Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

The Year 4 Classes are taught by Mr Hodgkins, Mr Ip and Mrs Moss and our brilliant TAs Mrs Rodionova, Mrs Dennis, Mrs Farboud and Mr Nash.

This year we are going to have many adventures to help us learn, from travelling through Africa to journeying through the human body!

This half term we are continuing to focus on the Anglo Saxons.  Our learning begins with learning why the Anglo Saxons arrived in Britain and where they settled.  In history, we learn how to have a historical debate and about how versions of events differ about Alfred the Great.

In Art, we will be learning about art from the Anglo Saxon times, developing our drawing skills by experimenting with line and colour, so that we can create our own illuminated letter.

During our English lessons, we are reading and writing texts based on stories with historical settings.  We will focus on the text ‘Beowulf’, retold by Michael Morpurgo, learning to use fronted adverbials and other powerful descriptive words to write in role and create our own chapter for the book.

In maths, we are continuing our work on multiplication, focusing on the seven times table, and then working on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.


Homework tasks are provided on a Thursday, where appropriate and should be completed by the following Wednesday.

This term, we have Forest School on alternate Mondays, so please ensure your child has clothing that are appropriate for working outside.

We will also be doing indoor and outdoor PE on a Thursday and Friday.  Please send your child to school in their named PE kit, with their normal clothes in a bag, so that they can change after the lesson.
