Year 4  


 Hello and welcome to the Year 4 page!

Year 4 is another important and exciting year in your child’s learning. Throughout the year, they will continue to develop their writing skills through a range of high quality engaging texts. Your child will continue to write at length with a focus on enhancing the effectiveness of what they write. By the end of the year, they should have learned all of their times tables facts (for the times tables 1 to 12).  Find out what we have been up to each term by clicking the links at the bottom of this page!


The Year 4 Team

In 4H there is Miss Hamilton, in 4S there is Miss Scott and in 4G there is Miss Lewis and Mrs Nathan. Supporting us we have Ms Titre, Mrs Brown, Mrs Fatima and Mr Spears. 


What we are learning this term

In the Summer term, we will be focusing on the environment and working collaboratively to produce an appealing product using recycled materials as part of our ‘We are Innovators’ topic.

In English, we will be reading the texts ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes, a selection of stories from the ‘African Tales Collection’ and ‘Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf’ by David Almond. The children will be given the opportunity to write for a range of purposes including story writing, diary entries and newspaper reports.

 In Maths, we will be focusing on decimals, measurement (money and time), statistics and geometry  (properties of shape).

How you can help at home  

Please help your child practise their spelling homework which goes out on a Thursday.

Times tables are done in school every week. Please check your child’s answers and go over any mistakes with them each week.

Please read with your child 5 times a week; this can be done using a book from the school library or home, or using our online reading scheme: Bug Club. Please record any reading at home in your child’s reading diary.
