Year 4 is an exciting year as the children are preparing for Upper Juniors and the roles and responsibilities they will gain. In Year 4 the children are always encouraged to strive for excellence both independently and as part of a team. There are 2 members of staff working within Y4: Mrs Rollason and Mrs Aldridge.

Learning Environment:

We have a safe, caring learning environment where children’s individual talents and achievements are recognised and built upon.  We have both a Maths and English area and the children are encouraged to develop their independence by accessing the resources when necessary. We have one class computer and weekly access to the computer suite and iPads.

English and Maths:

English and Maths are taught daily and are often incorporated into other lessons. The activities we complete range from practical to written and they are always differentiated to cater for the different learning needs of the children. Our English lessons are taught around a book such as 'Harry Potter' and 'Oranges in No Man's Land'. We use the text to explore grammatical features and to provide us with inspiration for exploring and writing different text types.


We learn about lots of exciting topics through the Learning Challenge Curriculum, such as the Normans, the Romans, the digestive system and the study of Liverpool and different rivers. To enhance our learning, we aim to take part in exciting trips, such as Clitheroe Castle and a trip on a ferry across the River Mersey.
