Let Summer begin!


To start the final term of Year 4,  we have lots of interesting things to explore, discover and enjoy.  Our priority will be to focus on quick recall of the times tables facts to 12 x 12 in preparation for the national multiplication check in June.


If you have any questions or queries, please do get in touch through Class Dojo or the school office and we will get back to your as soon as possible.  Or, please come and see us at the door at the start/end of the day if your have any concerns at all.

Summer Term 2024



This term we will be looking explanation texts, dilemma stories, cinquain poems, instructions and adventure stories. We will continue to focus on learning the Year 3/4 spelling words as well as different spelling patterns including prefixes and suffixes. Throughout this term we will be using a wider range of conjunctions and expanded noun phrases to make our writing even more exciting and engaging. We will continue to work on our editing and improving skills too.


Whole class reading activities will be part of each day. The texts we look at will be topic based and include fiction, non-fiction and poetry. During this session, we will further develop our fluency, inference, retrieval, prediction, sequencing and summarising skills.



This term we will start with further developing our knowledge of decimals, relating them to their equivalent decimals. We will then be focussing on money and telling the time.  We will then be interpreting charts and line graphs .  Then we will then explore properties of shape before moving on to learning about position and direction.

Please ensure that all items of clothing are named. A small named bag containing your PE kit is all that is necessary as cloakroom space is limited.  Please keep your PE kit in school and we will ensure that it is sent home each half term for washing.




As so many of us are spending more and more time online, it is important that the children have a secure knowledge of how to be safe.  We will discuss various issues regarding this each week.  If you or your child  have any questions linked to their online world, then please do not hesitate to get in touch or have a look at some of the links below.
