Welcome to Year 4!
Respect Relationships Reflective Responsible
A very warm welcome to year 4 from Mr Langford, Mrs Adams, Miss Shah, Miss Broderick, Mrs Burdass and Miss Locke.
Children in year 4 will be taught English and Maths in their year groups.
The three year 4 teachers are Miss Broderick, Mrs Burdass and Miss Locke.
Year 4 is an amazing time for everyone as the journey through KS2 begins and the children really develop their skills for independent learning. Throughout this year the children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including: The Stone Age to the Iron Age, We Are Great Britain and The Romans.
All of our topic work is centred around a book. Our Autumn book is Stig of the Dump. Our Spring book is The Iron Man.
All of the topics have a Creative Homework Project linked to them, which will give the children the opportunity to showcase their talents, strengths and interests. This will be given to children at the start of each half term.
Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week. Our P.E days are:
Class 1: Wednesday and Thursday
Class 2: Monday and Thursday
Class 3: Monday and Thursday
Class 4: Monday and Thursday
Class 5: Tuesday and Thursday
The more children are in school, the more they are learning. Our aim is to have children in school as much as possible. Ideally, we are aiming for at least 97% attendance.
Autumn overall attendance
Class 1: 96.8%
Class 2: 95.8%
Class 3: 96.8%
Class 4: 93.8%
Class 5: 95.6%
4R'S and SEAL

Spelling tests happen weekly on a Monday morning. Your child will perform their spelling test with their English teacher. Their weekly score is placed in their school diary, along with their new spellings.
Within the week, the children will practise their spelling pattern at least twice a week.
Their spelling list will also be posted onto ClassDojo.
Support your child with their behaviour at Broomhill Junior School by signing up to Class Dojo.
The staff at Broomhill will use ClassDojo to communicate with you. By using the app, teachers can provide your child with positive points for a variety of reasons. It also allows teachers to instantly share messages, updates and photos from the class.
You will need to receive a code from your class teacher to see all the benefits.
At Broomhill we are proud of the hard work our children put into their work. Have a look at some of our classroom displays. I am sure you will agree that they look fantastic!
