Welcome to Year 4!




Welcome to our Year 4 Web Page


We hope that you have had a fantastic Easter break

and are ready for some sunshine!


  • Mrs Story (4S) and Mr Randall (4FH) will continue to be supported by Miss White and Miss Galbraith. On Wednesday afternoons, when the teachers have their planning time, both classes will be enjoying PE with Mr English and also computing sessions with Miss White. 
  • Dates - Thursday 9th May, Perlethorpe – Please complete the consent form and questionnaire when directed.

  • 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 see the blue PE t-shirts at the office.

  • 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 Tables 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 Tables Rockstars.


Here is what we'll be learning about during

the Summer term:

We have started a new topic this term called ‘Ancient Civilisations’ where we will be learning about the world’s first civilisations: ancient Sumer, ancient Egypt and the Indus Valley. In Science, we will be learning about electricity. We are reading a book to complement our history topic called ‘Secrets of a Sun King’ by Emma Carroll. 

  • In History, we have started a new topic this term called ‘Ancient Civilisations’ where we will be learning about the world’s first civilisations: ancient Sumer, ancient Egypt and the Indus Valley. Throughout this topic, we will be writing free verse poetry, instructions, stories from other countries using 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 'Secrets of the Sun King' by Emma Carroll. 
  • Maths this term, we will be learning about money, time, statistics, shapes and position and direction.
