Year 4 is an exciting place to be at St John’s. Being the oldest children in the school, we know that we are role models for the younger children and we take on lots of extra responsibilities – including being librarians, recycling monitors and PALs (playground leaders). As in previous years, we also have the chance to become members of the Worship Team or School Council, with a real opportunity to make a difference to the wider life of the school through campaigns, fundraising and putting forward the student voice. This half term we are taught by Mrs Hancock for English, Mrs Anstey for Maths and Miss Elston for all other subjects. We look forward to Mr Ronayne joining us after February half term to take on the role of full time class teacher. The class continues to be supprted by Mrs Anderson.
Our cross-curricular topics during the year will include: Romans, Fearsome Phenomena, India, Rainforests and Anglo-Saxons. As well as exploring these exciting topics through our reading and writing we enjoy creating thematic dance, music and drama as much as possible.
Throughout the year and particularly in the summer term we start preparing to take our next steps beyond St John's. The climax of the Year 4 experience is the residential visit to Leeson House, where we get the chance to enjoy lots of great outdoor activities.
