Year 4 2023 - 2024

Miss Doyle



Welcome to Year 4

Summer Term 1



Year 4 team: Miss Doyle, Mrs Jones, Mrs Ross, Miss Jeffreys


Welcome back to our Year 4 class page! We hope you have had a well rested break and are ready for another exciting term!

This term we will have lots of fun and we will grow together as a team! 


Our Curriculum:


This half term we will be developing our reading and writing skills through texts with a focus on Rainforests. In English our text is called 'Where the Forest meets the Sea' by Jeannie Baker . In Guided Reading we will be predicting, infering and developing our comprehension skills using the text 'Fantastically Great Women who Saved the Planet' by Kate Pankhurst.



In Maths, we will be looking at Decimals, learning about tenths and hundredths. We will also be looking at Money and Length. 

You can practise your times tables at home on Timetables Rockstar, this is really important!

Here is links to some games to practise your times tables:


In the Wider curriculum, we will be learning all about Rainforests in the world. In Science, we will be learning all about Sound. On  Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons we will have PE.


 Finally, we will be finishing our 'Appreciate' topic in My Happy Mind. We have been learning why it is so important to be appreciative and grateful towards others and our life experiences. We love to listen to what everyone in our class is grateful for. We will then move onto our next new topic which will be 'Relate' learning how we can relate to others. We will continue to add to our class toolbox with strategies to help us when looking at the Zones of Regulation.



PE is every Tuesday and Wednesday. The children will need to come in their PE kits these days.



Homework tasks will be linked to our learning in school. It should take your child about 20 minutes and it should be able to be completed independently or with some adult support. 

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



We love reading in Year 4. Children become better readers by practising reading as much as possible. We would encourage children to read with an adult or to be read to at home every day for 10 minutes. Children will bring home a levelled reading book that they can read with you. The children can also take a library book of their choice to read at home or in school. This is to encourage reading for pleasure and to help the children explore their reading!


Times Tables:

Being able to recall times tables quickly and accurately helps children to succeed in all of our Maths lessons. Please help your child at home to practise times tables as much as they can. Questions, chanting and Times Tables Rockstars are all good ways to learn.
