Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Summer 2024!





Our learning...


This term, Year 4 will be looking at a variety of themes including the Stone Age.


In maths, we will ensure that our knowledge of times tables are secure for rapid recall in any order in preparation for the national check in June.  We will also be learning about shape, position and direction, statistics, money and time.  It would be really helpful if you could practise telling the time at home, on both analogue and digital formats.




In English, we will begin by looking at  recounts, persuasive writing and instructions.


We will be learning about sound and then animals including humans.  Be prepared to brush up on the names of bones and muscles in the human body!  We also look forward to our trip to the STEM centre which centres around scientific experiments!


RE this term endeavours to answer the question  "Why is there so much diversity in the denominations of Christianity?" as well as "What does sacrifice mean?".


In geography, we will be looking at the differences between villages and cities and wondering the reasons why people chose to live in either of these types of place.


History, of course all centres around the Stone Age.  We will investigate what their homes, lives and food was like and look at the differences between us and them.  We will also be finding out how we know this information about the stone age, seeing as there were no photos or books at the time!




Our focus for P.E this term is a mixture of athlectic skills, as well as game skills with Mr North. This term, our P.E slots are Monday afternoon and Thursday morning. Additionally, for those who opt for it, swimming sessions will be first thing Monday morning.


If you are unable to remove earrings yourself, please do not wear them to school on P.E days.  Pupils are not permitted to wear anything in their ears for PE lessons (including taped up earrings) for health and safety reasons.   

What should you bring to school?


  1. Your Reading Record with school reading book.
  2. A jumper for those chilly days.
  3. A healthy snack for break time.
  4. Labelled uniform - much easier to return to the owner!
  5. A positive attitude – ready to learn!



Depending on the weather, suitable P.E. clothes include:

- plain white polo or t-shirt, black shorts, plimsolls/trainers for indoors.

- additional hat, gloves, extra socks and dark coloured jumper and joggers (unbranded) for outdoors.





Homework will be given out each half term and completed activities/tasks can be bought in as soon as they are done.  Tasks will link to our current topic and hopefully be an enjoyable addition to your learning!


Ongoing tasks include practising times tables and spellings, AND most importantly, reading each evening for at least 10 minutes. Each time you read, record it in your reading record books.
