Year 4 2021 - 2022
WELCOME TO THE YEAR 4 HOMEPAGE
Autumn Term – Second Half
Welcome back! The Year 4 Team hope you’ve enjoyed a well-deserved week’s break and you are feeling ready for another busy and exciting half-term!
In English, we will be starting our new book which will be revealed in Week 1! There is a small clue in the picture below! Our D&T toy project will tie in with this book too. You will also need to use your prediction skills before we reveal our exciting new text in Guided Reading - you will be taken on a magical adventure!
In Science, we will be looking at Electricity and in Geography (Topic), we will be learning all about Italy (human and physical geography). We will be continuing to learn about Christianity and Christmas in RE and our French lessons will link with the calendar and celebrations, beginning with Bonfire Night.
‘Multiplication and Division’ is our focus in Maths so continue to practise using ‘Times Table Rockstars’ and the ‘Topmarks’ games – see how many times tables you can learn this half term! Please see Year 4’s Maths Class Page (above) for the Topmarks website link and a printable blank multiplication grid.
In Computing, we will learn how to build our very own webpage to celebrate our favourite children’s books. We will also be discussing the importance of online safety.
PE lessons will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays so please come to school dressed in your PE kits. Also, remember to bring in a waterproof coat every day as we will be going outside for playtimes in almost all weathers!
On Monday afternoons (from Week 2), we will be continuing with our Guitar lessons with Jack. At the beginning of December, we look forward to performing to parents and grandparents either through a mini concert in the hall or we will record the children and send the film link through email.

NumBots is an online game and playing little and often will significantly improve your understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts.
Use the same login details for ‘Times Table Rockstars’ to access NumBots.
1. Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and subtraction so it features more diagrams, shapes and question styles.
2. Challenge Mode – the emphasis is more on speed of recall of key facts, like number bonds to 10, doubling small numbers or adding & taking away in your head.
