Carlton Junior and Infant School



Welcome to Year 4


Hello year four parents,

For the people who are unsure of who I am, I am Mr Owen. I will be the Year 4 teacher this year and cannot wait to help support your children in their learning journey. In Year 4, we have a great team that strive to assist your children in developing their academic and social abilities. We have two Teacher Assistants in year 4, Miss Arif and Mr Ali. The Teaching Assistants and I will be working closely together to ensure your child is being taught an extensive, engaging curriculum.

I understand that as parents you will be eager to know what your children will be getting up to inside and outside of the classroom. Therefore, this page will be an excellent way to display all our hard work throughout the academic year. The children have made a brilliant start to year 4 and I am sure they will make you proud of their achievements this year. The work produced so far has already made me proud to be their teacher. They are enthusiastic to learn and you will see this in the work they produce. Looking forward to showing this very soon, so make sure you check up on our progress.

In maths this week we have been looking at representing 4 digit numbers in a variety of ways using concrete objects. We have also been using our prior knowledge of Roman Numerals to play board games that the Romans use to play.

In science this week we have been looking at how our teeth are formed. Through experimental activities the children were allowed to sample different types of food to distinguish the impact on teeth. 

Over the 6 weeks holiday, the children have produced some excellent resources for our topic ‘Romans’. Their dedication in researching and creating these resources was excellent. Thank you for any parents who supported their children through this holiday task.

 In Guided Reading this week the children have been introduced to a new book called The Spiderwick Chronicles. They have a clear understanding of chapter one. The children have chosen a crucial character within the book and have tweeted a message impersonating their emotions and ideas. Their understanding of the new characters have been excellent. 



In year 4, we have a new interactive display called ‘Prove it to me!’ The children have been using the new display wall effectively to improve their reasoning and problem solving skills. Each week there will be different challenges for the children to accomplish. The work completed will only further improve their understanding of place value, addition and subtraction.
