Year 4


Welcome to Year 4! 


Teachers in Year 4 are Miss. Farquharson and Miss Boughton, and the support staff are Mrs Jandu, Mrs. Samak and Mrs. Mahmood.

In Year 4 we are focused on striving to be the best learners we can! This year our focus is on fluency in Times Tables, love of reading and extending our vocabulary. 

Our motto is: "Making mistakes is the best way to learn" 

Home Expectations

In year 4 we encourage all our children to read with an adult daily at home for 10 minutes a night. 

Homework is usually sent on a Friday for all subjects. This can be a physical copy or online at DB Primary. 

All children in Year 4 have logins to 'Timetable Rock Stars'. We encourage our children to practice their times tables daily. The children have their own logins in their reading records. 


Our PE day this term is Monday, and we ask our children to come into school wearing their PE kits on this day. 

Spring 1 

During our World of Magic topic, Year 4 will be delving into the magical world of Harry Potter. We are incredibly lucky to be travelling to the Harry Potter Studio Tour as part of our wow day! Here we will explore and learn more about the fantastical world of Harry Potter and Hogwarts. In Literacy, they will be focusing on Playscripts which the children will write as their own interpretation of their first day at Hogwarts. After this, the children will use their cross-curricular knowledge from their science lessons to write instructionally about how Hogwarts students can create potions.  In Science, the children will be learning all about States of Matter including exciting investigations and enquiries into changing states. Year 4 will also learn the process of the water-cycle and create their own rain in a bag! During our afternoon topic work, the children will be focusing on music. The children will learn about John Williams and how he has influenced film and orchestral music. They will then use their creativity to compose rhythms and a graphic score. The children will also explore beliefs in God in RE and the artistic techniques of watercolours during art lessons.
