Year 4

Welcome to Year 4. We are a hard working bunch who enjoy our learning. Feel free to take a look around our page and see what we’re getting up to! 

This term's topic is called “Ancient Egyptians". The class novel for the first term is The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl. 

Numeracy homework is on Monday and Wednesday. Literacy homework is on Tuesday and Thursday. Thursday's homework may also include  World Around Us, Religion or an activity uploaded to Microsoft TEAMS. Children will be expected to complete spelling activities, times tables and 20 minutes reading every night.

PE for Year 4 is on a Wednesday and Friday for Mr. McKenna’s class and Monday and Wednesday for Mr. Hurd’s class. 

Tin whistle lessons are on a Wednesday and children will learn Irish on a Thursday afternoon. 

Thank you to all parents/guardians for your support since the beginning of the school term. If you have any questions please get in touch with your child's teacher. 

 

Mr Hurd, Mr McGowan, Mr McKenna & The Year 4 team.
