For this unit of Maths, we are mastering  PLACE VALUE


The national curriculum objectives we are learning about are:

  • To recognise the value of any digit in a 4-digit number (thousand, hundreds, tens, ones) 
  • to find 1,000 more or less than nay given number
  • order and compare numbers beyond 1,000 using < and > 
  • round any number to the nearest 10, 100, 1000
  • to count backwards through 0 to include negative numbers 



Any help you can give your child in these areas is greatly appreciated!!

Recommended Reading List - Year 3/4



In Year 4, children need to be reading with an adult/ older sibling regularly!


Each child has a green reading record that needs to be completed at least three times per week, being signed by whoever reads with the child. You are welcome to make comments or encourage your child to note ideas about what they have read. Children can select books from the class reading corner, the school library or a book from their own home. 


Children are also encouraged to use the red Reading Journals (that were given to them last year). Once 8 activities have been completed, children will be able to select a 'Prize Book' to take home and enjoy at any time!



Spellings will be tested weekly in Year 4.

Each week we will work as a class to investigate a new spelling patter, for example words using the pattern 'ou'.

Children are then encouraged to investigate more words at home to be tested on 10 random works on a Friday. 



This week's Spelling Pattern (week beginning 1/10/18): singular nouns with the possessive apostrophe

We use the possessive apostrophe to show belonging.

You write the singular noun + 's e.g. It’s Joe’s pencil case.


This week your spellings are HOMOPHONES

These words sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings.


For example

their, they're there or brake and break.


Investigate homophones ready for a random test next week (1st October)


Below is a link to all of the words that children in Year 4 should know how to spell:



P.E will be on Mondays and Wednesdays. 

Children need to have the correct P.E. kit for both indoor and outdoor P.E, at school at all times.

As a healthy school, children are encouraged to bring in healthy food e.g. yoghurt, fruit or snack bars, for their break time snack,rather than crisps and chocolate
