Year Four

Hola! This year Year Four will be taught by:

Miss Furness and Mrs Stirrup smiley



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

The Frightful First World War.

We are starting our new topic with a trip to Portland Basin Muesum the first week back for a workshop all about life during World War One. During this topic we will be learning about the reasons for the war, the countries involved in the war and what life was like for people in Ashton during the war. We will be learning war songs in Music lessons with Mr Derbyshire and WW1 dancing in P.E lessons.


This term in Science, we will be focusing on 'Sound.' and we will be planning and carrying out many exciting investigations during this topic. 


In the Autumn Term, PE sessions will be on Thursday and Friday afternoons. Children should keep their PE kit at school at all times as this can change. 


Children are given a homework log every Monday. They must practise their class and individual spellings, times tables and read their reading book every night at home and get an adult to tick and sign the log. The logs are checked by myself or Mrs Stirrup every morning during registration and if they aren't signed the children will stay in at dinner time to practice.

Times Tables

The expectation for times tables is that the by the end of Year 4, children should know all the times tables up to the twelves. This means knowing the tables in order, in random order and knowing the division facts for all times tables. Tables are tested fortnightly by Mrs Stirrup but must be practised daily in order for children to acheive their personal target. When they have learned them all, they are tested by Mr Wilson to become a 'Times Tables Champion' and have their photograph on the wall of fame. We are hoping to fill the board with photographs of Year 4 by the end of this school year!


Class spellings will be given out every Friday and will be tested the following Friday. These words are taken from the English Curriculum list of Year 3/4 words and all children are expected to be able to spell and use these words independently in their writing by the end of Year 4. Sometimes words will be given related to the current class topics. Individual spellings are tested and given out fortnightly by Mrs Stirrup and must also be practised daily in order for the children to achieve their personal target and make progress.


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

Thank you

Miss Furness
