Year 4: Mrs Duncan & Mrs Burch

Welcome to Year 4

We would like to welcome you all to year 4 and the start of a new school year! We have many exciting topics and activities planned and are looking forward to getting to know all the children. 

Mrs Duncan teaches the first part of the week (Mon-Wed) and Mrs Burch teaches the class on Thursday and Friday. 

This year we are continuing our curriculum focus with three main topics: European Mountains (Terms 1&2), Ancient Greeks and Romans (Terms 3,4 & 5) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (Term 6). 

We will be reading lots of great books this year including: The Black Dog, The Firework Maker’s Daughter and Rumblestar, the latter of which inspired great interest amongst the children last year, many of whom went onto read the other books in the series! These books will be the basis for developing both our creative and factual writing, and we will continue to focus closely on spelling and grammar. Reading and spelling practise at home will play a fundamental role in supporting your child’s progress with writing in school. Please encourage children to access Spelling Shed regularly and support your child in reading 4 times a week or more
