Welcome to Mr Taylor's Year 4 Class Page


Welcome Back - It’s going to be a great year!

We hope that you have all had a lovely summer holiday and are now looking forward to all of the exciting learning opportunities that await you as you begin your journey in year 4.

This term we will be learning all about life long ago during the reign of the Romans, following this we will discover how the eruption of Pompeii affected everyday citizens and develop our understanding of the geology of mountains and volcanoes – It will prove to be an explosive term!


This term we will be developing our writing skills, through newspaper writing and using historical facts to create historical stories. While we will be learning new grammar and writing techniques, it is vitally important that we focus on handwriting and presentation – I wonder, who will be first to get their Pen Licence?



We will focus this term on Place Value and written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. As all pupils are required to know their multiplication facts up to 12x12 by the end of year 4, we will keep this as a focus for the whole of the year. As a school we use TTRS and we will be celebrating the children’s success in class – please practice at home – as this is the key to knowing these facts inside and out. It is truly amazing how much easier the children find maths when these key facts are learnt.

PS – Parents – Don’t be afraid – you too can learn these facts with your children!



Homework will be set each week and will mostly consist of an English or Maths activity lasting no longer than about 20 minutes,  in addition to reading, spelling practice and numberwork on most days.  Once or twice a term, we will also embrace opportunities to set more creative homework tasks  – so get your glue and paint at the ready!



Please read – Every day!

While I would love all children to read daily - what is most important is that children develop a love of reading and choose to read for pleasure, as a school we encourage to read for 10-20 minutes on most days. We continue to use AR and I would like pupils to aim to take at least one book per week. Please come and have a chat if you have any questions linked to the AR scheme of ways to engage your child with reading at home.

We will be learning spelling daily in school with a test once a week on a Friday. These words will be linked to the year 4 spelling patterns as well as the year 3/4 NC required word lists. See links below.



We will have PE twice a week on a Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure that PE kit is in school at the start of each term.

We are all looking forward to the term ahead and know that we will have a fantastic time. Please be assured that if you have any questions or concerns we will be always willing to listen and will do our best to ensure that your child is happy in school.
