Year Four

Hola! This year Year Four will be taught by:

Mrs Todd, Mrs Barrie and Miss Maguire smiley



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

Ancient Greece!

We will be finding out about Ancient Greece, particularly everyday life and the achievements and influences of the Ancient Greeks.


This term in Science we will be finding out all about Humans and other Animals. We will be particularly looking at teeth, our digestive systems and food chains. 


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. We will be going swimming on Fridays. Children should bring a swimming costume and towel. Bikinis are not allowed.

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 Sring term music will link to our Ancient Greece topic.


Spelling test day is changing - spellings will now be given and tested on Monday. Children's Rockstars login is 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. At the end of year 4, children will sit a national tables test. You can practise a similar test on https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check


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

Thank you

Mrs Todd, Mrs Barrie and Miss Maguire
