Important days

  • Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be returned by Wednesday. If your child needs help with their homework, please speak with their class teacher before the return day.
  • Outdoor games is on a Wednesday. Children need to bring PE kit and trainers. Indoor PE is on a Thursday (both classes) and swimming is on a Tuesday (4Y) and Wednesday (4B). We recommend that PE kit is brought in each Monday and that it stays in school until Friday, in case PE day changes for any reason. 


This half term our topic will be London. We will be focusing mainly on the geographical features of London, including the River Thames and the many famous buildings within London city centre. We will be continuing with the science unit: Animals including Humans.

In art, we will be making a London skyline, using a template of the London skyline and a variety of different materials and mediums.

In music, the children will be learning to play the recorder, fingering for BAG – learning pieces to develop reading and finger fluency with Mrs Ayebare.


In RE, Year 4 will continue to discuss and complete work on the unit: ‘Why do some people think that life is a journey? What significant experiences mark this?



Our two English units this half term will be information texts, using The Manchester Ridgeback as our main text and war poetry, based on the poem Flanders Field. 



The first three weeks of the half term, Year 4 will be comparing, rounding, ordering and recognising, as well as writing decimal equivalents. The final two weeks Year 4 will be focussing on estimating, comparing and calculating money (pounds and pence).
