Year 4

Welcome to Year 4


Welcome to Year 4's class page. We are learning about the world's rainforests in our geography based topic of 'Lost...' and 'Living Things' for science. If you would like further information about learning at St Peter’s, please visit the curriculum section of our website. If you would like to speak to one of the Year 4 teachers about learning, please do not hesitate in contacting us.


Friday 23rd May


Thank you for joining us for our class assemblies this term and helping to prepare your children. 

They have been amazing.  


There is no written homework set this week.  However, please continue to read (and record this in your reading log), use Education City and practise your tables.   You may also like to take a look at our homework page.  There are photographs of the formal methods we use for division and multiplication.


To help you practise your tables, please use TT Rockstars. 

Try five minutes each day rather than a longer session once each week. 

You may also download the blank multiplication square or a muddled tables square from the homework page and practise completing this.  Time yourself and try to beat your score each time.


Please also take some time to practise telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes

remind yourselves of these measurement facts:


12 months = 1 year

(and know the names, in order,  for the months of the year)

7 days = 1 week

365 days in a year (366 in a leap year)

60 minutes = 1 hour

60 seconds = 1 minute

100 cm = 1 m

1000 m = 1 km

1000 g = 1 kg

1000 ml = 1 Litre


Thank you for your support.



Some Reminders:


Spelling / Multiplication and Division Facts - It is expected that you know all your tables up to 12 x 12 and can spell ALL the words on the Year 3/4 list (see our curriculum page).  Please use the website TT Rockstars to help you practise your multiplication and division facts.  There is a link below.  If you need your log-in details again, please let your class teacher know. 


Days - PE is on Mondays (swimming) and Wednesdays (outdoors).  Please make sure your child has a navy blue tracksuit.  Library day is Thursday.


Equipment - Please remember to label all your  clothes (including PE kit and hats and gloves) and your water bottle and sandwich box.  


Homework - Mathematics Homework,  Literacy homework and new spellings/ tables will be published on our class page. Please date and complete homework in the yellow homework book by Wednesday.   

Snacks - Please ensure you have a healthy snack of fruit or vegetables or salad or plain breadsticks or plain rice cakes or plain popcorn each day.  Water bottles should be filled and may be topped up from our water dispensers during the day.  Try to bring fruits in a combination of different colours as part of your five-a-day and our aim to 'Eat a Rainbow'.
