Year 4 2020 - 2021

Miss Kerrison

Welcome to Year 4!
The teachers in Year 4 are Miss Kerrison (4K) and Miss Darbyshire (4D). The teaching assistants are Mr Foster (4K) and Miss Shelmani (4D). We are very much looking forward to having you all back in school, we hope you are excited for all you will learn in Year 4.

Children will be given a reading book on Mondays to use for reading at home. The books should be returned on Fridays or Mondays, at which point your child will receive a new book to read. We expect children to be reading at least 3 times a week at home to an adult. Children will also be given a reading record to record when they have  read to an adult at home.

P.E. and Swimming
Children will take part in weekly P.E. lessons. P.E. will take place on Tuesdays. Children must come to school in their P.E. kit (white top, black trousers/shorts/leggings and appropriate trainers).
4K will take part in swimming lessons for the first half of the year starting on 14 th September. 4D will go for the second half of the year. If your child is swimming for the first half of the year, please refer to our swimming information letter, which can be downloaded on this website page, for details about the sessions and what your child needs to wear.

Homework and spellings
Children will be set homework each week online on School Spider. This will be set every Friday and must be submitted online by Wednesday for marking.

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 practise regularly in school 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 mystery stories and recounts. The pupils will have many
opportunities to explore writing mystery stories and recounts linked to our work on the Romans.


We will start our maths learning this year with place value.

The children will be learning about the human digestive system and the names and role of teeth.
They will have the opportunity to take part in an investigation alongside their learning about the role
of the different parts of the digestive system.


Year 4 will be learning about the style of Fauvism through our artist study of Matisse.


In History this half-term, we will be learning about the Romans. We will learn about who the Romans
were and why they invaded Britain. This will help us to understand our learning about how the
Romans changed Britain later in the term.
