Welcome to the Summer Term!
To begin with, our topic on the Saxons and Vikings will continue. But, it won't be long until our new topic of 'Let's take a river journey. Are you ready?' begins.
Our PE sessions throughout the Summer will continue to be on a Wednesday and Friday, so please make sure you come in your PE kit on those days.
Reading diary collections will be on Mondays, times tables tests on a Wednesday and Tackling Tables tests on a Friday. Spelling tests will continue on a Friday,every two weeks.
We are looking forward to seeing what this term brings.

Summer Term 2021 - Topic information.
We will continue for the first half term to learn more about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.
Read on you find out what exciting learning we will be doing in our Topics this term....
Traders or Raiders? What do you think?
We know about the Romans but who came next? Gazing out across the North Sea might give
you a scare! Viking long boats are making their way to shore. With dragonheads leading the way they conquered England through bloody battle and vicious attacks. Discover the creation of the monarchy during the Anglo-Saxon and Viking periods and find out how the land we call England was created!!
Then after half term we will be learning about the journey of our rivers. Read on for further details.......
Let’s take a River journey. Are you ready?
Are you ready to embark on an adventure? Where does a river begin? Learn about the formation and features of a river. Follow its epic journey to the sea and discover the role of the water cycle. Play a definition game, illustrate a glossary, create a collage, make an estuary nature reserve leaflet, learn about the 10 major world rivers and devise a dance capturing the moods of a river. Become a designer and build and test your own boat to launch! Finally, visit Barnwell Country Park for a day out in nature!
Do you want to find out more? Look at our Knowledge organisers for more information.
Year four have PE on a Wednesday and a Friday. Please can you send your child into school wearing their PE kits on these days. Can you also ensure hair is tied back and earrings are removed, if your child is unable to do this themselves.
Each week on a Monday, we collect in your child's reading diary. We would expect your child to have read four times each week. They are then able to move across the planets to become a Rocket Reader!
Your child can record in the diary what they are reading, but can you please sign to acknowledge this.
We look forward to seeing how many Rocket Readers we have by October half term!!
Your child will receive spellings every two weeks. Please encourage and support your child to learn these.
By the end of year 4, your children will need to be able to recall multiplication facts for all tables up to 12 x 12. They will have weekly times tables to learn and our speed tests will take place on a Wednesday and a Friday.
Please visit the Mathsframe website to practice your tables. Please ensure you are also signing in to Tackling Tables weekly, to help improve your speed.
