Dates for the Diary!


Black History Month- October

We will be celebrating the achievements and recognising the role of black people in history. Watch out for some special workshops too!


Today we were lucky enough to taste and watch foccacia being made! Since we have been learning all about bread and healthy balanced diets, a special visitor made us some to taste and it was delicious!

We learnt all about healthy eating and selecting healthy choices for our lunchboxes. For this, year 4 really enjoyed planning, preparing and making delicious and healthy sandwiches to finish off our project.

It might sound a bit disgusting, but in Science we made poo! We have been learning about the human digestive system so learnt how food is digested and which organs help. It got messy but we learnt a lot too!

Today was European Languages Day!


Our class selected to represent Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest! We also learnt about different landmarks and languages used in countries around Europe and participated in a Languages Quiz! Venus won! We had the chance to learn about and try to use the Russian alphabet too.. take a look!

For this unit of Maths, we are mastering number.


The national curriculum objectives we are learning about are:

  • count in multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1000
  • find 1000 more or less than a given number
  • count backwards through zero to include negative numbers
  • recognise the place value of each digit in a four-digit number (thousands, hundreds, tens, and ones)
  • order and compare numbers beyond 1000
  • identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations
  • round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000
  • solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above and with increasingly large positive numbers
  • read Roman numerals to 100 (I to C)
  • know that over time, the numeral system changed to include the concept of zero and place value.


Recommended Reading List - Year 3/4



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


Each child has an orange reading record that needs to be completed at least twice 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. 



As we work on a fortnightly timetable, P.E will either be on Monday and Tuesday (week 1) or Tuesday and Wednesday (week 2). 

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