Welcome to Year 4H
Welcome back, we hope you have had a relaxing summer break and are now recharged and ready to learn lots of new topics in our first term this year.
Please visit this page regularly as it will be updated with photos of our work and links to aid learning. Take a look at our planning documents to find out more about what we will be learning this year.
Our Y4H weekly Routine
Children will require their P.E. kits every Thursday and Friday. They should leave it in school until the half term holiday. This will ensure that they don’t regularly forget their P.E. kit. The children will need either pumps or trainers as the children will participate in outdoor and indoor activities throughout the term. If your child doesn’t have the correct footwear, they may not be able to participate in certain activities, which would have a negative impact on their physical development.
Children will be given a spelling list every Thursday, please ensure your child practices these as they will be tested on these spellings the following Thursday. To support them further, encourage children to form sentences with the words given.
Children will be given learning log challenges each term which is linked to the work they have been covering throughout the topic. This needs to be handed in on specific dates, please take this opportunity to work with your child and tackle the challenges with a creative, imaginative mind that celebrates you child's ideas. Please take a look at our homework grid below.
Reading books will be changed every Thursday. Please ensure that books are signed and reading diaries are in school each Thursday. It is important that your child reads every evening. This could be done independently or with the help of an adult or older sibling.
The children have been given logins for Times Tables Rock Stars. They can access the app at home on a laptop or ipad and even get the opportunity to play against the teachers some evenings. Please encourage your child to access the website at home as this will give them much needed practice of the Times Tables they are unsure of.

In Maths the children will be learning how to solve multiple step addition and subtraction problems using place value up to 10,000. Rounding and comparing numbers in 10s, 100s & 1000s.
In Literacy the children will be reading a story set in a circus called Fizzlebert Stump. The children will be taking part in discussions to see if the characters made the right or wrong decisions. They will also be making their own freeze frames to predict what will happen in the story and for their assessment they will be writing their own diary extract as Fizz.
The children will be mainly covering the grammar objectives for year 4 to extend their learning. Please see our objectives below.
In Science the children will be learning about Rocks and soils. We will be looking at how to order and compare rocks based on appearances and properties. We will investigate erosion and permeability. Looking at how fossils are formed and understand the components of soil.
In Geography the children will be look at the question ‘What makes the Earth Angry?’ We will be looking at locating Volcanoes around the world, learn about the features and layers of a volcano and create a volcano and explain how it works.
