4M - Mr Moore

Welcome to 4M!

Year 4 20/21, I bet you can't believe it! It has been a very different year so far but I must say how excited we are to have you all back safely in school. This your page and will provide you with all the information you will require as well as finding out about the exciting things we get up to. 

Check out our Learning Leaflet below to find out about your new topic and remember to continue learning at home.


Important Information



Please ensure your child comes into school in their P.E. Kit on the following days:




Friday (Outdoor PE)


Swimming will be on a Monday and will begin on Monday 14th September and will run for 11 weeks. Your child will get a letter before the swimming lessons commence.  Please ensure your child brings a swimming kit for their swimming lessons.


Home Learning

Please ensure your child completes at least 4 pieces of home learning a week. This could be anything from reading a couple of pages of their book, practising their times tables or attending a club. For each piece of home learning, your child will receive a merit which can contribute to a home learning award each half term. Please make sure you record their home learning in their home learning diary provided and ensure it is signed and dated.

*Please note, due to COVID restrictions, children will change their reading book on a Monday. These must then be kept at home and brought in on a Friday so that they can be cleaned and quarantined over the weekend. Thank you for your understanding with this during these difficult times.

15 merits = Bronze award

20 merits = Silver award

25 merits = Gold award




Times Tables Rockstars - Thee children will be tested on their times tables knowledge four times a week. Please ensure you help your child to practise their times tables and ensure they log in to Times Tables Rockstars daily as they will be given certain times tables to practise in line with the tests.

SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) Friday - There will be a SPaG test every Friday. Please ensure your child completes their SPaG homework which will be given out on a Friday in their SPaG book.


Please ensure your child accesses Times Tables Rockstars, Letter Join, Bug Club and Spelling Shed at home as this will really help to support their learning and prepare them for middle school.

Autumn 1 Topic - Snap, Crackle & ROAAAR!


Have you ever collected coupons from a cereal box? Maybe you were saving them for a book or toy? Well, when Dan and his brother decide to collect 100 coupons so that they can have their very own lion, they assume the task will be easy enough. How wrong can you be?! We will be reading There's a Lion in My Cornflakes, looking at advertising, writing persuasive letters and designing our own cereal!
