Romans Trip to Chester - Tuesday 19th September


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 Romans. In particular, we will be writing newspaper articles on the Roman invasion of Britain and non-chronological reports on Roman life.


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

· Place Value

· Addition and Subtraction

· 2d Shape


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



The children will be learning about Animals, including Humans and will be carrying out investigations over the course of the half term. Children will be looking closely at the digestive system, teeth and food chains.



Our topic this half term is Romans. Our learning will include researching Roman life, using our map skills to look at where the Romans invaded from, creating Roman shields and taking a trip to the Grosvenor Museum in Chester! This will take place on Tuesday 19th September.
