Spring Term – First Half

Welcome back, we hope you have all had a fantastic Christmas and are ready to start the Spring term.

Our topic this term is India Summers.  We have lots of exciting lessons planned and kick off with an India Day where the children will have the opportunity to explore Indian culture including food tasting, making Diwa lamps and learning Bollywood dance moves.

In English we will be exploring journey stories, persuasive writing, traditional stories and explanation texts. Some of the writing will be based around our topic and we shall be supporting the children to further develop their ideas. 

It is really important for parents to continue their help with reading, spellings and recalling of times tables at speed.

In Music the children will have the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument lead by Berkshire Maestros.

We look forward to an exciting learning term, filled with fun activities and new challenges.

The Year 4 Team Miss Emslie Mr Clark

Learning Environment

Our classrooms are designed to encourage and support learning. Look out for the cosy reading corner, Growth Mindset displays and encouraging behaviour chart. Keep a look out for your work being put on display! Will it make the Star work wall?



This year the children will receive an English writing or spelling task alongside a maths task every Friday to be completed for the following Friday. Please continue to learn the Year 3/4 spellings as the children will be tested termly. Click here for a copy of those Year 3/4 words.

Extra Information

Children should be reading to an adult at least three times a week. Please record in your child’s reading record book when they have done this! Just a quick comment or signature will be fine. As they become more independent in their reading, they are encouraged to write their own comment.

We will continue to have a weekly Buzz Time challenge. As they achieve each stage they shall receive a certificate.


P.E will be on a Monday and a Wednesday. The children are expected to have their P.E kits in every Monday along with suitable shoes and hair ties for long hair.
