We hope that you have all had a fantastic half term break and are ready to start our final term of the school year together. 

Mrs Crompton will teach Year 4 on Mondays and Tuesdays and Mrs Capel will teach Year 4 on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

We will alternate on Thursday afternoons for PPA time (planning, preparation and assessment time).

We have so many exciting topics this half term and we are very excited to get started!

What are we reading Sum 2.png

In Year 4, we love reading books and our current class reader is The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. 

In English lessons we will be reading an fantasy story called 'Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero' by Anne Cottringer. We will write our own fantasy stories and then go on to write a non-chronological report on a super hero.



This half term we will be learning about how to interpret charts and graphs. Then we will go on to learn about plotting coordinates, drawing 2D shapes and translating shapes too. At the end of term we will also return to how to tell the time, for further practice.


Our theme for this half term is: Local History Detectives!


History: Local Area History 

Art: Block Printing

Science: Sound

RE: Why do some people think that life is like a journey?

PSHE: No Way Through Isn't True

Computing: Making Music

Music: Stop Rewind Review

French: Holidays and Hobbies

PE: Tuesdays and Thursdays

Indoor kit: plain yellow t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps.

Outdoor kit: plain yellow t-shirt, jogging bottoms and trainers.


Remember to have the correct P.E kit in school all half term, as it will be sent home at each holiday to be washed. Long hair must be tied back for P.E lessons. If your child wears trainers with laces, please practise tying laces before bringing them into school - thank you very much.


Homework will be set weekly, consisting of short English and Maths tasks, consolidating the children's work in class that week. Homework will be set on Fridays and handed in on Wednesdays.

Spellings will be set on a Monday to be tested on the following Monday.


Please have your reading folder in school every day. It is important that you read at home at least three times per week and have your reading record signed. Adults in school try to read with children once per week. It is very important that children are reading at home in order to progress.

Useful Websites

  • BBC Bitesize - A primary school resource for children studying Key Stage 2 Maths, English and Science, featuring game activities and tests.

  • Thinkuknow - If you are 7, 8, 9 or 10, I bet you probably like to use the computer for fun. Take a look at this website to help you go on the internet in a safe way and know who to talk to if you are worried.

  • Times Table Rock Stars- this fantastic app aims to help the children become more fluent with recalling their multiplication facts, which is especially important due to the multiplication check at the end of Year 4. Children all have log in details and work is set by the teacher. Please see us if you are experiencing any difficulties.

  • Topmarks Daily Ten- short maths activities that the children in Year 4 should be familiar with.
