Year 4



Welcome to Year 4!




Welcome to our Year 4 Web Page


We hope that you have had a fantastic Christmas break

and a good start to the New Year!


  • Mrs Story (4S), Mrs Haddock and Mr Randall (4FH) will continue to be supported by Miss White and Mrs Gabreith. On Wednesday afternoons, when the teachers have their planning time, both classes will be enjoying PE with Mr English and also music sessions with Mrs Cowling. 
  • Dates - Monday 25th – Tuesday 26th March – Mount Cook Adventure Centre residential for one night – Please complete the consent form and questionnaire when directed.

    Parents’ evenings will be held later this term and dates will be confirmed nearer the time.
  • PE will continue to be on Wednesday afternoons with Mr English. If your child has a basketball or top at home, please send them in. PLEASE do not buy these items. Please send your child to school in their PE kit.  As it is cold and the children will be outside, please ensure your child wears appropriate warm clothing. Earrings are not allowed during PE lessons. Please ensure that your child removes earrings before coming to school on their PE day and long hair must be tied back.

  • Please continue to check your child’s planner regularly, so that you can see what they should be doing and sign it to acknowledge that you have read it. You can also record any home reading there. Children will have their spellings in their planners every Monday.

    Homework set will be recorded in their planners.

  • The children are given their homework on a Friday and it is due the following Thursday. The homework typically alternates between Maths and Topic/English. Sometimes the homework is to be completed online e.g. Mathletics or Times Table Rockstars – the children’s logins are at the front of their planners. Even if not assigned, please can you continue to support your child with reading, spellings on Spelling Shed and times tables on Times Table Rockstars.


Here is what we'll be learning about during

the Spring term:


  • In Geography, we will be starting our main topic, Misty Mountain, Winding River. Here, we will be learning about rivers, erosion, transportation and deposition, continuing with world rivers, aerial images, mountains, compass points, the water cycle, and soil. Throughout this topic, we will be writing diary entries, leaflets, explanations and narrative poetry using our linking English packs.
  • For reading, we are continuing to build on our vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval and summary skills (VIPERS) alongside our Fred’s Reading. Our linked study book is 'The Saga of Eric the Viking' by Terry Jones.
  • In Maths, we will be continuing our Multiplication and Division topic, and then moving on to Area, followed by Fractions and Decimals.
  • We are continuing to practise our times tables. The children will be sitting the National Year 4 Times Table check in June - more details to follow.
  • In Science, we will be learning about States of Matter. The children will learn about solids, liquids and gases and their characteristic properties.
  • In Computing, we will be learning about 'Programming a screen turtle' - 2Simple – The Collection 2Control NXT LOGO.


Throughout the year, we will keep these pages updated so you can see what we are learning about in school.
