Year 4 – Hopper Class

Welcome to Year 4!

The year 4 class is led by Mr Pegg supported by Miss Karir. The staff have the highest expectations for the children and will be supporting them to reach their full potential.

The positive learning environments developed by the year 4 staff will encourage children to maximise their potential and to become thoughtful, independent learners.

Curriculum

In year 4, the children follow the National Curriculum. English sessions are taught through the Talk for Writing approach. Children’s reading and writing will develop through reading, analysing and responding to high quality texts.Maths sessions follow the White Rose Maths teaching sequences and progressions. Mastery of maths through practical, pictorial and abstract experiences will ensure children have the deepest understanding possible.

Our foundation subjects (geography, history, science etc) are taught through the Cornerstones curriculum. This topic themed approach ensures children cover the National Curriculum through a broad range of exciting and progressive learning activities. 

Children read for 30 minutes daily and their reading progress is tracked through the Accelerated Reader software. After reading a text that’s suitably challenging, the children take quizzes to check their understanding of the book they’ve read. The software then recommends a new, suitable book for them.

In Years 3 and 4 the learning journey continues. Pupils develop skills, the dreams and aspirations you have been developing start to come true and you grow tremendously experiencing success along the way.  Children become innovators and develop their individual learning style through our Lillington Learning behaviours.
