Class LL

Miss Linwood is one of the Year 4 teachers, working alongside Mrs Harris. She is in charge leading Science and is looking forward to all of the exciting Science topics that will be going on around the school this year. 

In her spare time, Miss Linwood loves taking her puppy, Willow, for lots of walks and giving her lots of cuddles. She also enjoys travelling, especially to far away places with her family. 

Our Class


This year in Year 4, we are very lucky to have Mrs Lofthouse, Mr Davies and Mrs Prentice working alongside us. In addition to this Mrs Robinson, the school sports coach, will be working with us for one of our PE sessions every week. 

What we are learning about...

This half-term our topic will be ‘The Nutcracker’ - a magical tale full of adventure (and sweets!). The children will learn all about the story, the setting and characters and the music from the Nutcracker ballet. Towards the end of the topic the children make their own glove puppets which they will use in their play to perform in front of the class.  

In science we will continue with our investigations into sound. We will be making string telephones as well as musical instruments.  

In English, the children will learn how to write a play script using the story of ‘The Nutcracker’. The children will write their own version and use this for their glove puppet performance.  


In Maths we are moving away from place value and will start to look at addition and subtraction. We will continue to use speed trials to improve times table knowledge. 


In music the children will learn about orchestras, the composer Tchaikovsky and looking at different elements of the Nutcracker music. 

Things to remember ...

PE lessons are on a Tuesday and Wednesday.
