Hello and welcome to Year 4. Our team includes Mrs Nickerson and Mr Vickers. Year 4’s aims for the children to develop independence, resilience and confidence; alongside nurturing their creativity to reach their full potential. This will enable them to make a positive contribution to the school and the surrounding community.

We believe enjoyment and enthusiasm to learn are key factors in every child’s journey at Park Hill Primary School. Our team is passionate about inspiring pupils to participate in extra-curricular activities and celebrating their personal achievements.

We hope your child enjoys Year 4 as much as we will. For more information, please look at our Year 4 blog.

Every morning there will be a member of staff at the door to welcome your child into school, and will be available to answer any questions or queries. If you wish to make an appointment with your child’s class teacher to discuss anything further, please contact the school office.


At Park Hill Primary School, we are passionate about the curriculum and always plan imaginative and creative lessons, with the children at the centre of every decision we make. We want the best for our children, and ensure all lessons are suitably supportive and challenging for all individuals and their needs.

We like the children to be responsible for their own learning, and support them to choose work that will challenge their understanding and extend their knowledge.

Please find our curriculum jigsaw here to see what topics we will cover over the Autumn term. Autumn Term 1


Miss Nickerson

Hello, my name is Miss Nickerson. This is my sixth year at Park Hill in my eleven years of teaching, and have experience teaching in all year groups from Year 2 to 6.

I am passionate about learning, and particularly love history and writing. I’m a bit of a grammar geek and aim to make all my pupils feel confident in writing by showing them the skills for success and help them to release their creativity.

Mr Vickers

Hello, my name is Mr Vickers.

I had 4V for a term last year when they were still 3M, and they impressed me so much I asked to keep them for an extra year!

I am really looking forward to seeing how enthusiastic the children can be about the learning opportunities we have planned for them; their willingness to throw themselves into a topic never fails to inspire me. This may involve some dressing up from time to time (I have already been into my attic to dust off my Pharaoh and caveman costumes!), and I can’t wait to see what they come up with!



Year 4 Fire Service Visit

On Friday, Year 4 were lucky enough to have a visit from the Fire Service for a talk all about fire safety. We learned lots of great tips and information, and Scarlett even got to practise a 999 call on the walkie-talkie radio. She did a great job!

Live Marking!

We are seeing a really positive impact of our approach to giving the children feedback. Not only are they improving their ability to identify successful work, they are also developing their reasoning and evaluating skills by identifying mistakes, and why and how they were made. All of this is helping us to provide opportunities for […]

Engage! Rugby Values Festival

The teams travelled over to Centre AT7 to celebrate the six values they had focussed on during their theory lessons and show off some rugby skills too! We are […]
