Autumn 1

Welcome to Year 4!

A warm welcome from all the staff in Year 4! We hope you had a lovely summer and we can’t wait to get to know you and your children over the next academic year. We have a full, fun-packed year prepared and are looking forward to sharing with you the work your children will produce.


If you have any queries or worries, contact us via the Junior Office. Please inform us if your child is being picked up by an adult at the end of the school day who is not on the list.

Thank you for your continued support,


Mrs Jones, Mrs Burch and Miss Clements


Incepta Nova (New Beginnings)


English: We will begin Autumn Term looking at Christophe’s Story. This will focus on comprehension skills and improving the children’s writing. This story has strong cross-curricular links with RRSA, P4C and RE. Please encourage your child to read at home regularly. They have the opportunity to choose books from school OR home as well as interacting with books online via our exciting ‘Bug Club’. Their progress needs to be recorded in their Home Reading Record Book and this will be monitored in school.


Maths: During the Autumn term we will be building on the children’s knowledge of number. The children must work on their times table knowledge, so please make sure you practise with them at home.  This will help them with all areas of maths in the classroom. Active Learn, our established on-line maths homework, will be launched next week.


Topic: This term our topic is Incepta Nova (New Beginnings). We will be finding out about the Romans and their legacy, as well as reflecting on our own new beginning in school.  We are planning an exciting trip to Chester – more details to follow.


Science: Our science topic is Changes of State which covers solids, liquids and gases. We would love the children to do a project based on our topic. Be as creative as you can! We will share projects in the second half of Autumn term – dates to follow.


We have P.E. every Wednesday. The children should have a white t-shirt, black shorts and a pair of pumps. Training shoes are allowed for outdoor sports. Please make sure that P.E. kits are in a bag and all items are clearly named.


Brass Lessons: We are fortunate to have Brass lessons every Wednesday in Year 4 as part of Wider Opportunities. It is compulsory that your child brings their instrument to school every Wednesday!
