Welcome to our Year Four Class Page. 

This page will be updated every half term to help keep you up to date with the things we will be working on this year. 

There will also be a copy of my long term plan for the year and each half term I will add my medium term plan for the half term. 

Look out for helpful websites to support the learning at home and a copy of the spellings for each half term. 


yr 4 text 3

We will completing two units – a poetry unit based on ‘The Lost Lost Property Office’ and a narrative unit based on ‘Leon and the place in-between’

In our poetry unit we will be looking at poems that use lists and learning about rhyming couplets and using them to create our own class poem.

In our narrative unit we will be developing characters and setting using varied and rich vocabulary and extending the range of sentences with more than one clause. All of this will lead to an end piece where we will be writing a diary.


We will be recalling multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12, using place value, known and derived facts to multiply and divide mentally, including: multiplying by 0 and 1; dividing by 1; multiplying together 3 numbers, recognising and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations and multiplying two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written layout. Also we will be measuring and calculating the perimeter of a rectilinear figures in centimetres and metres.
