Year 4

Welcome to Year 4: Summer 2 
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Class & Malorie Blackman Class 


Mr Ward is teaching Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Class this year and Ms Tildesley is the class teacher in Malorie Blackman Class. 


Welcome to Summer 2. We hope you find the information below useful. This information will help you support your child at home with the organisation of their week and their learning at home. 

Key Times 


Homework consists of: 

Daily Reading 

Weekly Spellings 

Times table Practise 


In year 4, the PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their PE kit on these days. They are not required to wear their school uniform on these days.  


Due to current circumstances we are limiting trips and external visitors but will work to provide enrichment opportunities. 

On Tuesday 20th July we will be meeting the award-winning author of Varjak Paw, SF Said.  

Key Times 

For Year 4, the school day will begin at 8.40, and end at 3.25. Please stick to these timings as each year group has their own start and end time to ensure social distancing. If your child has a sibling within Kent House, please follow the new collection procedure to avoid bursting bubbles.  


What are we learning? 


We will be exploring Azzi In between by Sarah Garland and A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare retold by Georghia Ellinas and illustrated by Jane Ray. We will create our own graphic novel and devise our own playscript of the Dream.  


In Maths we will be focusing on measure, specifically length and volume. We will also look at problem solving, and at consolidating this year’s learning. 


Sound will be our topic in Science in Summer 2. We will be looking at what sound is and how sound travels through different mediums.  


In Geography we will be learning about Rivers and Coasts, looking into key aspects of human Geography including how humans interact with Rivers and protect the Coast.  


Continuing with our enquiry into the Benin Kingdom, we will explore why it was attractive to foreigners and how the kingdom ended.

During Summer term we will be moving on from Athletics to Cricket.  


This half term in Music, we will be listening and appreciating music, understanding theory and developing our performance skills in singing.  


In DT we will be designing making our own healthy sandwich spreads.  


How can I help at home? 

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 3- minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. Practicing times tables frequently is vital, and children should be confident in their times tables by the end of year 4. This is paramount, as the Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check will be undertaken during week 2.  

Children have logins for Times tables Rockstars and Purple Mash– please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts. 

If you have any questions, please talk to Ms Tildesley or Mr Ward, or you can arrange a meeting via Zoom.
