This is what we will be covering this year:

Our topic this term:

 The Ancient Greeks

This term we will be  learning about what life was like in Ancient Greece, where the Greeks came from and how their society was structured. We will also be finding out about what impact Ancient Greece had on modern Britain and how we can learn about the past from historical sources and artefacts.

This is what we will be learning about this term:



In year 4, we complete reading, skills sheets and projects. We learn our times tables and spellings in school every day but still need to practise them at home too.


On a TUESDAY we hand in our projects once a term. We can choose from different options but must turn them in via Google Classroom by the date given. The options, date and classroom code are stuck in the back of our diaries and are in the document below.


On a WEDNESDAY 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 complete an online Accelerated Reader quiz in school or at home when we have finished our book to show how well we understood what we read. Reading diaries must be signed by an adult each time a child reads. The number of times read is counted up on a MONDAY.


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. Our marked test will be returned on a piece of paper.

Other Useful Information

  • Our PE days are Thursday and Friday for Giraffes and for Zebras and will take place outside, weather permitting. Please make sure children come in wearing full PE kit (trainers, black leggings/joggers, plain white t-shirt and red school jumper) on these days. Earrings must be removed or taped up and hair must be tied up if it can be.
