Hi Year 4 families!

Welcome to our year group page. Visit this page to keep up to date with everything that is happening in year 4.


PE

Monday - Outdoor PE. We will be playing badminton/tennis and rounders. 
Thursday - Indoor PE. We will be working on gymnastics, using a range of apparatus.
Children should attend school wearing PE kit on Monday and Thursday. Full details of our kit are available on the website.

Outdoor Learning

Year 4 will continue to have Outdoor Learning on Tuesdays. As our eco-garden is currently having an exciting redevelopment, this may take place on the field, at the beach or within our local area. Children will need to come into school wearing suitable clothing for these sessions and may bring spare old shoes or wellingtons to change into. Pull on waterproof pants can be worn over clothes in wet weather.

Summer term curriculum overview

Our next English text is Tom’s Midnight Garden by Phillipa Pierce. Later in the year we will read The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.

During June, year 4 children will complete the national multiplication tables check. Further information regarding this assessment is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/multiplication-tables-check-information-for-parents


In Come and See Religious Education Lessons we will study the following topics: New life, Building bridges and God's People. In addition, we will study aspects of Islam as an additional faith.

In science we will be exploring the world of sounds.

Over the summer term we will be exploring Roman history.

For geography we will be enjoying orienteering and fieldwork within the local area.

In Design and technology we will be holding a pizza party!

For computing we will be programming using logo and then Scratch.

In our art lessons we will be sculpting gardens linked to our new text ‘Tom’s Midnight Garden’.

Our final music topic is called ‘Reflect, rewind and replay’ to consolidate our learning from previous music units this year.

In Spanish, we will work to consolidate a range of vocabulary for greetings, numbers, ages, addresses, colours and classroom items.


Spellings and homework

We love to read in year 4! Home reading books are sent home weekly on Thursday, with home reading records returned the following Monday.  Please aim to read daily and respond in your reading record. We’d also encourage you to keep up the reading for pleasure which is why children also have access to high quality class library books. Why not also visit the local library and have an explore?

In year 4, children are working to recall all times table, up to and including the 12 x table. We ask that children use Times Table Rockstars at home weekly to support their rapid recall of multiplication facts. We will also send home additional times table activities from time to time. 


Reminders

  • We aim to go outside every day for breaktimes plus our PE lessons and other activities.
  • Please send a fresh, reusable bottle of water (not juice or squash) in each day.
  • Please provide your child with a healthy snack for breaktime (preferably fruit).
  •  If your child is having school meals, they will choose from a menu in school. Our kitchen provides a full range of hot and cold meals (including deli style wraps and baguettes).


Thank you for your support. Please contact us in school if you need any more information.
