Welcome to Year 4 at Holy Family with Mrs Snell, Miss McGhee and Mrs Leek.

We hope that during the year you will enjoy finding out about all the wonderful things we will be learning in our lessons. To keep up to date with what is happening inside our classroom follow us on twitter @HolyFamilyL8_34 and @HolyFamilyL8_DH

Come and See

Our first topic this half term is 'Comunity'. We will explore what belonging to a community means and revealing the life of the local Christian community.


In English, we are reading the classic novel 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'. Our talk for writiing will look at the features of a portal story - an adventure into another world; the icy kingdom of Narnia, followed by looking at a character with a flaw; Edmund with his love of turkish delight! 


In maths this half term, our new learning focuses on fractions, including decimal form. In order to do this we will refer to our division and multiplication skills. It is important to practise your times tables every day as by the end of Year 4 we need to know all our times tables up to 12x12 and they will definately help during this unit.

Hurray for Hollywood! - The children will be using iMovie to make their own short films.


This half term our PE day is Friday.


Children will be given homework every Monday which needs to be returned on Thursday.  In addition to this children will be expected to read each night and return their reading book to school daily.

Should you ever wish to discuss anything about your child, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 4 team in order to arrange an appointment. We will be available after school.


We look forward to working with your children this year!
