Children will be given spellings and times tables to learn every Monday.  They will be tested on Friday and you will be informed of their results weekly.  They will be sent home every Monday and you will find updated lists of the spellings on this page each week.


In Year 4, we are learning our timestables from 2 to 12. Keep practising at home on TT rockstars! The details on your login can be found in your reading record.


W/C 19th April

This week we will be focusing on our 12 timestable

Group 1

Group 2


The half term we are focusing on making and trying to keep our Lenten promises. We are also looking at incarnation and how God became human. The children will explore the ways in which Jesus was human in attending a Jewish school, having a family and friends as well as Jesus as truly God, through the miracles he performed.

Science - Forces & Magnets

In science this term, children will develop their understanding of forces such as pull and push and how this related to magnets. They will look at grouping and classifying materials to see if they are magnetic or non-magnetic.

Geography - The River Nile

In this unit the children will be learning about the importance of the River Nile to Egypt. They will learn which countries it flows through and where it is located. The children will develop their understanding of irrigation and how this is vital to the growing of crops as well as supporting settlements. They will also learn about technologies being used along the Nile to aid irrigation. Transportation is an important aspect of life by the Nile and we will explore which goods were carried along to the Nile and why.



Homework books will be sent out on a Thursday to be returned by the following Tuesday.

Please read with your child every night and sign their reading diary.

During this current time we will not be having indoor PE. 

 Games will be every Friday supported by Kris from City in the Community.  Please do not leave Games kits in school- Bring in Games kit each Friday.  Can you also send in a lightweight rain jacket as we will aim to get out in most weather.

The curriculum has been reviewed for 2020-21 and these will be used in our year groups going forward.
