Welcome to Year 4


Miss Gray is our teacher.

This term our project question is ‘How can we learn about the past?’ We will be using our skills as historians to answer this question and to find out about life in the Stone Age. We will be reading Stone Age Boy and Wolf Brother as well as other texts. Our published work will be exhibited in a venue outside of school (more details to come). The big ideas we will be exploring are: community, sustainability, resilience and adversity.


In Year 4 homework will include:

  • A spelling rule to investigate. The rule will have been taught in our SPAG lesson on Monday and will be tested on Friday. Children will record their scores in their homework books.
  • A grammar or punctuation question to answer
  • Times tables practice

Homework will be given out on a Monday and is due in on a Friday. Merits will be awarded for super effort and great work.

Spelling: Spellings will be set as part of your child’s weekly homework.  Each week will focus on a specific spelling rule/pattern.
