Our topics this term are "What are the key features of a river?" - where we learn about the largest rivers in Britain and the different parts of a river - and "What were the achievements of the Ancient Egyptian civilisation and how were they different to those of Britain?" where we examine the lives of the Ancient Egyptians.

Should you need to contact us about your child and their learning, please use the year 4 email address Please note that we will try to check these emails two or three times a week and respond when we are able to.  If you need to contact school about a more urgent matter, please contact the office as usual.


Each week, children will be given a list of spellings to learn plus a task to complete with these words.  They will also be expected to use Spelling Shed to practise these words. There will also be a weekly MyMaths task to complete online.  Some weeks there will also be additional topic homework in order to enhance their learning in areas like art, history or geography. 

Homework will be set every Friday and should be completed and handed in by the following Thursday.

Please support your child in completing homework and returning their homework book on time each week. 

Children should continue to use Times Tables Rock Stars regularly to keep their recall of times tables sharp.  We will check their progress on this regularly and celebrate successes whenever we can.

Handwriting Practice

We will be having focused handwriting sessions in school to aid the children in their learning of this key skill. Any support you can provide at home is much appreciated.
