Year 4 have really enjoyed their Art focus, as part of their Law and Order topic. We started with exploring line and tone, and exploring how Van Gogh uses them. Then we used Big Ben as our inspiration to research and practise in our sketchbooks… 

Then, we evaluated our work and produced a more focused piece showing line and tone with our sketching pencils.

Welcome to Year 4

The Summer term is always a busy time for children in Year 4 with lots of new learning taking place as well as consolidating previously learnt skills. English and Mathematics will continue to be taught daily and focus on key writing skills and mathematical calculations including fractions. Times tables remain a main priority right up to 12x12, and we appreciate your help in practising these at home. We will continue with Rockstar challenges in class, and at home, and our very popular ‘Superheroes’ work. We are also practising regularly for the Year 4 Statutory Multiplication Check which is in a ten-day window at the start of June. We ask that all children practise regularly at home and school, to help with this.


In our Science lessons, we will be exploring ‘Animals including Humans, exploring the concepts of food chains and webs and looking at how animals eat. After half term, we look at the digestive system.

Please continue to send your child with a named water bottle, that they can refill and use in school. We ask that it is not metal please, as these can be heavy. We will continue with morning toast up until close of register and should you wish, children can continue bring a piece of fruit to school for their morning snack.


Our Thematic topic is entitled “Under the Canopy”, looking at Rainforests and will link to many areas of the curriculum including Geography, Science, Music, Art and DT. Our visitors join us for the Rainforest Workshop on Monday 15th – thanks to those who have already paid.


Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions. Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times; PE kits can be purchased from the school office. We ask that children also have an outdoor P.E kit for the colder months. This should consist of trainers, jogging bottoms and a tracksuit top. PE kits can be purchased from the school office and can be kept in school all week on your peg. We ask please, that all kit is named including the bag itself, and you check that your child’s PE shoes still fit comfortably as Year 4 children do have a habit of growing rapidly!


We have changed the PE timetable slightly for the Summer Term. As we have an exciting term of Sport planned including Sports Days and Olympic week, it would be great if children could have their kit in school every day if possible.

Class 13 PE sessions are: Wednesday and Friday.

Class 14 PE sessions are: Tuesday and Thursday

Class 15 PE sessions are: Tuesday and Friday.


During the first half of the term, there will be final information shared about our residential stay at Conwy in May 2024, including a chat in school with all the children attending. We will also talk to those not attending, to explain how their 3 days in school will look and some of the exciting learning planned.


Children in Year 4 receive regular homework: purple creative homework books will continue and phonic spellings will be given out and tested on the following week. Reading books will need to be brought to school each day please, and taken home each night, and we continue to ask for at least one journal to be completed each week. The journals have been refreshed with a new Comprehension focus for the Summer Term. Times table homework may also be given, as needed.


We anticipate a busy and exciting term ahead and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support. Your child is working hard to finish Year 4 strongly, to prepare them fully for Year 5. If you have any concerns or worries, please arrange a time to speak to one of us, as you play a vital role in your child’s education.
