Our learning

The children have really settled well into the routines and expectations of Year four and are producing some fantastic work.


‘The wolves in the walls’ will be our class text for this half term. We will be exploring lots of different aspects of reading and writing through this text. This term we will be re-telling a part of the story using expanded noun phrases, a range of fronted adverbials, clear paragraphs, conjunctions and direct speech in our work.


In maths we will be working multiplication and division. We will be exploring different mental strategies to work questions out. Also, we will be using different written methods.


This term our topic is a science based topic and we will be learning all about sound. We will look at different sounds and vibrations which make the sounds. We will also be exploring the pitch of a sound and the volume of a sound.


Entering another term of Music with Mr Bergin. We are looking forward to learning lots more songs on the ukulele.

PSHE Miss Mallalieu will be teaching PSHE this term. We will be learning about individual liberty and the acceptance of different faiths and beliefs.

Forest school/Outdoor learning. Mrs Schofield will be teaching forest school this year.

PE kits

PE for Year 4 will again be held on a Wednesday and a Friday. Please can you make sure that your child has their PE kit on this day. To remind you school PE kits are red t-shirts, navy blue shorts or jogging bottoms and a pair of pumps. If children have attended a club during the week it is important that their PE kit is returned on a Wednesday or Friday morning ready for our lesson.


Again homework will be sent home on Friday and needs to be back in school on Wednesday, please can you support your child to complete their homework and return it the following Wednesday so it can be marked.

Each week children should choose one task to complete from the topic menu stuck in their homework books. In some weeks children will be given additional maths and English tasks to complete.

Early morning reading and home reading books

Please ensure that children bring their books into school every day as we aim to hear children read on a one to one basis as much as possible. We continue to ask that you support your child at home by listening to them read and whenever possible discussing the story that they have shared with you.

Again this term we will be running early morning reading where children are invited into school on a selected day to read with a member of staff. This session starts at 8:30am so please ensure that your child arrives on time as late arrivals are very disruptive to the group.
