Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

The teachers in our year group are Mr Jones and Miss Durber who are supported by Miss Taylor, Mrs Tarris and Mrs Gilford.

Over the course of this year, we will be focussing on helping the children to progress in all aspects of curricular and extra-curricular learning. Our aim is to show the children that what they learn in the classroom has a real world application.

The idea of establishing a growth mind-set will also be encouraged this year with the aim that children understand that making a mistake is something that they can learn from. We will also encourage our children to become independent learners so that they feel confident enough to take on new challenges to push themselves further. Our Big 5 values are at the heart of everything we do (Positivity, Bouncebackability, Knowing Your Impact, Setting HUGE Goals and Personal Responsibility). We have also established our own class charter that is to be followed to ensure a happy and productive learning environment is maintained.

We are all looking forward to a year of hard work, exciting learning experiences and each child reaching their full potential.

Mr Jones – Wonder (RJ Palacio)

August Pullman has been homeschooled due to some complicated health issues related to a dramatic cranio-facial abnormality and the rigorous surgery schedule that comes with it. But by the time August turns ten, his parents are beginning to think about the big picture a.k.a. long-term. They have realised that Auggie not only needs to learn more than his mom can teach him, but he also needs to learn to navigate a world that isn’t always kind to those who are different. Enter: middle school.

We hope that you find the information that we have shared on our class page useful, but if you have any questions or would like to speak to a member of our team, please email and a Year 4 teacher will be in touch!
