Welcome to Year 4!

Mrs Durkin and Mrs Desbois are the teachers in 4J.

Mrs Fury and Mrs Scuderi are the teachers in 4A.

Mrs. Moran is the Teaching Assistant who will be working between the year group.

In Maths, this term we will be looking at Place Value, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division and Measurements. We will continue with the Singapore Maths Method, using a Concrete-Pictorial- Abstract approach. The use of word problems will encourage your children to use high-order thinking techniques and applied skills in their work.

In Literacy, we will be following the Power of Reading scheme. As the class reads, we will use the text to explore vocabulary, language, imagery and literary techniques. We look at the grammar used and they will use this as a prompt for their own creative writing later on. Some of the texts we will be looking at this term are ‘Leon and the Place Between’ and Shakespeare’s’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.

In RE we will be covering a different each half term, covering the life of Jesus and the history and teachings of the church.

We encourage the children to read daily and take some responsibility for commenting on what they have read in their reading records but do ask that you sign it every night. Please listen to your child read as well as reading to your child. It is important to discuss the books they are reading by asking relevant questions.

Each week, the children will receive either maths or literacy homework. Occasionally the homework may relate to Topic or R.E. work we are covering. Alongside this, there will be weekly spellings and times tables to learn. Spellings will be given out with the homework and your child will be tested the following on Tuesday.

Times tables will be tested on a Thursday.


Children have P.E. on Wednesdays and Thursdays.


Library day for 4A and 4J is Tuesday.
