Year 4 2021 - 2022

Mrs Finch

Year 4 Mrs Finch’s Class

Welcome to Year 4 Spring Term 


During the term ahead, our topics will be based on 'Who were the ancient Egyptians?'. We will be learning about the culture, food, civilisation and myths and legends of this ancient culture. 


In English, we will be looking at a range of texts including 'When the Giant Stirred' by  Celia Godkin and 'Zeraffa Giraffa' by Diane Hoffmeyer.. We will also be using visual texts to stimulate our writing including animation films. We will enhance already taught skills and introduce new writing skills to add to our ‘writer’s toolkits’.


Our Maths learning begins this term with a Place Value focus before moving on to look at other operations (especially decimals, multiplication and division). Our focus will again be teaching for mastery using concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to learning to secure fluency and reasoning skills.

Religious Education

In RE this term we will be exploring The Bible making links with Abraham, Moses and David.  In the second half of the term we look at 'Jesus the teacher' and 'Jesus the Saviour'. Both topics will offer children opportunities to reflect on the teaching of our Church and how we are each called to respond to the challenges in our society today.


At home there are many different ways in which you can support your child with their learning this year. Each week, the spelling and maths homework will be set on Google Classroom the maths activity will link in with the learning from the week. There is also Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Shed apps that the children are warmly invited to use as regularly as possible. Year 4 children will also be bringing home details of their personalised spelling lists that will need to be practised using the different spelling strategies that we teach in school. Children should also continue to read every night and to have their reading logged in their reading record each time.


Our P.E days this year will be on Tuesday and Thursday. Children are required to come in to school in their P.E kits on those days. 


As always, thank you for your continued support.
