Welcome to Year 4 - Parent Meeting and Information for 2023-2024

Year 4 Basketball Festival - November 2023

We had a wonderful time at Braunton Academy, learning all about basketball. We practised shooting hoops, passing to other players, dribbling and even had a few games together! Thank you, Braunton Academy!

Year 4 - Ancient Egypt Day -  November 2023

We have had an amazing time as pharoahs, mummies, ancient deities and modern day egyptologists, taking part in a range of activities. We have completed code-breaking some hieroglyphs with "Howard Carter", made ancient egyptian sweets, decorated our own pectoral collars and built pyramids - and that was just the morning! In the afternoon, we mummified tomatoes! 

Year 4 Trip to Exeter Museum - November 2023

We are so proud of our Year 4s. This week, we visited Exeter Museum to further develop our knowledge on Ancient Egypt. They were very well behaved and polite to members of the museum team and they shared an incredible amount of knowledge that they had learnt with us in school. We were bowled over by how much they remembered! 


One student said, "Seeing the actual mummy they found really made me feel excited" and another has already expressed an interest in taking up Egyptology at university when they grow up.


Our hands-on learning included; mummifying a body (removing organs and preparing it for the afterlife), exploring the museum, having a guided tour of the artefacts relating to Ancient Egypt, handling artefacts with our archaeologist minds engaged and even playing an Ancient Egyptian game - Sennet!

Reading Comprehension - Autumn         


There are three levels, please choose the level that you feel suits you best (a little challenging but not too tricky)

The Ancient Egyptians



Spelling practise at home can often be challenging. Why not try using a multi-sensory approach! Try making the spellings using play dough, using coloured pens, using toys to make the shape of the letters or even during baking with flour! Rap, sing or link spellings to stories and shapes.


Supporting spelling practice




Our whole expectation is that children will read at home at least 3 times per week, this can be to an adult or independently. Below are some ideas to help support you at home with reading and questioning your child.
