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.


Year 4 Staff


Class Teacher: Miss Christie
Teaching Assistant: Miss Downes

1-to-1 support: Miss Convery 


Homework is given out on a Friday and handed in on a Wednesday.

Spelling Tests are on a Monday.

P.E kit should be in school every day, including tracksuit and trainers for outdoor games in winter. 


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 and will receive a new list.
  • PE this term will be on a Tuesday (outdoor) and a Friday (indoor). Please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit in accordance with the school policy, with them at all times.


As always, please pop in and see us 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, but hopefully one full of fun and exciting opportunities. We are all very eager to get started.

Our topic for the Autumn term is ‘Indian Summer’ and our focus is all about India! Through this topic, we will explore all the treasures and wonders of India and develop an understanding of the culture and religion, as well as it's geographical features. 


You can see from our ‘overview’ that we are planning to cover a lot in the coming months. In science we will be looking at electricity and sound. We will be digging deeper about what life is like in India, comparing things like the climate, the physical features of the landscape, homes, schools etc with what it is like in Tewkesbury. We will also be finding out about Indian style dancing and music, creating our own dances and teaching them to the children in other year groups.

Spring Term


Welcome to the start of the Spring Term! 


Our topic for this term is ‘Veni, Vedi, Vici’ and our focus is all about the Romans! We will be digging deeper into what impact the Romans had on Britain in history, linking this to learning all about settlements in Geography. While in science we will be looking at states of matter!
