Year 4  

Rights Respecting Articles in Child Friendly Language


Hello and welcome to the Year 4 page!

 In 4G there is Mrs Garcia, in 4F there is Miss French and in 4S there is Miss Saddler. The classes are supported by Mrs Millet and Mrs Ahmed.

 Year 4 is another important yet 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 purpose and audience. By the end of the year, they should have learned all of their times tables facts (for the times tables 1 to 12).

What we are learning this term


In the Autumn term, we will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks and the Romans as part of our ‘We are Historians’ topic.


In English, we will be looking at a selection of Greek myths and reading the texts such and ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’, King Midas and the Golden Touch’ and ‘Perseus and Medusa’. 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 place value including rounding and negative numbers, measurement (length and perimeter), addition and subtraction, multiplication and division.

How you can help at home  

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. Please record any reading at home in your child’s reading diary.



Important Dates

Year 4 will be taking part in a Green workshop on Monday 16th September. We will also be visiting the London Mithraeum in November- more information to follow.
