Year 4



We have two classes in Year 4:  In 4P, the children will be taught by Mrs Piper and in 4H, the children will be taught by Mrs Hussain.

We will be supported in our learning by our Learning Support Assistants who are: Mrs Kashif, Mrs Digby, Mrs Little and Mrs Adal.


Summer Term 2021




Our focus this term is fractions and then we will move on to decimals. Following this we will learn about money and time. Every week we will complete a Terrific Times Tables quiz to help children learn their times tables. It is expected that by the end of Year 4, almost all children can recall times tables facts to 12 x 12. 


This term our fiction focus text type is an adventure text with a purpose to entertain the audience. Our new exciting class text is Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy. This fast-paced fantasy adventure will set your imagination soaring! We will draw on the themes, vocabulary and sentence structure from the the text to then write our own epic adventure story. 

For Non-fiction, our purpose will be to inform the reader by retelling a life story in a biography. We will focus on the extraordinary life of Malala and then we will write a biography about significant people for the time of the Romans.


Using an exciting range of texts, we will continue to develop our love for reading. At home, children should read for a minimum of 10 minutes each day. They should fill in their reading records to show that they have read. Parents/Carers should sign the reading record once a week.



This term our topic is the Romans. We will look closely at the achievements of the Romans, significant people and the the way the Romans impacted Britain. 



STEM (Science)

In Science we will learn about the Electricity and Sound. We will build on our scientific enquiry skills through practical investigations. 




This term in PE we will be learning the skills for Cricket, Basketball and Athletics. Please ensure your child comes to school with the correct PE kit. This includes both plimsolls (for indoor P.E) and trainers (for outdoor P.E) in their PE bags. PE kits will be sent home every week to be washed.


PE is on a Tuesday and Thursday.
