Mrs Ward, Mrs Penberthy and Mr McLeod

welcome to YEAR 4 ...

Welcome to Year 4. This class is made up of engaged, enthusiastic and confident learners.  Mrs Ward works hard to encourage all of the children to work as part of a team and to develop a resilient attitude towards their learning.

The children work together to help and support one another to make the right choices and deepen their understanding.  They welcome a challenge and understand the importance of showing a positive attitude as well as taking responsibility for their own  learning. They understand that they can learn by their mistakes and it is okay to not know, but not okay to not try.

Mrs Penberthy and Mr Mc Leod works with individual children and small groups to provide the support they need to overcome challenges and secure their understanding.

The children know they will all succeed with their positive attitude and if they continue to make the right 'Choices'.

C - Caring and Kind H - Honest and Respectful O - Organised I - Imaginative C - Confident E - Enthusiastic S - Safe and Responsible

The word-list for years 3 and 4 is statutory. The lists are a mixture of words pupils frequently use in their writing and those which they often misspell. Some of the listed words may be thought of as quite challenging, but the 100 words in each list can easily be taught within the four years of key stage 2 alongside other words that teachers consider appropriate.   


Year 4 - Creative Curriculum and Visits in the Spring Term
Hartlepool Power Station - David Bennett will be coming into school in the Spring Term to work with the children. This will be an enterprise day involving building bridges over the River Tyne.
The children will be visiting the Wetland Centre, in Washington to complete Science activities regarding living things and their habitats.

Our topic in Year 4 has been all about Rivers. We went on an educational visit to the Teesmouth field centre where we got to learn lots of interesting facts about rivers, explore the beach and even got to visit the River Tees. The children were very excited to travel across the Transporter bridge.

Working together in groups the children even had a go at creating there very own Transporter bridges. They look amazing!
