The class PE lessons are held on Monday and Wednesday.  Children will need to have their PE kit, for details please see our School Uniform page.


Year 4 Curriculum

Information about the subjects we teach in School can be found in our Subject Areas.

We have a fascinating curriculum to learn about. In Year 4 we will learn how the Romans lived and what they contributed to our way of life. As part of this, we will look at Binchester Roman Fort and what the Archaeologists have unearthed about the Roman soldiers who lived there.

Please see the Year 4 Parent Leaflet for details of the end of year expectations for children in Year 4.

As well as being enjoyable, reading really helps children’s writing ability and general learning.

We like to encourage children to read as much as possible, both at home and in school.

To help with the difficult task of choosing a new book, we have put together a list of books for each year group. 


Visit the Oxford Owl page for more book ideas and ebooks.
