Areas of learning this term.

Year 4 is a stimulating year where independence grows. High expectations enable children to take pride in their work and begin to critically assess their own writing.

Class Teacher: Mrs Healey

P.E. will be on Fridays. Homework is uploaded onto See Saw on Friday and should be completed by Wednesday.

Spelling Tests are on a Monday. Please see the full list of Year 4 spellings attached.


Please help your child by discussing their topics and please do not hesitate to let us know if there is any way that you can support us within the class. Here are some of the things you can help your children with:


  • Hearing your child read is so important as this helps them to access the curriculum. Many of the children will read and record in their reading records independently however we feel that it is still important that they read to an adult. Please can you record when you have listened to them as they will not be able to change their book unless there is a comment.
  • Times tables are very important for the children to access other areas of the maths curriculum. It is very important that they build on what we are doing in school at home. This can be done through a range of interactive games which can be accessed through a computer or tablet to help improve speed of recall and confidence.
  • Help your child learn their weekly spellings. They will be tested each week.


Please feel free to email the school office or myself directly if you have any questions or worries.

Autumn Term


Welcome to the start of the Autumn Term! Year 4 is going to be a busy year with lots of catching up but will be one full of fun and exciting opportunities. We are all very eager to get started.


Our topic for the Autumn term is ‘I am a warrior’ and our focus is all about the Romans! Through this topic, we will explore Ancient Rome and the Romans in Britain. As part of our topic we are hoping to visit the Corinium Museum to find out more about Roman life in Britain and especially in Gloucestershire.
