The children are currently study Azzi In Between - a book about a young girl who has had to flee her home country to escape the tragedy of war. We will be focusing on climate change throughout the year and this half term we have kickstarted this! We have learnt about why every country has different temperatures and we will continue to research and discuss how climate changes around the world and the effects this has on the lifestyle in different countries. We will continue to look at wars around the world and focus our attention onto refugees - something that is currently a harsh reality for many - and allow the children to explore different countries that have experienced war and to learn about the effects this can have on families.

In year 4 the children will be set weekly spelling homework following the national curriculum. These will be uploaded here each week. The children will be tested weekly. We will also be setting weekly My Maths homework that is linked to previous learning. My Maths homework has now been set and your children will have their log-ins in their new homework books! If you require a copy please email myself on the email provided below. The link is below. 













The children have now received their new homework books. They will stick their spellings in their books weekly. They also have some extra tasks that they can complete during the Autumn 1 term (up to October half-term) on their blank page! Below are some ideas that the children can do! 




If anyone has questions or wish to speak to the teachers please use the below email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Reading & Times Tables

In Year 4 the children will continue using the Accelerated Reader programme. Many books are on this programme- so if they are reading a separate book at home they can search for it on the website and see if there is a comprehension quiz.

Times tables knowledge is invaluable and feeds into many areas of the maths curriculum. At the end of Year 4, your child will complete a national multiplication test. We will continue preparing your child for this but please help them with any time tables they are struggling with. They also need to be able to recall the time tables facts quickly as well as accurately.
