Year 4 (4AN & 4RG)

Welcome Back (What's the Big Idea?)

We hope you all had a good holiday and are now all refreshed and ready for the start of this year.
During the year we will be looking at 'Big Ideas', which starts off during Autumn term with Cultures/Ambition and Environments. During the Spring term, we will be looking at Space exploration and Discovery. We finish our Summer term by looking at War, Love, Beauty, Existence, Fate and Democracy.

Educational Trips and Visits

During this year, we have several visits and trips planned, which include Chester Zoo, Stargazing, a theme week and Stone Age workshop.
More details regarding each of these will be provided via MarvellousMe nearer the time.

Maths! No Problem

In Maths, we will be following the Maths! No Problem program.


Each week, your child will have a set of words to learn and remember. Please do spend just 5 minutes a day going over their spellings with them.


The autumn term starts with our online safety sessions, which are part of the Digital citizenship & technology lesson. We follow this up with Making Games.

Books this Autumn Term

Our focus book this term is The Firework Makers Daughter by Philip Pullman.

What Lila wants to be more than anything else in the world is . . . a Firework-Maker!
But firework-making is not just about being able to make Crackle-Dragons and Golden Sneezes. There is also one special secret: every Firework-Maker must make a perilous journey to face the terrifying Fire-Fiend!
Not knowing that she needs special protection to survive the Fire-Fiend's flames, Lila sets off alone. Her friends, Chulak and Hamlet - the King's white elephant - race after her. But can they possibly reach her in time?


In Science, we will be learning about Food chains, Environmental changes and living things.


P.E. takes place every week on Thursday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has their bag with them.


In Spanish, we will be finding out about greetings, instructions, months, dates, seasons and birthdays.
