Welcome to Year 4!

Welcome to Year 4’s website pages. Here you can find photographs of the Year 4 classes in action; copies of letters we send home; useful websites and examples of our wonderful work. Don’t forget that every week Mathletics homework is set – pupils need to log in to complete their homework before they can play any further Mathletics games. Pupils all have a Times-tables Rockstars login too. Pupils should be practising their times-tables as much as possible as the National Curriculum states that pupils should know all tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4.


All Year 4 homework is set on a Monday, to be completed by the following Monday.


This term’s topic is entitled “States of Matter”.  The focus this first half term is a study of the water cycle in Geography, and solids, liquids and gases in Science.  In English, we continue to build on improving sentences with use of fronted adverbials and clauses.  In Maths we will be finishing our decimals work with a unit about money, before moving on to time, shapes and direction.

ICT – E-safety, web research and web page development

RE – Kingdom of God and religious festivals

PE – Gymnastics and outdoor summer sports

Art – Land Sculptures / DT– making bread and levers

Music – Singing, recorders and glockenspiel

On Thursday 14th June, Year 4 went on an exciting trip to Sulgrave Manor. On our arrival, the children dressed up as Tudors and learnt how to greet one another. Whilst on our tour of the manor house and gardens, the children tasted herbs, learnt about working as a ‘spit boy’, discovered why babies were hung on the wall and much, much more! After a Tudor lunch, the children and teachers were immersed in Tudor life; learning songs and dances as well as playing some Tudor games. Many of the children particularly enjoyed skipping with Mr Collier and Miss Steele!
