Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to Year 4’s class page. We hope you had an enjoyable and restful summer and are ready to work hard during the autumn term.
This term we are learning about Invaders and Settlers. As part of our History and Geography, the children will be learning specifically about the Anglo-Saxons and their reasons for settlement. This will be explore further on our trip to Mountfitchet Castle on the Friday 27th September.
On this page, you will find our Year 4 curriculum map, which gives the overview of learning across the year; weekly homework; and any additional information we need to communicate with our parents.
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 them.

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.
Reading - We expect the children to be reading to an adult every night at home. It is the quality of the text and discussion about the language, characters, settings etc... that is more important than the quantity of text being read. It only needs to be two or three pages of text that have been questioned and unpicked to make sure your child has fully understood what they are reading and what might be inferred from the text. Please comment, sign and date your child's reading record daily.
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'. We have some children who have severe allergies so no dairy or nut snacks please.
