Welcome to Willow's Class Page

Year 4 consists of 3 classes: 4AM (Mr Maniar's Class), 4AS (Ms Siddiq's Class) and 4KT/RR (Ms Teladia and Mrs Rawsthorn's Class). On our class page you will find information about our fabulous learning taking place in the term ahead as well as weekly updates. There are links to websites and platforms to support your children with their learning at home as well as a gallery of photographs to showcase our curriculum in action. If you have any questions or queries, do not hesitate to contact one of the Year 4 team.

Learning Together, Growing Together


Our core values of Endurance, Justice, Friendship, Compassion and Peace underpin all that we do.




In Art we have been mixing shades and tints with black and white paint.

In Science, we have been learning how sound travels. We made our own telephones to help us understand and explain.

Physical Education

Our PE Days are:

  • Tuesdays: Indoor PE
  • Fridays: Outdoor PE

This half term we are developing our skills in Dance and also Striking and Fielding Games.

On these days, your child may come to school in their PE kit: plain white  T shirt, black shorts or joggers and plain black trainers. A plain black hooded jacket may also be worn.

Jewellery is not permitted for safety.

Keep active: try a 5 minute workout with Joe Wicks.
