Welcome To Year 4! We hope you have had a wonderful Summer break and are ready to get stuck into some new learning.


We have lots of exciting things planned for this term including our new History topic.

We are jumping in our time machine and heading back to 400AD. The Romans have left Britain and in doing so, Britain face the threat of invasion. Invaders and Settlers from all over Europe have their sights set on our fertile land, but who will get their hands on it? More importantly, we will be asking ourselves, What impact did invasions have on Britain?

This term, we are going to be reading How to Train your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. If you have a copy at home, bring it into school and read along with us.

Can Hiccup pass the Dragon Initiation Programme with a toothless dragon and fight the seadragonus giganticus maximus before it gobbles up every Viking on the Island of Berk?

Don't forget to have your reading records in school every day 

We will be checking reading records each week to ensure that children are reading at least 3 times a week and having their reading record regularly signed by an adult. For every 3 signs, children's name goes in to our reading raffle to be in with a chance of winning a prize. 


National Times Table Test

In June, Year 4 children will be taking part in the National Times Table Test - This is an online test and children are given 6 seconds to answer a range of mixed times table questions, Alongside their weekly homework and reading, we expect year 4 children to practise their times tables (in order, out of order and division facts) on a daily basis up to their 12 times table ready for a weekly test. We will also be checking TTRockstars on a daily basis to monitor progress.
