Welcome Badgers!


Our class page is where you can find information about PE days, homework and the learning we will be doing over the term.


Summer Term 1


Our learning question this term is linked to our Reading.


How would you survive a magical storm?



Within Maths this half term, we will be focusing on decimals, money and time.


In English this term, our writing will be focused on a Poem and a Narrative. We will be practising grammar, punctuation and spelling learnt in this and previous year groups.


In Reading, our Non-Fiction texts will focus around our Science topic and History. Our Fiction texts will focus on The Queen's Nose by Dick King Smith. We will continue to use the VIPER strategies the children already understand and will challenge the children to answers questions in a detailed way.


In History we will be exploring The Stuarts and in Geography we will be focusing on London and the South East. In Science we will be looking at States of Matter and the Water Cycle. In PE will be starting our Swimming lessons and focused on Athletics in School. In Design Technology we will be focused on Mechanisms and in Art we will be exploring the Monuments of the Byzantine Empire.

Year four have PE on a Wednesday and Swimming on a Thursday. Please can you send your child into school wearing their PE kits on a Wednesday and on a Thursday children will need to come to school in their School uniform with their swimming bits in a bag. 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 Friday, 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. 


Times tables


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.
