Year 4 (4NB & 4BH)

Readign cafe sign

At Dovecote, we are starting a Reading Cafe in year 4. We would like to invite parents and children to join Mr Harding, Miss Birch and Mr Ebling and do some 'book tasting'. We are currently finding out when you want these cafe sessions to be held, so keep your eyes open for an invite!

Welcome Back (What's the Big Idea?)

We hope you all had a good holiday and are now all refreshed and ready for the start of this year.
During the year we will be looking at 'Big Ideas', which starts off during Autumn term with Cultures/Ambition and Environments. During the Spring term, we will be looking at Space exploration and Discovery. We finish our Summer term by looking at War, Love, Beauty, Existence, Fate and Democracy.

Educational Trips and Visits

During this year, we have several visits and trips planned, which include the Zoo, Stargazing, a theme week and Stone Age workshop.
More details regarding each of these will be provided via MarvellousMe nearer the time.


Each week, your child will have a set of words to learn and remember. Please do spend just 5 minutes a day going over their spellings with them.


Books this Year

Our focus book this term is Man on the Moon by Simon Bartram.A sumptuously illustrated treasury of Greek Myths filled with thirty-two lively tales of brave heroes, powerful gods, and terrible monsters, bound in a luxury cloth-covered hardback. Including such popular and exciting stories as Pandoras Box, The Minotaur and the Labyrinth, & Jason and the Golden Fleece 


This half term the children will have PE twice a week, both on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure they have their PE kit in on both days. With the weather – hopefully – improving there will be more opportunities for PE outside so they will need a hat on those days as well.
