Miss Johnson

Welcome to Year 4!

Welcome back to Ashbury Meadow, here you will find information on what the children are learning about in the Spring term. 



Children will need their swimming kit on Mondays

Children will need their PE kit on Tuesdays


All of the children are given home reading books to read at home. I would appreciate it if you could continue to listen to your child reading at home for ten minutes per night and ask your child questions about the text your child has read. Having an adult or older sibling listen to them reading will benefit your child immensely and help them to make excellent progress in reading. Please make comments about your child’s reading and sign your child’s home reading diary each night and similarly, we shall make comments back. Home reading diaries are excellent ways of communicating progress/concerns regarding your child’s reading between parents/guardians and staff in school and we look forward to using them effectively with you.


Year 4 has time in the library every Monday. This is great opportunity for the children to choose books they are interested in and have some personal reading time.


It is important for the children to also practice and embed their times tables and division facts up to 12 x 12 at home! This will greatly enhance and assist their learning in school.


Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be expected to be returned by the Tuesday. In addition to this, spellings will be given out on a Monday, and then will be tested on a Friday.

Reading Records need to be given in every Monday.



This half term we will theme our writing around the Blue Abyss. In particular, we will be writing persuasive letters on saving the ocean and looking at the story, Cephalox: The Cyber Squid.



This term we will be learning or mastering our knowledge of: 

  • Place Value – rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 100
  • Fractions
  • Multiplication and Division


Please ensure that your child practises times table facts at home and uses mathematics based apps and games. 



The children will be learning about all living things and their habitats and will be carrying out investigations over the course of the half term. Then, next half term the children will be looking at sound and how it travels.  



Our topic this half term is the Blue Abyss. Our learning will include: learning about the word’s 5 oceans, the ocean layers, expeditions throughout history and the Great Barrier Reef! Our children will also be visiting blue planet aquarium on Friday 25th January.
