Year 4 curriculum

Welcome back to school and welcome to Year 4!

This half term, we will be reminding ourselves how to be together again in school as learners. Our curriculum will have lots of Reading, Writing and Maths opportunities, but our topic this term will be ‘Conflict and Resolution’. We will be finding out about what life was like for children during World War 2.

Thank you for sending in the fabulous Anderson shelters which were created over the summer holidays. They are currently displayed in the classroom.

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.

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 so that they will be prepared for this test in June.

PE lessons will take place outside. 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 Monday, to learn ready for a spelling test on Friday.

Homework will be sent home 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.
