Year 4

Year Four

Mr Smith (4B) and Mrs Robery (4Y) are supported by Miss Mbuku and Mrs Barej. Mr Browne is a trainee teacher.


At St. Helen’s we are committed to developing the whole child through a broad and balanced curriculum. We ensure that we cover all areas of the National Curriculum.


Supporting Learning at Home

We recognise the extremely important role that parents play in their child’s education. We want to work in partnership to help parents develop their skills supporting their child’s learning at home. If parents would like any support with developing home learning please see Mr Smith or Mrs Robery.

Every week we change the children’s home reading books, as well as sending home spellings and homework for the children to learn and complete.

Year Four Expectations

The children in Year Four are assessed against the Target Tracker bands to ensure all children are making good progress.

The end of year Four expectation is a 4S.      


Children are given targets to move their learning forward.

For a child to be scored as Secure at the end of the year it is expected that children have achieved at least 80% of these statements.

News and Photos

20 children visited St Joachim’s and took part in the Moral Maze thinking about everyday morale issues and deciding what they would do in those cases.


4Y were investigating the different habitats and organisms found around the school and pond area. They were using keys to identify and classify different plants and insects.
