Welcome to Year 4!
Welcome to Year 4! We are very excited to have you all back in school!
Throughout, if you have any questions or queries, please email
email@example.com and Miss Grantham will reply as soon as she is able.
New Maths Sets
Throughout the school year, we regularly assess our children to make sure we can provide them with the best possible education. This sometimes means that we adjust the maths set that your child is working within. These may change once or twice within a year. This is nothing to worry about and is not 'set in stone' as we regularly adjust to support your child in the best way possible.
If you child comes home to say that they are now in a different maths group, please help them to know that it is so that we can give them the best support possible.
Thank you for your support. If you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact use via the Year 4 email address above.
Miss Grantham, Miss Young and Mr Jessett
Autumn Term PE
Year 4 have both indoor and outdoor PE in a Monday throughout the Autumn term. We will be looking at varies aspects of gymnastics and of football.
From Monday 14th September, please send your child to school wearing their PE kit. This is to avoid the changing process and to reduce the number of items being brought into school, as per our Covid guidelines. Please do not send your child's PE into school any other time.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
Is your child isolating or shielding at home?
If your child is unable to come to school do to having COVID symptoms or because a member of their household has symptoms , we have created a work pack for them to have a go at while off school. This work can be completed at home and does not need to be brought into school. Please feel free to send pictures, or electronic copies, to the Year 4 email address though!
We are always doing lots of reading during school time but if you read a book at home, you can complete the quiz at home instead! Follow the link below to log in!
Our Autumn Topic - 1066
Over the summer, if you have some free time, research 1066 and the Battle of Hastings. We would like you to produce a small piece of work to show what you have learnt. Below, you will find the 'Knowledge Organiser' which we will be looking at throughout the term.
It’s probably the most famous date in English history... we’re travelling back to 1066!
King Edward is dying, so we’ll write job applications for the role of King. We’ll research the events of 1066 using books and online information. What was the Battle of Hastings, and how did it change our country? We’ll discover what life was like for Norman people and dress up as Normans for the day. We’ll be history detectives, looking closely at the Bayeux Tapestry and sketching parts of it. We’ll use different source materials to research Norman castles and online maps to locate them. In English, we’ll write emotive poems about war and get into character to write diary entries. We’ll make a Domesday Book all about our class.
At the end of the ILP, we’ll think about what the Normans did for us and share our learning with you. We’ll finish by embroidering a panel about ourselves.
Help your child prepare for their project
1066 was a year of great change for Britain. Why not visit a castle or fort together to find out who lived there and when it was built? You could also make a life-sized soldier! Take it in turns to draw around each other’s bodies on large pieces of paper and use images of Norman or Anglo-Saxon soldiers to inspire your design. Alternatively, you could work together to write a diary entry as a king who is about to go into battle. How would you feel?
