Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Welcome to Year 4, we areĀ  Elder Class.

Elder Class is taught by Miss Hartley and the children are supported by Mr Mandreit.

Our PE days are on Monday and Wednesday so the children will need to come to school in their PE kit. We will do Maths, English and Reading every day and this will include a Times Table Rock Stars daily challenge to improve tour speedy and accurate recall of their times tables.

Our Learning Challenge this term is all about the Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Normans and we will be looking at why and where they invaded, how they lived, what they believed in and how they changed Britain. We will be presenting our findings in the form of writing, debate, drama, art and DT.

Please can you ensure you read with your child every evening and they will also benefit from using the Times Table Rock Stars to learn all of their times tables facts. We will also be having tournaments and rock battles with the other class to encourage them to practise as much as they can.

It is so lovely to have the children back in school and they are doing really well. Please contact us via Class Dojo if you have any questions and we will be happy to support you as best we can.

Learning Challenge Curriculum:
