Year 4 is an exciting year and our days will be jam packed with fun learning activities!!


If you have any questions, please always ask.

Mrs Smith and Mrs Clarke



Autumn Term 1

The first topic for Autumn Term is called 'Snap Crackle and Roar' and is based around the book 'There's a Lion in my cornflakes'.


We will be looking at and tasting various cereal brands as well as investigating their advertising techniques.

We will be exploring persuasive writing and after designing our own cereal we will create our own persuasive advert to convince someone to by our brand of cereal rather than a leading brand!!


When exploring the book we learn about a young boy called Eric and the trouble he faces when he saves up coupons on a cereal box to win his very own lion!



Who can get to Bronze, Silver or Gold?


Home learning can take many different forms, if you are part of a club, go swimming, have a hobby or even help around the house this can all go towards your home learning as well as your reading.


As well as all the wonderful things you do outside of school, we would  

   heartLOVEheart it if you could read your school reading book 3 x a week.


To get BRONZE you need to have 15 Home Learning Points.

To reach SILVER you need to have 20 Home Learning Points.

To achieve GOLD you need to have 25 Home Learning Points.


Remember a grown up needs to sign your Home Learning Record, you can bring it in everyday so we can see how much you have been doing at home.






Each week you will have SPaG homework.

This takes the form of spellings.

These spellings usually follow a rule and you will have 3 bonus words to learn as well.

You will be tested on a FRIDAY and new spellings given out the same day, Your RED SPaG book is for you to take your spellings to and from home so you can learn them.

It MUST come into school on a FRIDAY so you can glue in your new spellings.





Please make sure you come to school dressed in the correct PE kit.


Indoor PE is on Wednesdays

Outdoor PE is on Thursdays


As the weather gets colder please remember to dressed accordingly. A tracksuit and suitable trainers will be needed especially when we do PE Outdoors.



Please remember to log on to Timetable Rockstars, in year 4 the time reduces to 3 minutes!!

The more you practice the quicker you will get.
