Year 4 (Class 8)

>> Our Mission Statement <<

Welcome to Class 8’s Page!! 

Ms Hester 

On this page you will find up to date information about current topics, information about our learning and key dates for your diary.

Summer term


Our Author in Year 4 is Louis Sachar. We really enjoyed reading Holes in the Autumn and this term we will be reading Fuzzy Mud as a class. We also have lots of other Louis Sachar books in our class library which we can enjoy.


The whole of year 4 are working really hard to learn and become more fluent in our times tables. Any extra practise which can be completed at home is greatly appreciated!


In our Science lessons this term we are revisiting electricity. 

The children will be given a range of materials and asked to generate questions and plan their own investigations. 

Come and See

In our Come and See lessons we are focusing on our current topic ‘New Life’.

We will be thinking about the ways in which we can grow to become better versions of ourselves.

History and Geography

In our Topic lessons this term we will be learning about Asia.

The children will complete a study comparing the natural and human features of a place in Asia and a place near home.


In our Art lessons this term we will be studying Textiles.

The children will decide on their own theme and then use different materials to create their own textiles pieces of work.
