School dates. This could be a waterproof all-in-one suit or separate waterproof trousers and coat. This will make it easier for the children to put on over their school uniform and mean that they will not need to get changed in school.
