Welcome to Year 4!
This year our learning is going to take us high up into the mountains in the Misty Mountain Sierra, we will visit perilous rulers in the form of the Egyptians, Romans, Vikings and Normans, we will write songs using our very own musical instruments, explore how our bodies work when looking at Burps, Bottoms and Bile, and we will go to the deepest depths whilst exploring the Blue Abyss!
We have got a very exciting year ahead, and we really can not wait!

Our PE days are: Wednesday and Thursday
HOME LEARNING: Children should be encouraged to read at home at least 4 times a week in order to complete their book quizzes on Accelerated Reader in school. They should also access the maths programmes (TTRS and Freckle) as much as possible. It is really important that the children are accessing TT Rockstars at home as we will be carrying out the Year 4 Multiplication Check during the Summer Term, this is a statutory requirement for all children of this age to take part in.
EVERY DAY - Reading books, home/school diaries, P.E. kits and water bottles to be in school. (Water bottles should be taken home each day to be cleaned).
Please provide your child with the following P.E. kit, as they will be taking part in some outdoor P.E. throughout the winter.
- T-shirt (house colour or white only)
- Tracksuit bottoms
- Sweatshirt or hooded top
Please bring your kit to school on a Monday, and it will be returned on the Friday as there may be some weeks when children may have additional games lessons. Please ensure children have their kits in school on these days and all jewellery is removed, including earrings. Children should not wear hooped earrings in school at any times.
