Welcome to Year 4's webpage!
This half term we will be studying ' Living things and Habitats' in Science and our new Come and See topic will be 'People'. PE kits will be required on Monday for indoor PE and Thursday for outdoor PE. A tracksuit can be worn if it is a colder day on a Thursday.
Look out for our exciting Reading Challenge sheets in bookbags.
Take a look at what Year 4 did last year:
Y4 Celebration Mass.
The Celebration Mass for all our children in Year 4, who have received First Communion
this year as part of the With You Always programme, is on:
WEDNESDAY 12th July at 9.15 am, in the Big Hall at school. Families and catechists are all welcome. Mass should take about an hour.
The children are to come into school at the normal time, wearing their special communion clothes; boys will not wear the parish sashes.
The children will go into class as normal for registration and then be taken into the Mass by class teachers. They will sit within their class groups for the Mass.
Please ensure the children have a bag of their own clothes (not school uniform) and trainers to get changed into after the Mass; we ask that these are casual clothes that the children will be able to wear for a sports afternoon.
After the Mass, it is hoped that as many parents as possible could collect the girl’s dresses
from them in class, and take them home.
In the afternoon, weather permitting, we will have games and refreshments on the field.
If you have children in other year groups who would like to attend, this is fine. We do however ask that you please inform the Year 4 class teachers of this, so that these children can be collected from their classes before the Celebration begins.
Thank you for your assistance, as always.

River Alt and Southport Eco Centre Trip
On Friday 19th May, Year 4 visited the River Alt in Hightown and the Southport Eco Centre. Click on the title photo to see what we did there.
Well done to Emily in 4M who contacted Jeremy Corbyn about her concerns about homelessness. She received a reply from the Labour Party, thanking her for her political engagement at such a young age. A new politician in the making?
Frank Cottrell Boyce
On Thursday 26th April, Year 4 had a real treat! Earlier on in the year, we had studied Frank Cottrell Boyce's book 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again,' which was thoroughly enjoyed by all! The three classes wrote letters to invite Frank in to school. After much arranging, we found a good time for Frank to come and visit.
The children thought of lots of exciting questions, including questions about his school life and inspiration to become a writer, and how he developed his characters and plot.
As luck would have it, the Dr. Who episode for that week had been written by Frank, so we had lots of questions about that too and got lots of insider information on how Dr. Who is written. For example, Frank wasn't given a theme for his Dr.Who episode. He based it on things dear to him and took a scrapbook full of ideas to the producers for them to look at.
So- year four would really like to thank Frank for his visit, which was both informative and fun. He even danced with us!!
The Romans and Italy
In the Autumn term, we studied the European country of Italy, looking in particular at the city of Rome. We wrote guide books, studied Italian artists and researched the history of the Romans and their influence on Britain. After Christmas we had some Italian language lessons.
