Year 4

Autumn Term

Welcome to Year 4!




Key Information


PE this term will take place on Wednesday afternoons.  Please ensure that children have a suitable PE kit at all times and that they remove all jewellery for these lessons. Girls with long hair will need to tie their hair back.  We expect all children to be able to remove their own jewellery (including earrings) by themselves and long hair must be tied up. This term we will be playing tag rugby on the field and all children will need trainers for these sessions.

Swimming will take place on Tuesday mornings.

Our topics for this term are ‘The Vikings’ (History), 'India’ (Geography) and ‘Living things’ and ‘Animals including humans’ (Science). In English, our work will be based on the themes Robin Hood and Science Fiction.

Please consult our Autumn 2017 Curriculum Newsletter for more details about the topics covered. 




This term we are looking forward to a trip to Pitsford where we will be participating in sailing, bell boating and raft building. This trip is a great chance for the pupils to get to know their new teachers and classmates. We are also hoping to attend the Northampton into Film festival where the pupils will watch a PSHE based film at the cinema.

We look forward to seeing you at Parents’ Evening.


Home Learning


Year 4 homework expectations are as follows:


Maths – Year 4 pupils will be given a log-in to Mathletics where they can access a variety of learning games and activities. The pupils will be set work to complete on Mathletics by their teachers and can also compete against their class mates collecting scores and certificates as they go!

Reading - Your child will read in a small guided reading group with a member of the Year 4 team once every week. At the end of this session they will be set some further reading to complete as homework and will also be set an additional task to complete in their reading journal.

Spellings - Our weekly spelling test will be on a Monday.  Spelling lessons will take place on a Tuesday for 4CB and a Friday for 4FB. During this lesson the children will be exposed to the spelling focus for that week and a list of spellings to learn at home.  

Creative Homework -This is to be based on our Science and Humanities topics (see above) and is due in after each half term.
