Year 4


Welcome to our Year 4 class page.

Year 3/4 Show – ‘Treachery at Traitor’s Quay – Tuesday 26th March (2:00pm and 6:00pm)

As you know, we are currently rehearsing for our joint production of ‘Treachery at Traitor’s Quay’.

We are still planning to do two performances – one in the afternoon and one in the evening to allow as many people to see the show as possible.

However, both performances will now be taking place on Tuesday 26th March; one at 2:00pm and again at 6:00pm.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the change, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we are no longer able to do the performance on Wednesday evening. We are writing to inform you of the change to allow as much time as possible.

The children are working incredibly hard on their performances and it would be a shame if they were only able to perform once. We hope you understand and thank you for your co-operation.

Please do not hesitate to ask one of us should you have any questions/queries.

We understand that some parents have work commitments during the day which is why we have scheduled an evening performance as well. The children are excited, as are we, to perform this show for you. The children with speaking roles will be given a script to take home this week so they are able to learn their lines. We will be practising singing and performing in school to prepare for our performances.

Children have been given their costume letters which details the clothing/costumes they will need for the show.

No tickets are required but as both classes are performing, we kindly ask that you attend just one performance to allow as many parents, family members etc. the opportunity to watch the show.


Spellings will be added to the downloads section, children also have their own copy that they have been provided with to take home.

Children will now be tested on different times tables on a weekly and will need to now learn all their timestables this year. We will now be practicing the times table check weekly in school each Thursday and Friday in preparation for their tests this academic year. Practicing this will also be the children’s weekly Edshed maths homework.  Children can also access this website using the following link  to practise times tables;

I have uploaded some information in the downloads section below which provides some further guidance on the multiplication check. If you require any further information please contact me via the class email
