The year 4 teachers are Mr Czartowski and Mrs Gallagher.
Mr Czartowski's class is 4 Ouse and Mrs Gallagher's class is 4 Calder.
In year 4 the children will have weekly spellings tests (tests will take place on the Monday of each week, new spellings will also be issued on the same day).
Each child will also receive homework that should be completed and returned to their class teacher. Sometimes this can be short focused tasks or a longer project. Homework will be normally issued on a Monday to be returned to school by the Friday of the same week.

Year 4 Science - Living Things
How many and which invertebrates can you spot in these pictures?
These were all found in our wildlife area when we went on an invertebrates hunt.
In year 4 the children will be taken swimming on Friday afternoons.
For each swimming session your child will require the appropriate kit, for girls the ideal swimwear is a one piece bathing suit and for boys above the knees swimwear.No jewellery should be worn for swimming sessions - it cannot be simply covered up. Your child should also have a towel and a bag to carry all of their things.
Some of the topics studied during the summer term will be:
Science: Famous scientists and their work
DT: Levers and linkages
Art:One picture project
Computing: E-mails and e-safety
Reading is an important skill that we will continue to develop in year 4. Both of the classrooms have an inviting reading area for the children to engage with their reading books in.
