We will be learning all about food chains, teeth and digestion.  We will also be creating a scrumdiddlyumptious meal! 

Alongside this, in our English work, we will take inspiration from:

We will be writing to Cadbury with our ideas for our own chocolate bars and writing biographies about Roald Dahl and Willy Wonka. We will also be creating a digestive system in class and writing explanation texts to teach others about how it works.

We will continue to learn to play a brass instrument with Mr Curtin from the 'Love Music Trust' every Thursday. We are looking forward to playing with the Halle orchestra later on in the year.

During the Summer Term, Year 4 will go swimming every Tuesday morning so please ensure P.E. kits are sent into school.  We are also fortunate enough to have a dance teacher come into school every Friday afternoon to teach Street Dance.  Please ensure P.E. kits are in school at all times.


Your  child will receive weekly Maths and spellings homework. This includes playing on TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed at least 3 times a week.   We will also set a 'topic' homework, to be handed in the last week of term.


Year 4 pupils need to learn all of their times tables by the end of the year as they will be tested on their quick recall of all facts up to 12 x 12. To help them learn the facts in a fun and memorable way, we have attached a list of websites with times tables set to the tune of modern pop songs. Please encourage your child to listen, sing and learn!


REMINDER: Recently, the children have been invited to play on the Prodigy website where they will find games based on the mathematical concepts they have been learning in class. The games automatically adjust to support or extend their learning so it should be an enjoyable way to improve everyone's understanding. If you experience any problems in accessing the website please speak to Mrs.Cook.



Reading is so important to your child's education and can be so much fun!   Your child will be expected to read a minimum of three times a week and to record this is their Reading Record. 


Should you have any queries or concerns throughout the year, please feel free to come and see us before or after school; our door is always open!
