Year 4

Spring Term

What a great term we all had. The children learnt about different natural disasters from around the world and why they occur. We also created a structure in DT using a glue gun which had to withstand a natural disaster. In science, we all created an electrical circuit to power a fan in preparation for the summer. In English, we continued to develop our reading and writing skills around the book: The Wizard of Oz. The children worked hard in Maths, building on knowledge in Multiplication and Division and Fractions. In music, we started our string lessons as the children practise for the end of 2023 show. We also had a a great experience with our friends as we camped at school for a night.

Summer Term


Our topic this term is called ‘Secrets of the Sarcophagus’. As part of this, children will be learning about Ancient Egypt. Children will also be learning about sound in Science, learning how to play a stringed instrument in Music and practising Cricket and Athletic skills within PE.

The main drivers for our topic for this term are: Geography, History and Science. If you would like to know more about the learning journey your child will be on this term, please let a member of the Year 4 team know via email. that will support your learning at home.







This term we will be using Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll to drive our writing and reading outcomes. Through this text the children will write a non-chronological report, a newspaper article and a persuasive argument as well as answering comprehension question about it.


We follow the White Rose overview to support our maths learning. This term, we will be focusing on Decimals, Moeny, Time, Shape and Position and Direction.

As part of our Year expectations, all children will take part in the MTC (multiplication tables check) as part of government expectations. Therefore, children will be focusing on set tables fortnightly. They will also be practising the recall of arithmetic skills.

This website can support your child at home with practise questions to further develop their confidence.

Here is some further information about the MTC

Please look below for useful links.


Our expectation is that homework is completed weekly and handed into the class teacher. Homework will be sent out on a Friday and then it should be returned the following Friday.

We can support your child with homework as part of the school day. However, the work set is to reinforce the learning within school so children should be able to access the work at home.

To support spelling (Spelling Shed) and times tables (TT Rockstars) in Year 4, we will be using online apps to make these fun and engaging. If you need a login for either of the websites, please let us know and we will get another one sent home.

Topic Homework

The homework bingo can be completed in any order and gives you the chance to get creative and undertake further research on our topic ‘Secrets of the Sarcophagus’.

We would love to see or taste any of your homework, so once completed, please bring it into school and wow us.
