Healthy Heroes Week


As part of our Healthy Heroes Week, Year 4 will be visiting Llanrumney Phoenix Boxing Gym on Thursday 27th June to participate in a fun fitness session. Please see your class teacher if you do not wish your child to participate. 

Children in Year 4 have settled very well into their new classes!

So far this year, children in Year 4 have enjoyed two out-of-school visits (St. Fagan's Natural History Museum and Cardiff Castle), participated in Forest Schools and taken part in African drumming sessions! We have had a busy yet exciting start to the school year and we hope you will enjoy keeping up to date with all of the fun that we have, here on our class page!

Physical Education/Addysg Grofforol

Year 4 PE sessions will take place on a Thursday afternoon. 


During these PE sessions, children will explore a variety of striking and fielding games.


Children will need a white t-shirt, black or navy shorts/joggers/leggings and trainers. Activities will take place outside if the weather permits. 


Please ensure children have the relevant PE kit I school each Thursday to enjoy these sessions. 


Thank you



Reading is vital to a child's education and in Year 4 we reward reading with Class Dojo points, which contributes to our VIP award as well as other small rewards. Children's reading logs are checked and signed every Tuesday and Friday by Year 4 teachers, but can be changed as required. 

Thank you

These tests will take place between Wednesday 8th May and Tuesday 14th May. Please speak to you child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns regarding these tests.


Spring 2

This term pupils will be exploring Cardiff Bay and it’s surroundings, locating these on ordinate survey maps. Pupils will learn about the development of Cardiff Bay and how it has changed over time. Pupils will recognise natural and man-made features of Cardiff, and compare and contrast these to their local areas.

Pupils will be attending swimming lessons at Eastern Leisure Centre from Monday 4th March to Friday 15th March during the afternoon session. Please ensure that your child brings the correct equipment to school each day so that they can participate in this activity.

Year 4 Residential to Cardiff Bay

Spring 1

During Spring 1 pupils will be discovering how children in Wales were affected by World War Two. We will learn about why World War 2 started, why children were evacuated, what happened during the Blitz and what rationing involved.

World War Two Day

On Wednesday 29th January, Year 4 will have a World War II Day. We are inviting pupils to dress up in 1940s costumes and make a £1.00 contribution towards the day. We have booked for an outside agency to deliver a interactive workshop and pupils will have the opportunity to taste different recipes that would have been made from rations. 

We are sure that it will be a really enjoyable experience.
