Year 4 - Mrs Wear (Mrs Fisher TA)
I would like to welcome you and your children to Year 4. We are looking forward to a busy and enjoyable year. We have many opportunities planned to engage and excite the children to help them enjoy all of their learning.
Children will take part in daily Maths, English and Spelling lessons. They will also participate in RE, PE, Science and Spanish lessons throughout the week. All other subjects will be taught through our Imaginative Learning Projects. These projects allow children to develop their knowledge and skills in a creative and engaging way.
Your child will be given a reading book and a reading record for you to comment in. Mrs Fisher and I will write comments in the book to help you and your child know what they need to do to develop their reading skills. Please try to listen to your child read for 10 minutes every night and write a comment in your child’s reading record. This will really help your child to become a confident, fluent reader. I am passionate about reading and I can’t wait to share lots of stories with the children this year and help them to develop as readers.
Your child will receive homework every Friday. Please try to support your child in completing their homework and returning their book to school by the following Wednesday.
Our PE days will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and children will need to have the correct kit.
The children have settled into Year 4 really well already and I am excited to see how they grow and develop over the coming year. There are a lot of exciting challenges ahead of us, including new books to read, new friends to make and new skills to master… I look forward to you sharing in those times and I am really looking forward to getting to know you and your children this year.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to talk to me.

Year 4 have been measuring and comparing the capacities of a variety of containers. They solved problems using the information they collected.
Year 4 enjoyed ice-cream sundaes as a reward for their excellent behaviour this half term! It was nice to be able to eat them in the sunshine!
A few photos from the Fun & fitness dance workshops. The children got to show off their dance moves!
Is custard a solid, liquid or gas?
The children were challenged to work in teams to measure the perimeters of a variety of shapes. They showed excellent teamwork and they had lots of fun!
In Maths, Year 4 investigated the relationship between height and length of stride. Most groups found that the tallest children had the largest strides!
We had so much fun taking part in the Pancake race!
Year 4 enjoyed our Pancake party!
Year 4 really enjoyed our Spanish Day at Bishop Ullathorne School! The children learnt some Spanish and then they worked in groups to create presentations about a Spanish-speaking country. They had lots of fun and they enjoyed making some new friends from schools within Unity. Mrs Wear and Mrs Fisher were extremely proud of them and the way they represented St Anne's. Their behaviour was outstanding. Well done Year 4!
On Friday some of the Year 4 children had the opportunity to read to Banjo our gorgeous reading dog.
Year 4 really enjoyed reading to the Coventry City football players. They asked lots of questions too!
Today Year 4 had a visit from the Firemen from Binley Fire Station. We learned lots about Fire Safety including the "Stop, Drop and Roll!!"
Year 4 completed the Mannequin Challenge! Take a look....
The children took part in a Roman role play where they acted a scene of a play script about Boudicca and her daughters. We also had a class debate where the children took on the role of Celtic citizens who had to help Boudicca come to a decision about whether or not to fight the Romans. Finally, the children wrote their own speeches from Boudicca's perspective to rally her tribe. The speeches were very powerful and passionate!
During the Half Term holiday, Year 4 were given a creative home learning project to complete based upon our learning about the Native American Iroquois Tribe. They made Longhouses, Quivers and Medicine bags. All of the children worked really hard and did a fantastic job. Take a look at some of their work...
To celebrate the end of our "Road Trip USA" topic we had an American diner party! We had food, games and dancing!
