Year Four

Welcome to the Year 4 page. We have lots of interesting things that we will be learning about this half term.

Homework will continue to be given out every Monday to be completed and handed in by Friday. Logins for any websites, such as TTRS will be stuck in the back of the children’s homework book and in their home/school diaries. When they bring their homework in on a Friday their name gets put into a draw and one lucky winner wins a prize. Alongside the weekly homework we also look forward to seeing the tasks pupils complete from their Homework Grid. Pupils choose at least 4 of the tasks to complete over the term, and they are a great opportunity to show creativity and independent learning. Please listen to your child read a minimum of four times a week and record this in the home school diary. Reading books and home/school diaries should be brought into school every day. Pupils who read regularly at home will be considered for the weekly Reading Award and will get a certificate in assembly to celebrate.



In Maths this term we will be focusing on number. We will be learning about place value, addition and subtraction, and multiplication and division.  Multiplication and division is especially important in Year 4 and we will be working with the children to help them learn their key times tables facts throughout the year.

You can help: Practice times tables at home.


In English this term, we will be reading books all about Ancient Greece. We will be reading books such as ‘Myths: Meet the Heroes, Gods and Monsters’ and ‘Falling out of the Sky’. We will be using these core texts to inspire us to write myths, poems, non-chronological reports and setting descriptions.

You can help: In reading, we will be focusing on using the VIPERS to answer questions. We will be particularly focusing on inference and explanation. Asking your child questions that require them to explain whilst reading at home would support your child’s learning in school.

Humanities and Science:

This term we are learning all about Ancient Greece. This will include learning about the make-up of Ancient Greece, and the importance of it’s location to the wider world today. We will be aiming to answer our key question which is ‘How did the Ancient Greeks influence us today?’

We will also be studying Animals including humans – looking at the digestive system. We will also learn about food chains and the classifications of different animals.
