Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!


The Summer Term has arrived and we have lots of fun activities to look forward to! Wellbeing Wednesday will be full of outdoor activities and we will be moving onto a Geography topic: How can we live more sustainably?  


Our new class reader is a super fun fantasy story called ‘The Nothing To See Here Hotel’. We will be looking at writing in the style of an author, engaging a reader with an interesting opening, as well as re-writing events from a different perspective. 


In PE, we will be working towards a Dance Platform, which will be at The Winding Wheel in June. We will also be developing our net, wall and ball skills in Summer 1, and striking and fielding skills in Summer 2. PE lessons are now on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so your child will need to wear PE kits on both of these days. 


In Science, we are learning about plants. We will also be developing our knowledge of shadows as part of our recent ‘Light’ topic. 


This term, practicing times tables is a high priority. Who will become the best TT Rockstar Superstar?! We can already see some amazing progress in times tables knowledge from all the children who are using TT Rockstars to practice. Spelling Shed is also a great resource for practising spelling patterns and learning new words.  


Below are documents and links for your information. Please visit our curriculum area for more links to great Geography and Science websites.
