Year 4

Welcome to Year 4 - Palm


Our Year 4 Team consists of Mr Sanders and Mrs Adams in Palm class.

Mr Sanders

Hi, I am Mr Sanders and I teach Palm class. I teach a whole range of different exciting subjects and I love working with all of the different children across the school. 


Mrs Adams

Hi, I am Mrs Adams and I am a teaching assistant in Palm class until Christmas. Miss keeling will then return from her maternity leave.


Mr Ward

Hi, I am Mr Ward. I am a PPA Teacher here at Little Heath and music Subject Leader. I cover a range of subjects and particularly enjoy PE, music and art lessons. This year I will be delivering music lessons across the school. As well as music theory and appreciation, I will be teaching a range of instruments to all year groups.



P.E. Days:

All children need their PE kit in school on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Our PE kit is plain t-shirt, black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms and black pumps.                                                    



Homework is sent out on a Friday and is due to be returned on a Wednesday. All children are expected to read at home as often as they can and rehearse their times tables on times tables rockstar. Their creative homework task is set at the start of the term and teachers will set a date for this to be returned. Children chose from a variety of tasks linked to their learning that term. 



Reading Books:

The children will choose a library book on a weekly basis. The children visit the library on a Friday and will need to return the book they have and they can then choose another book                        


  • To be able to read quickly and accurately with a great understanding of the words and language used
  • To know the school values and show them consistently all around school to everyone
  • To attend school as much as possible
  • To use and be able to explain the important language in all subjects both when speaking and in our writing









Throughout the year the teacher uses teacher assessments to judge where the children are against National Curriculum objectives. Children may sit a more formal test to support the teacher judgements at different times in the year.

In year 4 there is also a Multiplication Table Check (MTC) which is completed online with all children (year 4 only) We hold a parent meeting to give more information about this. You can read more information here:
