Select School

Year 4

Welcome to year 4 - Here are just some of the highlights of the exciting things we get up to!

Here in Year 4, our class is named after the poet, Benjamin Zephaniah.

Zephaniah poem

In Zephaniah class, we looked at one of his famous poems called, ‘The British’ which is written in the style of a recipe. We attempted to write our own in this way entitled, ‘A School’. Take a look and see:


A School (serves a lifetime)

First, mix a good amount of KS1 and KS2 together.

Add a sprinkle of reception to spice things up.

Take a handful of dedicated teachers which will allow the knowledge to flourish.


Combine helpful teaching assistants along with care and love.

Rest regularly – recommend every 6 – 8 weeks.


Blend a selection of values such as aspiration, respect and resilience.

These will help to bring out the best taste.

Add a dollop of head teacher to ensure everything is running smoothly.


Dip in some lessons such as Maths, English and Science until you get a nice, smooth texture.

You must not forget to pour in some laughter, joy and happiness too.

Mix a large quantity of playground fun to cool down the intensity as well as scrumptious school dinners at lunchtimes.


Note: All ingredients are incredibly important. You must treat everything fairly to ensure the best taste ever.
