Welcome to our Year 4 class



We will read a new text called ‘The Whale' By Vita Murrow and use this to support our writing of setting descriptions using figurative and emotive language. We will develop our use of effective verbs and fronted adverbial phrases. We will then move on to write Newspaper Reports based on ‘The Whale’ using headlines, bylines, quotes and captions.

In Year 4 the children need to learn all their times tables - both multiplication and division facts up to 12X12. We are using times table rockstars and hit the button to help us. 

Can you beat your score? 


This half term PE will be on a Wednesday morning and we will focus on invasion games such as netball. Please ensure your child has a named kit in school at all times. Swimming will take place in the Spring term. 


In Maths, we will be focussing on mutiplicatiom, division, word problems and geometry. 


Our Science topic for the half term is Living Things and their Habitats . We will be learning about plants and animals, classification and environmental changes.



The children will have home reading books, times tables practise, English and My Maths homework on a weekly basis. Homework will be given on a Monday and must be handed in on a Friday.

Spellings will be given out on Mondays and tested on alternate Fridays. 



Parent Overview



We we investigate the legacy of the Ancient Greeks. We will ask the question: 'What did the Ancient Greeks do for us?' We will explore their architecture, scholars and language. We will compare their schooling and alphabet to ours as well as using clay to create art based on Greek life.
