Holistic Curriculum

  • Our Year 4 curriculum is designed to be challenging yet enjoyable, encouraging active participation and critical thinking.
  • We cover a wide range of subjects, including mathematics, English, science and our termly topics, history, geography, and creative arts.


Individualised Learning

  • Recognising that every child is unique, we tailor our teaching methods to accommodate various learning styles, ensuring no child is left behind.
  • Small class sizes enable our dedicated teachers to provide personalised attention, addressing specific needs and nurturing individual talents.


Building Strong Foundations

  • Year 4 is a pivotal year for building foundational skills in maths, reading, and writing. We focus on strengthening these core skills to prepare students for more advanced concepts in Year 5.
  • Our English lessons emphasise comprehension, vocabulary expansion, and creative expression, laying the groundwork for confident communication and writing abilities.

Encouraging Curiosity

  • We foster curiosity and a love for learning by incorporating interactive projects, experiments, and hands-on activities into our lessons.
  • Our teachers encourage questions and exploration, inspiring pupils to develop a keen interest in the world around them.

Developing Critical Thinking

  • Year 4 pupils engage in activities that promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills. They learn to analyse situations, make connections, and approach challenges with confidence.
  • Through collaborative projects and group discussions, pupils develop essential teamwork and communication skills, preparing them for collaborative learning in Year 5 and beyond.

Emotional Intelligence and Wellbeing

  • We prioritise the emotional wellbeing of our pupils, teaching them essential life skills such as empathy, resilience, and self-awareness.
  • Our Year 4 team provides a supportive environment, ensuring that every child feels safe, valued, and confident in expressing themselves.

At Hazelwood, we are committed to empowering our Year 4 students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to excel in Year 5 and beyond. Through a combination of personalised learning, engaging activities, and a supportive environment, we prepare our pupils not just academically, but also socially and emotionally, for the exciting challenges ahead. 


When our children return home every day, they are evidently fulfilled, challenged and tired, often speaking of what new opportunities lie ahead…we are thoroughly enjoying watching our children thrive at Hazelwood.
