Year 4

Summer Term 



As we begin the Summer term, I would like to thank all parents and carers for your continued support with home learning and your interest in our curriculum days (workshops). Our Summer one is coming soon!


As usual, we will be completing  English and Maths lessons during the morning sessions of our school day. Our learning in English, will be based upon the book, Where the Forest meets the Sea, by Jeannie Baker. Children will enjoy learning about rainforests and consolidate and build on their knowledge from last term when we focused on animal habitats. 

Our Maths lessons will continue to focus on fractions.  Multiplication and division knowledge will be essential as we work towards the end of our fractions topic and get closer to the statutory multiplication check.  

We have now covered ALL times tables (2-12) and pupils are expected to keep up their knowledge and build on fluency by practising regularly at home as well as completing 'Quick Maths' tests in school. 


During the afternoons, pupils will enjoy a broad and balanced curriculum, covering: Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, PE, Languages (Spanish), Music, Design Technology, PSHE and RE during the afternoons. Our new 'theme' will be be 'Rivers and Rainforests'. This topic is a continuation of our previous topic and has lovely links to our Science work 'The Water Cycle'. Please see a copy of our knowledge organiser which is displayed on Dojo, in the classroom window and also on this class page.

Our singing lessons which enhance our music curriculum will continue to be led by Mr Chesterman on Thursday morning.



Children will continue to have tasks to complete each week on Century (online platform) as well as regular reading, TT Rockstar practise and spellings to learn.  All homework tasks will be set on a Friday and due the following Friday- this includes Century task, reading and spellings. If your child is struggling with a piece of homework, please encourage them to ask us for support. Children should also be reading every night – this may be from their banded reading book or a library book. The completion of homework will be monitored.

I will be running a homework club during break time on a Friday morning for children to complete any homework they can't or haven't completed at home.


Statutory Testing:

As you know from previous correspondence, children in Year 4 undergo a times table check. This is completed in June nationally, across all primary schools. By the summer term of Year 4, children are expected to have a secure knowledge and instant recall of multiplication facts up to 12 times tables.

It is so important to practice times tables with your child and encourage them to log in to Time Tables Rockstars. If your child cannot access TTRS at home please let one of us know. Passwords to access Century and TTRS are inside your child's reading record.



As you already know, we have now finished our swimming lessons. Well done to everyone for your effort. I was delighted that everyone received a certificate. This half term, our PE session will continue to take place on a Monday afternoon. Please ensure your child is equipped with the correct P.E. kit and that it is brought to school on the correct day.  All uniform and PE kits, including pumps, should have names in them. If your child wears earrings, they need to be removed for these lessons. PE kits should be black shorts, plain white t-shirt and black pumps (trainers, black or grey joggers are only acceptable for outdoor sports). If we are indoors we are strictly only allowed to wear pumps. Please refer to our uniform policy for more information.

*Please note that  PE is part of the school curriculum and children are expected to take part in every lesson unless medical evidence is provided*


We will continue to use Class Dojo as a way of celebrating the children’s successes, good behaviour choices and as a communication tool. If you would like to share any successes at home on here, please feel free to do so.


Here's to another term of success.  Please don't hesitate to speak to myself or Miss Ryan if you have any concerns/issues.
