This year, our Year 4 Team is Mrs Leake, Mrs Hover, Miss Cobden and Mrs Jenson.  We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all in July and we hope you have had a lovely summer and are looking forward to starting Year 4!

We have been busy getting the classroom ready and planning lots of exciting new activities for your first term! 

Read on to find out a little bit about some of these activities:

In English, we will be starting our new picture book which will be revealed in the first week back! However, we can reveal that we will be learning lots about a particular animal. We will look at non-fiction books and watch film clips to learn about the brilliant charities that are helping to protect wildlife too. There are some clues in the pictures above!

Linking with this theme, we will be reading a beautifully illustrated book in Guided Reading and we will be learning about 'Living things and their habitats' in Science.  This includes looking at how environments can change and how this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.

In History and Art, we will be learning all about the ‘Ancient Greeks’.  The Ancient Greeks lived around 3,500 years ago (before the Romans) and their legacy shapes the world we live in today. 



In RE, we will be looking at how Jesus taught about God and values through the parables.

During this half term, we will be focusing on the following themes in Maths: Number and Place Value and Addition and Subtraction.  Remember to start practising your times tables, using ‘Times Table Rockstars’.  Mrs Leake will introduce you to our Times Table ladder where you can track your own progress. Please see our Maths Class Page (above) for further games and activities.

Finally, in Year 4 we have whole class ‘Music For Life’ lessons and this term we will be learning to play brass instruments! At the end of the Autumn term, we will have a mini concert to share with your parents.

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. 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.
