- About Us
Mrs Shale and Mrs Clarkson teach Year 4 with some help from the wonderful Mrs Elstob. Ensuring the children, feel safe, happy and engaged is our priority and therefore making them feel part of the Year 4 team is important. Lessons adhere to the National Curriculum but also take the lead from us and our interests as this is when the best learning occurs.
In addition to being a teacher, Mrs Shale is also responsible for maths and geography across the school and believes it is important to develop a good understanding of the world in which we live. Creating opportunities through access to maps, world news and pen-pals from other schools helps us achieve this.
Our Food Glorious Food topic after Christmas allows us to appreciate where our food comes from, understand Fair trade and learn about food miles. Did you know a banana travels, on average, 4594 miles to reach our plate? We also look at Mexico in depth and learn a little bit of Spanish too with the help of Miss Armstrong. During our history lessons, we learn about life in the past through our topics on Ancient Greeks and Ancient Romans. These link well with maths and learning Roman Numerals.
Year 4 is filled with lots of new opportunities and challenges to help us develop and become more independent as we prepare for Upper Key stage 2.
