Year 4 Classes

Welcome to Year 4


We love being in Buzzard class with Miss Straub and Ms Tulett.  We are looking forward to new learning, including our marvellous topics: Volcanoes, Earthquakes and Tectonic Zones; Ancient Greece, Deserts; Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings; Landscapes across the UK; The Norman Invasion – Rochester Castle!

Our love for Times Tables Rockstars has followed us into year 4 and we are continuing to try our best to become a rock hero. We are adding 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12s to our skills list and are learning these in many fun and exciting ways!

Now we are in Year 4, we are trying to be more independent and active learners.  We have been finding ways to be really independent by using resources and displays around our classroom so that we can overcome challenges on our own or with our friends. Of course, the adults are there to help us if we get really stuck!

We are really encouraging writing in Buzzards class and the children are working very hard to be able to sit on our star writer table. The table has a fancy cloth, pens, pencils, rubbers, rulers and even a special star writer glass to drink water from.


Welcome to Falcon class with Miss Hooker and Mrs Crowhurst! We are very excited about year 4 and looking forward to a busy year ahead, engaging in some fantastic learning. We are particularly excited to get stuck in to our thrilling topics! During the year Falcon class will explore volcanoes and earthquakes, be transported back to Ancient Greece and prepare for battle with the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings as well as having many other adventures. The class is full of enthusiastic learners who try their hardest, support each other as part of a team and are ready for the challenges ahead. In Falcon class we are super competitive and pride ourselves on striving to be the best we can be. We love competing on TT Rockstars every week and aiming to reach the Rock Star Leader board! 


Welcome to Kite class! Miss Sahota and Miss Pack are thrilled to begin the new school year and have lots of new and exciting topics to look forward to. As Kites, we are proud to call ourselves a team, we work together to create a calm learning environment full of positive, enthusiastic learners. This year, we will continue to work hard to write all genres of texts so that we can show off our amazing skills. Not only do we love to read but we are super competitive especially when it comes to playing Times Table Rockstars. If we’re not winning a battle, we’re not happy! Our weekly scores aren’t the only thing we like to beat, throughout the week we also compete for the chance to battle Miss Sahota every Friday to see who the true Rockstar is. Although, you’ll have to wait and see who wins!
