Welcome to 4Q with Miss Quinton and Mrs McDowell
Picture 1

There are 30 children in 4Q. We are friendly, kind, helpful and are always ready to learn. We try our best at all times and share a positive mindset. We understand that effort is the key to success. Together we make a great team. We enjoy reading and we look forward to regularly achieving 100% in Strive for 5! 


We have lots of exciting topics planned this year. At the moment, the majority of our lessons are linked to the theme of our current topic, 'Traders and Raiders'.We look forward to learning about the events during AD40 - 1066. 

During the first half of the Summer term,  our learning was linked to the theme,'Potions'. We learned about states of matter, the history of potions and we created our own spells  in the hope of turning our teachers into toads!

During the second half of the Spring term, our learning was liked to the theme, 'I am Warrior'. We found out about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain. We also enjoyed a visit to Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum. 

During the first half of the Spring term, our learning was linked to the theme,  'Road Trip USA'. We found out about the states of America, the country's physical features and Native Americans.  We also found out about electricity.

During the Autumn term, our learning was linked to our previous themes, 'Misty Mountain Sierra' and 'Bottoms, Burps and Bile' . During the first half term, we enjoyed learning about different mountains and their environments. During the second half term, we found out about the human digestive system and eating healthily.

On Armistice Day, we were very lucky to welcome a member of staff from a local museum who held a remembrance assembly for year 4. We learned a lot of information about why it is important to remember and appreciate past and present soldiers.
