Home-school support

In Year 4, many children can access free choice reading books from our class or whole school library. Children will be heard read as often as possible in school but we encourage them to read a few pages every night at home. Please record when your child has read to you in their reading record. Reading logs will be checked each Friday.

The children also have access to ReadingPlus, we would like for the children to aim to access this for 15 minutes each weekday evening and they will be given time in school, regular use of this site will give them the opportunity to extend their understanding of different types of text, vocabulary and comprehension.

Please make sure your child brings in their reading record and reading books to school everyday. 

Children also have access to Timestables Rockstars- an online learning platform to support with rapid recall of known multiplication facts. This software will support the children as they head towards completing their Multiplication Check in the summer term. Please ensure your child accesses Timestables Rockstars for 5 minutes each day. 



Our English lessons are based on a half termly book.

This half-term, children will be exploring 'Gorilla' by Anthony Browne and learning all about effective ways to add detail and description to their sentences. 

Grammar focuses will include; noun, phrases, fronted adverbials and complex action sentences. 

Children will also explore a range of spelling patterns across the half-term to support with their understanding of specific spelling terminology. 


Below are the areas of maths that we will be covering this half term:

•Problem solving and reasoning.
Children will also have regular access to multiplication and division strategies during 'Early Bird Work' each day. 



As suggested in the title, this unit is all about 'sound’. Learners will look at sound vibrations and how sounds travel through different mediums. Children will then think about the sounds they hear which our pleasant and unpleasant, as well as being safe with sound by understanding how to insulate sounds. During the unit, learners will get the chance to design and build their own sound-making devices and to test materials which are good at insulating sounds.


What was our Village like in the past?

In this theme, children will learn about how buildings and homes have changed over time. The children will also explore Hale Lighthouse and how it has changed over time.Children will use Digimaps to explore the town in the past and the present. The children will also go on a walk around the village, observing the different landscapes and use compasses to find different parts of the village.



Our Christian value this half term is friendship.

Children will learn about the story of 'David and Goliath' and the qualities David had in his life. The children will also explore their own goals and think about what qualities they will need to possess in order to acheive their goals. 


Children will be taking part in football lessons this half-term. The children will be developing their hand-eye co-ordination as well as their technique and control over the ball. The children will also take part in some competitive games in small groups.


Children will have use of the in-class computers and iPads. We will be developing knowledge of the risks of their online lives and skills when using online services .
