Happy New Year to you all! We hope you have had a fantastic Christmas holiday Read on to find out about some of the exciting learning and activities planned for our first half term in 2023!

In English, we will spend the first two weeks looking at our first Poetry unit. We will then use our detective skills to find out more about our new story book. Tying in with this text, we will be reading an information book in Guided Reading and learning lots about the same topic in Geography. There are a few clues in the pictures above. 

We have a new Art unit where we will be doing lots of drawing, painting and printing and as part of our PSHE lessons, we will be starting ‘No Outsiders’ lessons.

In Science, we will be learning all about States of Matter (solids, liquids & gases) and we are looking forward to taking you to Xplore! Science Discovery Centre in Week 2. Here we will spend lots of time exploring in the main exhibit area, enjoy a live Science show and create a Lego coding challenge.


In Maths, we are beginning with ‘Further Multiplication and Division’ where there is a focus on formal methods for multiplying and dividing larger numbers. We will then move on to look at Fractions and Decimals.  Remember to keep practising your times tables, you are doing really well! 

We have Dance on Wednesday afternoons and Gymnastics on Friday mornings so please come to school dressed in your PE kits.  

Finally, on Monday mornings (from Week 3) we will be starting the day with Guitar lessons and if you have your own guitar, you are welcome to bring it in.

Year 4 Parents:


Reading remains the priority in Year 4 and ideally we would like the children to read daily at home. They will bring home their school reading book but please encourage your child to read other books too. Click on the English tab above for lots of book ideas.

Please remind your child to keep practising their times tables. Try and fit in 10 mins each day (regular short bursts are the best way!). Click on the Maths tab for further games.

Each week their will be a homework linking to English, Maths or the Wider Curriulum and this can be found in their Homework books. There will also be a short Spelling homework.  When your child is completing their homework, please encourage them to present their work neatly.

Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday.
