Year 4 2020 - 2021

Miss Kerrison

Welcome back to Year 4!

Happy New Year! As in the autumn term, the teachers in Year 4 are Miss Kerrison (4K) and Miss Darbyshire (4D). The teaching assistants are Mr Foster (4K), Miss Shelmani (4D) and Mrs Edith (4K). We hope you are excited for all you will learn this term in Year 4 in our home-learning work on Google Classrooms.



During Spring 1, we will be learning online via Google Classroom. Your child’s work will be set each morning at 8:45am. We cannot wait to see what you achieve at home! For more information, please see our remote learning policies on this website.



Whilst we are learning at home, please make sure that your child is reading at least 3 times a week to an adult at home. To support this, your child can use eBooks which will be assigned through Google Classroom.


P.E. and Swimming

Your child will be given a daily P.E. home-learning assignment with a link to a children’s workout as well as a home P.E. activity card for each day. Please make sure that your child is keeping active at home and taking breaks between their home-learning activities to move around and keep active.

Once we are able, Year 4 will start swimming lessons again, with 4D starting as soon as they can. You will receive information regarding this at the relevant time.



Children will be set spellings every Monday on Google Classroom. These spellings should be practised throughout the week and we will have a test together on our Friday assembly.


Times tables

By the end of Year 4, children need to know all the times table facts for the 1-12 times tables. At the end of the year, children will take part in the Year 4 National Times Table Check which tests their knowledge of the times table facts for 1-12 times tables. We will continue to practise regularly in our home-learning activities but it is crucial that children are practising their times tables at home daily for rapid recall. To support them with this, please make sure your child is regularly practising on Times Table Rockstars.


What will we be learning this half-term?


This half term we will learn about journey tales. The pupils will have many opportunities to explore writing journey tales based on the novel “The Snow-Walker’s Son” by Catherine Fisher.


This half-term in Maths we will learn about further multiplication and division facts and graph work.


The children will be learning about states of matter. We will be identifying and classifying objects according to their state of matter and take part in a scientific experiment at home to investigate the effect of heating and cooling on state of matter!


Year 4 will be learning about sculpture, the sculptor Antony Gormley and creating a 3D Roman building.


In Geography this half-term, we will be learning about Europe and map work, including using an atlas. We will learn how to find the countries and capitals cities in the continent of Europe using an atlas. We will also learn about the location and significance of the Equator, the Tropic lines and Hemispheres and we will learn about the counties and cities that surround Greater Manchester.
