Remote Learning Timetables - 5th January 2021


Welcome to Year 4!

(See bottom of page for links to home learning during potential school closure).


Our team are:

Mr Carson, Miss Lynch, Mrs McCarthy and Mrs Freeman

The year starts with Year 4 developing and consolidating the written methods for subtraction and addition, as well as multiplication and division. Division will be  a particularly important area of study but with all the hard work that both classes have put in towards learning their times tables, this should not prove too difficult to master. Throughout the year, we will revisit and hopefully extend our knowledge of these important skills.

We will also be revisiting fractions, where we will focus on equivalent fractions before extending the work into decimals.

Acute right, and obtuse should be terms you become familiar with, if you are not already, when we continue to develop our understanding and knowledge of shape.


Time is something children in Year 4 always seem to struggle with. Children need to be able to tell the time using both analogue and digital clocks. They must also recognise 24-hour times. Please do practise this skill, regularly, at home.

In Year 4, we have some amazing texts which we focus on. We will be reading Christophe's Story, The Spiderwick Chronicles, and The Iron Man, as the basis of our fiction units. In non fiction, we will be looking at biographies, using Neil Armstrong's story, non-chronological reports. We will centre on the Shang Dynasty and write newspaper reports. We will have Incredible Sports as our starting point. In our poetry lessons, we will study the collected poems of  Grace Nichols and James Carter.

Added to this will be a healthy dose of spellings and grammar - doesn't that sound fun?!


Each half term brings a different area to investigate; Sound, Electricity, Grouping Living Things, Dangers to Living Things, Human Nutrition and Changes of State. Each lesson, there will be a scientist of the week award for someone, in each class, who has worked particularly well.

Humanities (Geography, History, RE, RSHE)

History is really enjoyable in Year 4 as we look at the Ancient Greeks, the impact of the The Roman Empire on Britain. If you have enjoyed Horrible Histories (either the books or television series), there are elements in each of these subjects that should appeal to you, alongside some important life lessons.


Linking closely to our history lessons is Geography. We look at the geography of the United Kingdom and Europe, Settlement patterns and map reading.

In R.E. we will try to answer question such as, 'What is the most important part of the Nativity?' and and 'Is forgiveness always possible?' We will also complete a week long project on Islam,  (including visiting speakers) during inter-faith week.


For RSHE we start the year with New Beginnings and later look at British Values.

Arts (Art and Design Technology)
Both art and design technology are generally linked to our topics of study.


When we study the Ancient Greeks we will look at how pottery and clay work changed, during this period and how this can be used to date sites. We will then make clay pots and tiles that correspond to different eras.


Closer to Christmas we will be making a variety of pop-up cards in our Art and Design lessons.


When we look at British Values, in R.S.H.E., we will study and sketch the Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament).

Both classes will continue to learn to play the guitar on a weekly basis. In previous years the children have performed, in front of KS2, a mix of whole class and solo pieces. At home, please encourage your child to practise, regularly, in order that they will become more adept players.

In out computing curriculum, we will complete a unit called, ​'We are Music Makers', which links nicely with our science unit, on sound. We will be learning how to sequence sounds and how computing can be used to make music. We will also learn the skills needed for developing software and games. We will start to learn to code, so that the children can create their own games. Children will be able to access the Purple Mash site (2DIY3D) if they want to continue this at home. There are also some other links on this web page.
We have P.E. on a Monday. 

For Indoor P.E., we will undertake some gymnastics floor work, dance units (in which we explore expression, presence and improvisation skills), and table tennis.

For Outdoor P.E., both classes will develop their skills in hockey, Boccia, table tennis and athletics.


Both classes will have a 2 week block of swimming lessons.
Please ensure children have the correct P.E. kit in school (both for indoor and outdoor P.E.) and that they leave it in school for the entire half term.


Forest School

During the year, each class should have an opportunity to take part in Forest School activities with Mr Carson. There are many benefits to the children learning outdoors, and it especially supports childrens' mental health and wellbeing. (See more about Forest School, in the Curriculum area of the website),

Children will be given homework for Literacy and Mathematics, every Monday, to be returned to school, on the following Friday. The children may also have spellings to learn.

On-going homework, for all children, will be reading every night and learning their times tables. Some children may be given additional homework, to support and consolidate their learning. Your support with all homework is greatly appreciated.

We have lots of educational visits planned.   Each half term we will be making a visit to Ditton Library. We will be visiting the cinema to watch Wonder Park and then completing a film review and completing book comparisons.   At the end of the year, we have a residential visit to Beeston Outdoor Education Centre, which is always a highlight of the Year 4 year and somewhere where we can social more, with each other, whilst at the same time, learning lots!

Whole Class Summer Music Challenge! 10th July 2020

Work to shout about!!

Being away from school hasn't stopped our Year 4's! In our google meet sessions we have read Leon and the Place Between, check out below the amazing writing the children have produced so far!! 


Year 4's description of the place between.

The twisting, spiralling staircase led to the depths of the place between. The purple, mysterious fog surrounded the staircase. A brave man who sat upon a magical, white horse balanced on the edge.  My eyes went wide with amazement when I spotted the green, smug genie. The curious man was playing a game of cards with an acrobat and a child magician. The talented, flexible acrobat swung across the genie's table on a golden braided rope. A talented man was holding two flaming, fire rings as a cat leapt through them. I whizzed around the place between on a magical colourful carpet, making sure to duck my head to avoid the shooting stars and flying cards. What an amazing time in the amazing place between!
