Year 4 Curriculum Newsletter

Welcome to Year 4!

Hi Year 4, this is our special place on the website.  We will be using this space to give you important information and links to help you with your work.



This term our themes are

Our Changing Planet and the Mayans!




In English, our work will be based around Shaun Tan's 'The Rabbits', and Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll.





School Trip

On 1st March 2016, Year 4 will be visiting Cadbury World to enhance our Mayans topic! We will be travelling to and from the venue by coach. We will be leaving school at 9.00am, and returning at the end of the day.




Please help your child to learn their key facts at home for Maths. Practicing times tables; written methods for addition and subtraction; multiplication and division; and fractions revision will help your child to make excellent progress in their lessons.


Spellings and Homework

Each week we will send spellings home.  The children should bring these home on a Monday and they will  be tested the following week.  Please help your child to learn their spellings by asking them how to spell the words; encouraging them to use them in sentences; and looking for any common patterns between the words and other words that they are already familiar with.


Homework will be sent home on a Friday and will be English, Maths or Theme based.



PE will be on a Monday - Please make sure school PE kit is provided (indoor and outdoor).
