Hello and welcome back to our final term in Year Four,

We hope that you enjoyed the Easter break and are well rested and ready to work hard, for the last term as year four! We have lots of exciting things planned for this half term and we are certainly excited to see what you can do. Our main topic this term is  Planet Earth which will be looked at within English, Art and DT. For your final term, there will be a huge emphasis on handwriting, making sure you are able to use a clear and neat cursive script ready for year five.


PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday. This term we will be focusing on athletes, rounders and OAA. You need to have a labelled PE kit in school at all times. It can be taken home to be washed half-termly. 


Homework, Spellings and Reading

This year, Learning Log homework and Maths will be given out on a  Friday and returned on a Wednesday. Occasionally, we may give out a piece of homework that lasts for a longer period of time, such as a mini-project. Reading books need to be changed at least once a week and don’t forget to bring your Reading Journal and book in everyday so that we can keep track of the books you are reading and so you can earn raffle tickets! You need to continue to learn your times tables at home as well as covering them in class because there will be a times table test every Friday.  Finally, spellings for the entire term will be glued into Learning Logs during the first week of term and I expect people to be practising these week by week.

Times tables 

There will be a huge push on times tables this year in preparation for the statutory multiplication tables check in June 2024.  The multiplication tables check is an on-screen check consisting of 25 times tables questions. Your child will answer 3 practice questions before moving on to the official check, and will then have 6 seconds to answer each question. On average, the check should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. To support you in learning your times tables, you will have access to Times Table Rockstars at home and will be set a weekly times table to learn.

Water Bottles

It is really important that you bring in your own water bottle every day. You must take it home each evening for it to be washed. Normally we would have extra cups for children in the classroom, but we are no longer allowed to do this as it increases the risk of cross contamination. Please bring your own, named bottle each day. You will be allowed to refill it throughout the day, if you drink all your water.
