Year 4 Herdwick

Anglo Saxons

Welcome to Year 4

We are a small class who are keen to learn.  As a class, we have enjoyed some great topics so far looking at the Anglo-Saxons and animals including humans in science. We have dissected owl pellets to try and work out what they have been eating.

Mrs Davison

I joined Shepherd Primary School in January 2022. As an English specialist, I have a love of creative language and of helping children to discover a sense of excitement in their reading and writing. I am an advocate of active learning and enjoy hands-on science experiments, arts, crafts and games to enhance learning.

Wellbeing

In Herdwick we work hard to support each other.  Children work in table groups and are encouraged to work together. When playing team games, we practise positive reinforcement when mistakes are made – this is all part of our Growth Mindset that we learn and put into practice.  I have an open door policy that any child having problems or worries can always pop in for a chat during break or lunch.

Times Tables Test

By the end of Year 4, the children are expected to confidently recall all of their times tables facts up to 12x12. In school, we regularly complete times tables activities to support the children in developing their fluency. At home, they can use resources such as ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ to support their recall.
