This is what we will be covering this year:

Our topic this term:

 Time Traveller 

This term we will be looking at how landscapes, human geographical features and structures have changed through time. We will be exploring clothes, music, toys, education, leisure and jobs over the years and comparing how people used to live compared with how we live now!        



In year 4, we complete reading, spellings, times tables, a skills sheet and projects.


On a MONDAY we are tested on our times tables. It says in our diaries which one we need to learn and we have 45 seconds to complete 12 questions.


On a TUESDAY we hand in our projects once a term. We can choose from different options but must name our projects when they are handed in. The options are stuck in our diaries and are in the document below.


On a THURSDAY we hand in our skills sheet and get given a new one. One week we have maths and the next week we get English. These sheets help us to practise skills we have been covering in class.


Reading should be completed at least 5 times each week and recorded in diaries. We change reading books when it says finished/end in the diary. Reading diaries must be signed by an adult each time the child reads. The number of times read is counted up on a FRIDAY.


On a FRIDAY we are tested on our spellings. They are stuck in the back of our home-school diaries and are on the document below.

Other Useful Information

  • Our PE days are Mondays and Fridays (Zebras) and Tuesdays and Fridays (Giraffes) but these can change due to weather and events in school. Please make sure kits come in every Monday. They will be sent home on a Friday for washing. 

Some handy questions to ask when listening to children read

These are the calculation methods that we use in year 4.
