Notice Board

2nd Half Autumn Term 2018

The children have made a fantastic start to Year 4 and we have been really impressed with their enthusiasm for our Roman topic.

This half term we will be looking at the historical fiction book ‘Escape from Pompeii’. The children will use this story to write their own historical fiction text. We will then be looking at instructional writing, focusing on how to be Roman gladiators and soldiers. 

We will continue to learn more about life as a Roman in our topic lessons.

In maths, we will be learning how to compare and order fractions, find equivalent fractions and be able to add and subtract them. We will then move on to describing the properties of shapes, exploring different ways of measuring and analysing data.

Keep calm and carry on reading!

We love to read in Year 4! We have put together 20 recommended reads for you to enjoy throughout the year. We also have a wide range of other fantastic books available in our classrooms. Each time you read one of the recommended reads, you will be rewarded with a sticker on your Year 4 bookmark. Throughout the year, you will also receive reading certificates of achievement. We look forward to discussing these brilliant books with you. It is still very important that you try to read every day and to an adult at home at least twice a week. It would be wonderful to have some parent reading volunteers in Year 4 so please let your child’s class teacher know if this is something you would like to do.


Every Friday, the children will receive Maths and English homework that will need to be returned by the following Thursday. Buzz time will still continue as normal on Friday mornings, so keep practising! We may also give you some topic projects to complete throughout the term.


PE lessons will take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, so please make sure that you have your named PE kit in school on these days.  

Parent Partnership

We really believe in good home-school communication, so If you have any concerns or questions throughout the year, then please do not hesitate to ask us, we are always more than happy to help.

We are really looking forward to a wonderful year ahead!

The Year 4 Team Miss Home, Mrs Fawkes and Miss Emslie
