Year 4 Curriculum

Welcome to the Summer Term Year 4!

This term, our curriculum will continue to have lots of Reading, Writing and Maths opportunities and our topic this term will be “Vikings”. We will be immersing ourselves in the world of How to Train Your Dragon!

Our History themed topic this term is The Vikings and Anglo-Saxons. We will look at their lives at home and their adventures across the world.

Thank you for sending in your Viking shields and helmets. They will be much enjoyed on our spark day.

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.

All children in Year 4 are expected to know and recall all times tables up to and including 12 x 12. Please help your child to learn their times tables so that they will be prepared for their times tables test and Year 5.

This website can help.

PE lessons will take place outside in the first half term and inside for the second half term. Please make sure that your child has an outdoor PE kit (including suitable footwear) in school each day as we will take full advantage of good weather.

Spellings remain a focus and your child will bring their spellings home each week on Friday, to learn ready for a spelling test on the following Friday.

Homework will be posted on Teams each Friday. Please encourage your child to complete the tasks, returning them to school the following week.

Merits will be awarded each week, so keep an eye out for a special certificate coming home with your child.

Miss Williams and Mr Richards
