Year 4

Welcome to Year 4



The teachers in Year 4 are  Mrs Oldman, Mrs Chenery and Miss Hutchinson. Supporting Year 4 are Miss Rymer and Mrs Zipfel.


We are very excited for the school year ahead. Watch this space for information about what we will be learning, class news and expectations.



Children will be given their homework on a Monday. We will expect this to be completed by the following Monday. BONUS house points for earlier hand in! 

This will usually consist of:

  • Spelling Homework
  • A Maths Activity
  • An English Activity - This will vary in its quantity.

We would also expect the children to read every day but at a minimum, 3 times in a school week for around 15 minutes is a good place to start. BONUS house points will come from reading for more than the minimum expectation each week.



Year 4 will be swimming this term.  Please find below the dates your child's class will be swimming this first half term:

12th September - 4H

19th September - 4OG

At Elm Tree, we use VIPERS skills in our reading.


I- Infer

P - Predict

E - Explain

R - Retrieve

S - Summarise

Children are asked questions based around these six skills when reading. Please find below a document you could use when reading with your child at home.
