Year 4 Herdwick
Welcome to Year 4
We are creative and curious and enjoy learning new skills.
As a class, we have enjoyed some great topics so far looking at: the Anglo-Saxons, Europe and Ancient Egypt; sound and electricity.
We like working as a team and are proud to be our class.
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.
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.
