Year Four

Hola! This year Year Four will be taught by:

Miss Furness and Mrs Stirrup smiley



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


We will be finding out about Coasts and coastal areas and we will be going on a Geogrpahy field trip to Formby Beach in Summer 2. Whilst there, we will be comparing this area with our own locality and identifying similarities and differences in both localities.

During English lessons,  we will be reading different books about lightouses and writing an explanation of how they work.


This half term in Science, we will be focusing on 'Teeth and Eating.' We will be learning all about the different jobs our bodies have to do and we will also be planning and carrying out many exciting investigations during this topic. 


In the Spring 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 Spellings objevtives for Year 4 from the English Curriculum and all children are expected to be able to spell and use these words independently in their writing. 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
