Year 4

Welcome to the Year 4 web page. 


Once again, we have a jam-packed and exciting term of learning ahead of us!


In English this half term, the children’s writing will be inspired by a number of magical texts, including ‘Wizardology: The Book of the Secrets of Merlin’ by Dugald Steer and ‘The Wizard’ by Jack Prelutsky.  The children will write instructions for creating an invisibility potion, a non-chronological report on broomsticks and a fantasy narrative.


In maths, we will focus on decimals, money and time.  Please remember to log on to Times Table Rock Stars at home and also complete the My Maths homework set each week.  For this half term, homework will be set via Seesaw on Wednesday and will also include an English task (spellings or a grammar activity) and reading.


In geography, the children will be learning about the UK.  They will learn about the countries that make up the UK, capital cities, and surrounding seas and oceans.  The children will undertake a lot of map work during this topic, looking closely at the physical landscapes of different areas within the UK.  They will also explore land use and economic activities in the UK.


Science this half term is based around States of Matter. The children will group or sort materials into solids, liquids and gases and observe that some materials change state when heated or cooled. They will also explore evaporation and condensation.


In RE, the children will be looking at a variety of religious and non-religious beliefs, including Humanism, and deciding what we can learn from these beliefs about what is right and wrong.


We shall continue to learn the recorder on a Tuesday and we are looking forward to sharing our learning at the Bridgewater Hall with the Halle Orchestra in June. P.E sessions will be on a Tuesday and Thursday this term. Please ensure that the children have their P.E. kits in school in a labelled bag. Spanish lessons will continue on a Tuesday this half term too.


Children should remember to bring a healthy snack and a refillable water bottle.


Children identified as needing a little extra support with their reading will read their reading book in an additional 1-1 session with an adult at least once weekly.  All children will be heard reading during our daily class guided reading sessions too.  The children are expected to take responsibility for changing their home reading book as and when required and reading at home is encouraged on a daily basis.


If you have any concerns or information you want to share with us, please send a message on Seesaw or Dojo and we will reply as soon as possible.
