Welcome to Year 4 with Mrs Wheatcroft and Mrs Wassall!



This half term we have a Geography led topic all about Climate Change. We will be looking at the challenge of changing weather that contributes to longer-term climate change trends across the globe. Children will explore how changing patterns or weather in different locations around the world are impacting the lives of people with whom they can relate to. Children will also look at the  concept of global warming, what is contributing to it on a global scale and what does climate change look like.  Children will explore that there is action that is being taken during this century across the world to reduce fossil fuel consumption (and therefore carbon dioxide emissions) through the development of renewable sources of energy. 


PE in Year 4 is on a Thursday afternoon. Children should come to school dressed in their PE kits. 

Swimming will start this half term on Friday afternoon.


Spellings will be sent out through Ping each week and will be tested the following Monday. Reading books will be sent home each day and we expect that the children read for at least 10 minutes each day at home. Please ensure you are signing your child's homework diary daily when they have read. 

Children have their log-ins for Times Tables Rockstars and they should log in for 10 minutes each day. 

I have attached our Summer 1 overview and timetable below.. 

This half term we are reading How Does A Lighthouse Work?
