Year 4

Welcome to Year 4


I am Mr Fitzgerald  and am delighted to be teaching Year 4 this year. The children have all settled in well and are looking forward to the term ahead. In our class we are supported by Miss Terry.  


This term we will be learning about the Anglo Saxons Picts and Scots.  


We have P.E twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday and will also be having some cricket coaching on Fridays.


Summer Term Learning

This term in English we will be focusing on a variety of sources from different genres and then doing our own independent writing based around this. We will focus on 2 fiction narratives as well as a non - fiction newspaper and poetry.


In Maths we will be continuing with our number work which includes topics such as multiplication, division, word problems, and fractions.


In science our first topic will be living things and their plants, followed by classification.


In computing we will be using animation. We will then look at writing for different audiences.


Our topic for this term is called Anglo Saxons, Picts and Scots.


In Art the children will be sketching, painting and embossing.


We will be taking part in the PSHCE topics of ‘Relationships’ and 'Changing Me.'


In R.E we are focusing on the beliefs within Buddhism and Christianity.


We have P.E with our Sports Coach, Mr. T, every Tuesday.


In order to support your child at home with their learning please encourage them to:


  • Be responsible readers and read every night for at least 20 minutes. This should be recorded in reading records every day either by an adult's signature or with a comment from the child about what they have read.

  • Complete all the home learning tasks set

  • Learn Year 3/4 (copies are in their reading records)

  • Learn their times tables up to 12x12 by using times table Rockstars

  • Complete their Lexia minutes


All of the curriculum information can be found on the curriculum page on the website. If you would like to speak to me about your child's learning please contact the office and I will be in contact. Please check the website regularly as we will be updating it with all of the wonderful learning that has been taking place.
