Year 4

Welcome to Year 4


Mrs Cooper, Mrs McRae and Mrs Plumley look forward to working with the children in this class this year.


PE: Year 4 P.E. days will be on a Monday and Thursday this term.  Please make sure the children have their full kit with them on these day (including tracksuit bottoms and trainers for the autumn term). However, children need a full PE kit from Monday to Friday in case we do an extra lesson or activity.


Our Topic for the autumn term is The Romans. 

Please take the time to read the Curriculum Newsletter for the term.




During this year, the children will learn new spelling patterns as well as revise ones already taught.  New spellings will be sent home on a Thursday for a test on the following Tuesday.  In addition to this there is a list of National Curriculum words that the children will be required to spell by the end of Year 4.  Do encourage your children to learn spellings throughout the week.

Year 3/4 National Curriculum Word List


This term the children are invited to complete a project in their own time and at their own pace, which they can present to the rest of the class towards the end of the half term.

For this half term’s project, choose a place from ancient Rome to find out about.

Here are some ideas:

  • The Colosseum
  • The Pantheon
  • The Roman Forum
  • Circus Maximus

All of these places still exist!

You can choose how to present your findings.

Here are some ideas:

  • a poster
  • a booklet
  • a model
  • a painting
  • an information leaflet

Your work will need to be of a high quality. Take care with your presentation.

Towards the end of term you will present your work to the class.



Throughout the week we work on the times tables, practising the ones we know and learning new ones.  Each Friday the children take part in the 3 minute times tables challenge.  For extra fun and practice don't forget that the children can log into Times Tables Rockstars at home too!
