WELCOME TO OUR...

YEAR FOUR

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.

OUR CURRICULUM

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

OUR TEACHERS

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!
