Year 4 curriculum

Welcome back to Year 4 for our Spring term,

This term will take us back to WW2 where we will be learning about what life would have been like for a child in Britain during the war. We have an exciting visit from Hull People’s memorial to ignite our interest and enthusiasm. We will be hosting a VE Day party towards the end of the term so watch out for your invite!

Please encourage your child to bring their book bag every day. Three reads a week, signed by an adult, earns the title “Regular Reader” and we are aiming for 100% across both classes.

Spellings remain a focus and your child can bring their spellings home each week to learn.

An important event in Year 4 is the national Times Tables Test. All children in Year 4 are expected to know and recall all times tables up to and including 12 x 12. The test requires them to answer online questions at speed. Please help your child to learn their times tables in order for them to be prepared for this test in June.

PE lessons will take place on Tuesdays (Kinabatangan) and Mondays (Orinoco). At some point this term, your child will take part in a series of gymnastic lessons led by a gymnastics coach at Launch Pad Trampoline on Hawthorn Avenue (Please see the calendar section of the website for these dates).

Homework will be set at the beginning of each half term and we look forward to a creative response to the tasks. We have already received some fabulous holiday homework challenges and look forward to seeing more of these wonderful creations. Well done to everyone for their hard work on these!

Thank you for your continued support
