Whingate Primary School


Welcome to Year 4!


In Year 4, the children are taught by Mr Rhodes (4R) and Miss Hood (4H). Our support assistants are Miss McIver and Mrs Hall. This half-term, Mrs Varley and Mrs Gelder will teach the children in year 4 on a Wednesday afternoon. 


Our P.E days are Tuesday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor). The children can come in their P.E kit on a Thursday but should have their indoor P.E in their P.E bag ready for Tuesday.


All children now have an allocated day for their bookbag to be returned to school. Homework will always be given out on a Friday and will be expected back on a Wednesday. Children will receive their Maths Homework book with the task in, and spelling homework will be set on Spelling Shed.

Year 4 Long Term Plan

Below is our long term planning document for Year 4. It shows the wide variety of learning that will take place in year 4 this academic year.


In Literacy, our focus text will be Charlotte's Web by E.B.White. We will be using drama and talk to create persuasive pieces of writing. 

Our history work this half term will be focused around The Mayans. We will be researching what life was like then and comparing it to our life today. Our science topic will be animals including humans. We will be exploring different animals and their habitats through investigations and observations and extending our vocabulary.

The Spelling Shed

Spelling homework is now set on The Spelling Shed. Children are asked to log on each week complete 10 games to practise their spellings. If you have lost your password, ask you Miss Hood or Mr Rhodes for another copy. Click the link below to go to the website.
