Mrs Webster 

Welcome back to our Summer Term 2023! 

Please note for this term PE days have changed to MONDAY and FRIDAY.  Both sessions will be outside.

Welcome back to school for the Spring term 2023!  Below you will find all the details for the learning we will be doing over this term.  It's going to be lots of fun!

Our Design Technology work this term - Viking Longhouses

The result of lots of research, planning, building and evaluation!

Welcome to the Year 4 webpage. 

Here you will find all the information you need for this year's learning as well as weekly homework.



Have a go at the Maths questions below, they are all based on Number & Place Value that we have been exploring over the last few weeks. 

If you would like a paper copy then just ask at the Classroom Door!

Answers are included if you need them, but please do bring the work into school so that we can mark it and see how you are getting on! Good Luck!

PE - please note our PE days are Monday and Friday

If your child wears earrings, please ensure that they come into school with their earrings covered or  removed.  They should be able to cover the earrings themselves if this is not done at home.  School cannot supply plasters so please ensure they bring them to school.

Thank you!

Please note, week 1 words are different to the ones indicated on the Autumn sheet.  Children have been learning the words on the sheet below in school, and those are the ones that will be covered in our spelling test in week 1.

Try a different way to practice your timestables by printing off a blank chart and filling it in.  Can you beat your speed each time? Good luck!

Parents: Please let me know if you are unable to print these off as I can provide them for your child.

Homework Grid

Use the orange homework books children brought home on Monday 5th September 2022 to do the homework from the homework grid.  There will also be extra homework uploaded to the Year group web page each week on a Thursday.  

Homework books should be returned to school each week to be marked (on a day that is convenient to you).  We ask that you try to ensure your child is completing the homework on a regular basis to enable them to get into a routine - this will make life much easier in the long run!

If you wish to have printed copies of the work from the web page then please do ask.

For some extra free maths games have a look at Its a great website for practising maths formulas! 

If you have any questions please let me know!

Class Information:

Our PE days for Autumn 1 (2022/23) are a Monday and a Wednesday. Please ensure children have removed earrings (or can remove them by themselves) or they have plasters to tape them up. This term we will be learning how to play Football and Netball 

We are using a reading comprehension scheme called VIPERS from this term. 

The acronym stands for Vocabulary, Infer, Predict, Explain, Retrieve and Sequence

Have a look at some of the sentence stems that you could use when asking your children about the book they are reading.  A great way to improve understanding.

Be inspired  by these recommended reads all specifically for Year 4 - let us know which is your favourite. 

We love reading in Year 4!
