Hello new Year 4s and
welcome to our new class page.
Well here we are at the start of, what we hope will be, our best year yet!
It was lovely to see you at our transition mornings and get to know you a bit more too! We hope you enjoyed meeting us and feel less worried about the coming year.
Remember, we want you to enjoy coming to school and all the learning that we have planned. If you are feeling worried about anything, then please speak to us and we will try to help you
From Mrs Sehné, Mr Riley and Miss Talbot 🙂
So who are the Year 4 teachers? You will know Mrs Sehné well, but Mr Riley and Miss Talbot are new to Pikemere, so here is a little bit of information about them for those of you who couldn’t come to our transition mornings.
I’m Mr Riley and I’m excited to be teaching Year 4 at Pikemere School on Fridays.
I’ve been a teacher for a long time but more recently I’ve been delivering training to teachers in all types of primary schools across the North West.
I like words and enjoy sharing their magic through stories and poems and carefully crafted writing.
I look forward to sharing our ‘Friday’ work with you in the weeks ahead.
Things to remember in September
Your school uniform, including a named coat (when it gets colder!)

You could also bring your own pencil case with the following items in… (but you don’t need to as they will be provided!)
If you do bring in your own stationery in a pencil case, please leave it in school.
Year 4 Curriculum
So… you are probably wondering what we will be doing when we come back to school.
Well, the whole school will be looking at the same book…..
‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers.
Can you guess what the story is about?
Watch the film trailer below for some more ideas.
Can you guess why the whole school might be using the same book?
All will be revealed on Wednesday 2nd September 🙂

Year 4 Reading Book Suggestions
How many have you read already?
We know how much you love history, so in the autumn term we will be exploring the Romans and the impact they had on Great Britain.
We will be using the text ‘Escape from Pompeii’ by Christina Balit to write setting descriptions and make fact files especially about volcanoes.
We will be learning Roman numerals up to 100.
Here is a great video of a Roman numeral song-you could imagine you were a real Roman when you sing it!
