Here you can find out useful information about what your child is doing throughout the year and when they might need certain things (such as P.E. kit) during the week.



Our day to visit the library will change during the week. Teachers will endeavour to remind children to bring their library book into school on these days. 



You will need to bring your P.E. kit into school on Friday.  

On a Friday afternoon year four will be taking part in outdoor learning sessions. For this the children need to bring in a change of clothes appropriate for the weather that day including a suitable change of shoes. This can range from a sunhat and shorts in the warmer months to gloves, waterproofs and wellies when the weather becomes colder. We ask that the children not wear Jeans or clothing that they would not wish to get muddy. The children will be taking part in outdoor learning in all weathers.

 The timetable for outdoor learning in year 4 is as follows:

 Northern Lights – Terms 1 and 4

Sphinx – Terms 2 and 5

La Sagrada Familia – Terms 3 and 6



In terms 1 and 2, Year 4 are going swimming on a Tuesday and Thursday. Make sure you bring in swimming kit (a one-piece costume for girls please) and a towel. 

All of Great Sphinx class will need swimming kit on a Tuesday.

All of Northern lights will need their swimming kit on a Thursday. 

Some of Sagrada Familia class will need their kits on different days. Children will be informed which day they will be swimming. 



Each term a 'homework grid' will be set. This will compromise of various tasks linked to our current topics. Children can complete as many of these tasks as they wish, but all children must complete at least 3 tasks. These can be accessed by the link below:

Our Learning

Term 1 and 2


In terms 1 and 2 we will be studying the texts Beowulf and The Bear and the Hare. When studying Beowulf, we will be focusing on creating  our own mythical creatures and using these for descriptive writing. We will also look at using a variety of different sentence structures.  We will  look at poem features and build up to writing our own Anglo-Saxon kenning poems, then move on to writing a recount of our feast. We will study character dialogue and writing direct speech . This will include varying vocabulary choices  and retelling the narrative of The Bear and the Hare.



In terms 1 and 2 we will be first looking at place value  of whole and decimal numbers and applying this knowledge when developing the use of standard written methods for the four operations (x, -, +, ÷). We will be integrating reasoning skills into each area. This will help with problem solving later in the term and recognising  the skills needed to interpret these.  We will be practicing identifying  and using money, linking this to our English topic.



The topics are:

Working Scientifically —the study of  the skills needed to plan and conduct scientific  investigations.

Sound—the study of  how sound travels and how our ears allow us to receive sound.



Anglo Saxons and Vikings—this links with our English and looks at the every day life of people including music, art, settlements and important historical events.



Alongside our topic and science we will be learning about Anglo-Saxon war chants and communication with drums.

We will also be looking at compositions of music to link with our PE.



We will be beginning our language journey, starting first with greetings, introducing ourselves and giving information about ourselves, such as our age. Later moving onto  talking about our families.



We will be developing our skills within the following;


Invasion Games




In RE we will be exploring these questions:

Why is Jesus inspiring to some people?

Why are festivals important to religious communities?




We will be developing our knowledge of online safety and  learning how to code programmes.
