Welcome to Year 4



Dear parents/carers and year 4 children,

Welcome to the Autumn term in year 4.

We hope you have had a lovely break and are feeling energised and looking forward to more learning in Year 4.



We will use Power Maths resources to focus on the following topics this term:







Times tables rock stars (TTRS) will be part of our homework and in school learning every day. By the end of year 4, the children will need to be confident recalling all their tables up to 12 x 12.



In English, we will be studying the book ‘Coming to England'. We will be using the book to inspire our own letter writing, narratives and descriptions. We will also be producing a leaflet to welcome new children to the school. In SPAG, we will be trying to become more confident at using fronted adverbials in our writing, as well as concentrating on using dialogue more effectively.


Learning Adventure

In History,  we will be learning when the Stone Age period started and that it was followed by the Bronze Age. We will be finding out about the lives of people in the Stone Age and comparing them with our own. Furthermore, we will investigate the reasons for people’s actions during this period.


During Science lessons, the children will be learning that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways. They will be identifying a variety of living things in their local areas and the wider environment. The children will also be looking at how if an environment changes, it can pose a danger to the living things that reside there.



PE lessons are on Tuesdays and Fridays in year 4 and the children are requested to come in their PE t-shirts on these days.



Weekly homework will be set on Ed Shed for spelling, maths fluency and grammar quizzes or maths quizzes (set on alternate weeks). There will also be 15 garage games set on TTRS which will support the children’s recall of times tables facts at their current level of achievement.



Please support the children to read their Accelerated Reader books for 20 minutes each day at home. Planners will be checked regularly, and house points will be awarded to children who record what they have read in their planners.
