Working together for a brighter future

Pupils in a lesson at Willow Tree Primary School

Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!


Find out what your child will be learning this academic year.



The adults working in Year 4 are Mr Wheeler in 4W and Mrs Jones in 4J. Both classes are supported by Mrs Emmett and Miss McRoy.



We follow a project approach; you can see further information about these on the long term plan. To support the learning taking place in these projects during the year, we will go on some fantastic trips to places like Chester to learn about Roman History and to the EUREKA children’s museum where we learn about the human body.



Reading books will be sent home every day and hearing your child read for a few minutes each evening will help with their learning and builds confidence and fluency into their reading. Asking your child questions about the book to check their understanding would also be beneficial. We will have weekly spelling and times table tests so any extra practice that can be done at home will help your child succeed. As well as this, Home Learning books will be sent home every half term with a variety of fun tasks for the children to complete.



We have weekly P.E. lessons so we recommend keeping kits in school so they are not forgotten. The P.E. kit is white t-shirt, black shorts and black trainers or pumps.


We are sure that the children will enjoy their time in Year 4 and develop in their learning. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to make an appointment with Mr Wheeler or Mrs Jones who will be happy to discuss any issues with you.
