Year 4

What a fantastic start to the year. Year 4 totally impressed me with the quality of their summer holiday projects.


Holiday Homework

 I have so enjoyed listening to the interesting things they had to say about their islands. They have presented them all sorts of different ways. Fantastic YEAR 4!!!  Keep this up and we will continue to fly……!


The children continue to bring their Home/School diary into school every day and take it home at the end. This is a super two-way link with parents and carers at home. If I need to know anything, then please write it in the diary. A record of the children’s reading will also be recorded in here along with any instructions for spellings. Children will also have a Homework book and children are expected to use these books for recording their homework.





What can parents do?

 The most important thing that parents and carers can do at home to support their child’s learning is to engage in regular reading followed by discussion about the book. Alongside this we encourage children to use the wealth of excellent activities and games on the Education City website; each child has their password and username on the inside of their home school diary. We also provide them with a password for Times Tables Rockstars Supporting your your child to play these games, will make a real difference.


Children are expected to read to an adult at home 5 times a week for ten minutes each time. They need an adult to sign their home school diary each time in order to collect their reading tokens and to be ticked off on the homework sheet. The week runs from Friday to Thursday in preparation for the Rewards Assembly on a Friday morning.



PE kit must be in school on Monday and stay in school all week. We start the year with a dance topic based on machines and inventions.


Mrs Sharman is the Year 4 Teaching Assistant. She will support children within the classroom as well as helping children in small groups and on an individual basis. Mrs L Sproule will cover my planning time on Friday afternoons.


Topic Work

Our Topic for the first term has been Islands, followed by Machines. We had a fantastic day at the Thinktank in Birmingham, the children had a fun packed, informative and ‘hands on’ day.

After Christmas Pupils will be delving into the fascinating wonders of Ancient Egypt with our Discovery topic of ‘It’s a Wrap!’ Pupils will discover the wonders of Egypt, its magnificent ancient history and some of the many mysteries that have been unearthed within more recent years. Here at Lickhill, we believe in a creative curriculum, meaning that we believe that links can be made with our discovery topic within all academic areas (where possible). Not only does this engage pupils, but it also makes their learning relevant.

Year 4 Colour

Our class colour is Green. We have been investigating how to make this colour and how we can use it in our painting.

Storm, our class pet.

Year 4 is the most fortunate class in the school as this year they are looking after Storm for the year! He is the friendliest, cuddly and lovable rabbit I have ever known. The children will take turns to care and look after him by helping to feed him, clean him out and give him lots and lots of cuddles. If you have any spare carrots or broccoli, he would love them for a treat.


Musical Instruments

This Year we have started to learn how to play the violin I am very interested to see how we all get on with this new instrument. They have already shown themselves to be very capable and are learning fast. Watch this space!

When was the first violin made?

The violin, viola, and cello were first made in the early16th century, in Italy. The earliest evidence for their existence is in paintings by Gaudenzio Ferrari from the 1530s, though Ferrari's instruments had only three strings.

Water, water!

This week the school were lucky enough to have a visit from Mr Paul Tingle from Severn Trent. He gave a very amusing assembly on the importance of saving water, which the children really enjoyed.
