Year 4

Weekly Overview

The class have continued to work hard this week.

In English, we are thoroughly enjoying reading our class book, Hetty Feather. I continue to be impressed with the confidence and fluency of our shared reading. The class have produced some excellent non fiction writing and SPaG activities based on the text.

We continue to enjoy our daily Verbal Reasoning activities particularly the puzzles.

In Maths we have continued to look at mass, reading from scales and rounding to the nearest kg from one and two decimal place. We have also completed work on finding square numbers. I have been incredibly impressed how the class have used their multiplication facts in their new learning. We have continued with our new daily multiplication challenge and would like the class to continue to work on rapid recall each throughout the half term.

I have been impressed with the continued positive attitudes and enthusiasm from all the class and their willingness to learn.

Well done Year 4!


It is recommended that children also read daily, this can be recorded in to your child’s reading record. Reading regularly can not only improve word recognition and fluency, but can also assist children in their writing during class. Therefore, children will be expected to read at least 2 stage books per week (1 if they are on the thicker books from later stages). Reading books (and reading records) should be the only things going home and returning to school along with water bottles.

P.E. will be on Friday, so please ensure children attend school wearing their P.E. kits.  For P.E. children need to bring suitable clothing for the weather as we will attempt to be outside providing it is not raining heavily. Tracksuit bottoms and fleeces can be worn. Please refer to the school email for a full list of clothing options.

Early morning work begins at 08:30 each day and will be spent on tasks that the children have needed further support with. Therefore, I would encourage the children getting in to school on time, to ensure they do not miss any learning.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via telephone or an email to school.
