Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Teaching in Year 4 this year are Miss Ellis, Mrs Cape and Mrs Whale. We are ably assisted by Mrs Brightmore, Ms Simms, Mrs Ward and Mr James.


Children in Year 4 learn the Violin or Cello once a week with Mrs Beaumont from the Oxfordshire Music Service, on Thursday mornings. Children need to ensure they bring their instrument in each week on the appropriate day. Please note instruments cannot be stored at school between lessons.

Year 4 do outdoor PE on a Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure children have a suitable PE kit on the appropriate day.

Tudor Times

Year 4 had an amazing time at Sulgrave Manor – we got to dress up in Tudor-style clothes, act out the life of Henry VIII, write with a quill and ink and had a tour of the Manor itself. Ask one of the children what they learnt – we learnt a lot!!

Trip to Sulgrave Manor!

Homework Project

Welcome to Year 4! We would like to get to know you all a bit better, and so our first homework of the year is to prepare a presentation. This presentation can be about anything you like – your favourite hobby, your family, where you went on holiday… it’s completely up to you! The presentations should be no longer than 3-4 minutes, and you can bring along things to help you if you like, such as Powerpoints, videos, photos, props etc. The presentations need to be ready by Friday 16th September, and we will be presenting them to the class the following week.

If you have any questions, just ask.

Good luck!

– Miss Ellis, Mrs Cape and Mrs Whale
