Summer Term 2

Welcome back Year 4! We can’t believe we are now in our last half term of the school year! As always there is lots planned including a Year 4 Roman trip into Chester; Sports Day and a Silent Disco!

In English, we will be finishing our Chester Zoo Information Boards on ‘Tropical Rainforests’ and then we will begin our new book.  As always, you will need to use your detective skills to find out more. However, as you can see from the photographs above, we can reveal that it is set in a cave. Have you ever been inside a cave? Maybe you’ve dared to enter the bat cave at Chester Zoo! 

Our Guided Reading text links to similar themes and you may come across some very curious and exciting creatures when you read this!

Inspired by our work on the rainforest, we will be making our pop-up books in D&T and in Art, we will be starting a new unit called, ‘Journeys’ where we explore Australian Aboriginal art. We have already learnt lots of facts about the Daintree Rainforest in Australia and in Geography this term, we will be learning more about forests and rivers.

In Science and RSE, we will be learning more about the human lifecycle and caring relationships and in Computing, we will be developing our programming skills in a unit called, ‘My Very Own Game’.  In Maths, we will be learning about the following:

-Length, Mass and Volume

-Area and Perimeter


Samba lessons will continue with our ‘Music For Life’ teachers, Will and Josh, and we will have our final mini concert at the end of term. Mr Bell will be teaching Gymnastics on Friday mornings and Swimming lessons will take place on the following Wednesdays: 7th June; 21st June and 5th July.

Contacting Class Teachers

Please always feel free to come and speak to us or alternatively our emails are:



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 above 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.
