Year 4

Welcome to Year 4


Spring Term 2022



Spring 2

This half term the children will explore geographical concepts linked to our topic, 'What Makes The Earth Shake.'  In Science, we will be investigating Electricity by constructing a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers.


Homework will be uploaded to the Year 4 Teams Page every Tuesday.  It will contain three days worth of English and Maths task linked to our daily learning that should be completed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening. If you get stuck at home, please talk to us and we will help you to find a solution. We expect all children to complete their homework each day and upload it to TEAMS. 

We expect Reading to be completed everyday and recorded in your Red Reading Record as well as Times Tables Rockstars to develop fluency in your times tables. Year 4 have a Times Tables test in the summer term so it is important to be fluent in this area.



Our PE Days are Tuesday (outdoor) and Wednesday (indoor). Please come to school dressed in your PE Kit on these days and you will remain in your PE kit for the whole day.



Please remember to bring in a water bottle each day.

You may bring a snack of either fresh fruit/ salad or plain popcorn or plain breadsticks or plain rice cakes.

Please remember not to provide snacks that contain dairy or nuts due to the children with allergies being on the playground.  


Please make sure you have written your names on your jumpers, coats, water bottles, sandwich boxes and snack pots.


In the summer term 2022 - the children will be sitting a multiplication Times tables test. They will be asked lots of questions and be given approximately 6 seconds to answer. This is why daily practice of the different times tables needs to be learnt off by heart so they can be answered automatically. We have set up weekly times table battles on TT Rock Stars which we would strongly recommend the children take part in. They can also practice individually using TT Rock stars or using the Mathsframe multiplication checker which replicates the test the children will be given. To pass the times tables test they need to answer all the questions correctly which is very tricky so the more they practice the better prepared they will be!  Here is a link to practice your timetables:
