Year 4 - Hawthorn & Poplar Classes
Welcome to Year 4!
Class teachers: Miss Stroud and Mrs Oakman
Teaching Assistant: Miss Holewell
Additional teachers: Mr Davies (Sport), Mrs Mott (Music), Mrs Pepper (French)
In Year 4, we are keen for the children to become independent learners, and to edit and improve their work with increasing confidence as the year goes on. Children have the chance to earn their pen licence when they demonstrate consistently good handwriting, and their times tables badge for fast recall of multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.
We have a rich curriculum with many creative opportunities, for example during our Ancient Egypt topic the children create artefacts from clay and pewter, as well as a scale model mummified Pharaoh, complete with his own sarcophagus! The children also benefit from specialist teachers for several of their subjects throughout the year.
Activities that children will enjoy in Year 4 include:
- visit to Rye Nature harbour
- visit from a local fisherman
- Living History Workshop – Ancient Egypt
- visit to Hastings Museum – Roman Empire
Parent meetings will be arranged twice a year to set your child’s targets, and discuss progress. If you would like to speak to us at any other time, please feel free to pop in and see us, or put a note in your child’s home-school link book.
