Welcome to the Year 4 page. This year the teachers are: Miss Saunders (4S), Miss Thomas (4T) and Mr Marshall (4M). 

In English and Maths in Year 4, we follow the New National Curriculum. We will be using exciting stimuli such as Harry Potter and Charlotte’s Web

In Science we learn about all about States of Matter, Animals (including humans), Living Things and their Habitats, Electricity and Sound. To support our learning we have lots of practical investigations.

Our topics in Year 4 are:
