Year Four

Hola! This year Year Four will be taught by:

Mrs Todd, Mrs Barrie and Miss Maguire smiley



In the Autumn Term, we will be learning all about...

World War One!

We will be finding out about World War One, particularly what life was like in the trenches. We visited Portland Basin for a WW1 worhsop to start our topic. We will also be finding out about what life was like in Ashton during the war, and wil visit Tameside local studies and archives centre to find out more about the munitions explosion near us.


This term in Science we will be finding out all about Sound, including making our own instruments with varying pitches. After half term we will learn about different states of matter. 


In the Spring Term, PE sessions will be on Thursday with Mr Downs and Friday with a dance coach. Children should keep their PE kit at school at all times as this can change.

Forest School

Children in year 4 have Forest School every other Tuesday. They should leave their wellies in school along with spare scruffy clothes with long sleeves and trouser legs if necessary (only if you are concerned about the mud or if your child wears shorts or skirts.) Children should always have arms and legs covered in Forest School.


Mr Derbyshire teaches music. In the Autumn term music topics are: WW1, Harvest, Blast and Christmas Belle Plates.


Children are given new spellings on Friday and tested the following Friday. Every child has a Times Tables Rockstars login stuck into their homework book. Children read with an adult and have a chance to change their book every week.

Children should read a book, practise their times tables and practise their spellings every day. Please sign the log to show that they have done this. Homework logs are checked every morning at school and children who have not completed their homework stay in at lunch to do it.

Times Tables

The expectation is that by the end of year 4 children should know all their tables up to 12 x 12. This means knowing tables in order, mixed up and division facts to match..


 If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come in and ask us.

Thank you

Mrs Todd, Mrs Barrie and Miss Maguire
