Welcome to Year 4 and hopefully the start of a brilliant year ahead. Your teachers are really happy to have you in our class this year and we know how amazing you will all be! We have got lots of exciting learning, trips and experiences planned throughout the year and can’t wait to share them with you!

This terms topic will be 'THE ROMANS!'

This term, we will travel back in time to study the Romans! We will focus on history and Geography by learning about where the Romans came from and why they came here. We will learn about how the Roman empire formed and the many battles they undertaken to become the powerful tribe they were. We will also explore how they lived and the cultural, social and religious ideas that controlled their daily lives.

In science, we will begin creating circuits to explore how electricity works and will create our own investigations to discover how sound can travel.

PE will be tennis on a Friday.


After really enjoying last term’s text, we will be starting a brand-new book in Year 4! This time we will be aiming to solve a mystery in the ‘Highland Falcon Thief’.

Did you know you don’t need to be an expert in reading to help with your child’s reading?

Have a go reading yourself and modelling your own enjoyment.

Writing Focus

In the new year, our writing will be a diary entry based on the novel ‘Escape from Pompeii’. We will explore emotive language and really expressing how we feel.

Did you know you don’t need to be an expert in writing to help with your child’s writing?

Ask them to type out a text message for you.

Maths Focus

We will start the New Year with using the bus stop method for short division. This will then lead us into fractions where we will make equivalent fractions and use improper fractions.

Did you know you don’t need to be an expert in maths to help with your child’s maths?

If your child has a question that you don’t know the answer to it’s okay for you to say “I don’t know – but let’s find out!”
