Year 4 2015 - 2016

Mrs Hunter

Miss Hunter is the teacher in this class. Mrs Wood and Mrs Evans also works in Year Four.

Year 4 is an exciting year as the children are preparing for Upper Juniors and the roles and responsibilities they will gain. In Year 4 the children are always encouraged to strive for excellence both independently and as part of a team. 

Learning Environment:

We have a safe, caring learning environment where children’s individual talents and achievements are recognised and built upon.  We have both  Numeracy and Literacy working walls and the children are encouraged to develop their independence by accessing the resources when necessary. We have three class computers and have access to 15 laptops and 15 ipads each week, enabling us to have lots of opporunities to develop our computing skills.

Literacy and Numeracy:

Literacy and Numeracy are taught daily and are often incorporated into other lessons. The activities we complete range from practical to written and they are always differentiated to cater for the different learning needs of the children. Our Literacy lessons are taught around a book such as 'Robin Hood'. We use the text to explore grammatical features and to provide us with inspiration for exploring and writing different text types.



We learn about lots of exciting topics through the Learning Challenge Curriculum, such as What were the Romans so powerful? What happens to the food we eat? and Why is the River Mersey so important to Liverpool? To enhance our learning, we aim to take part in exciting trips, such as visiting Chester, have the opportunity to learn a stringed instrument. Click on the 'Curriculum Overview' document, for more information.
