Year 4

Welcome to Autumn Term in Year 4!

We are looking forward to getting to know you and working together so that we have an exciting and productive year.

Our History topic for the Autumn half term is Ancient Greece. In this topic, we will be learning all about the Greeks and all of their inventions that impact us today.

Our first Science topic is ‘Sound’ were we will learn all about how sound travels and how the ear works.

Our English lessons will be book based and focus on developing the children’s spelling, punctuation and grammar skills.

In maths, we will cover the following units:

  • Number & place value
  • Addition, subtraction
  • Measurement
  • Multiplication and Division

Both classes will be going swimming on a Wednesday. Children will need to have trunks or a swimming costume on under their uniform and a towel in a plastic bag. All clothes should be labelled and no jewellery worn on these days. Googles are not permitted.

In Year 4, our Pick ‘n’ Mix homework has been sent out. Please add photos of your child’s work to their dojo portfolio. Continue to read and practise spellings every day. Children will have a username and password for Times tables Rock Stars. This is online and should be used regularly to practise times tables. There will be a spelling test and times tables test every Friday.

Reading books and diaries need to be in school every Friday. We will be checking that you have read at home, every day that week, and awarding stickers on your chart towards earning a special reading badge.
