Welcome to Year 4

Welcome to the summer term!


We hope you have all had a fantastic Easter break and that you are ready to start a new term of learning in year 4.


We will be learning about Rivers in geography, states of matter in science and in English, we will be writing an information text, to name just a few! 


We are looking forward to a fun packed term and we look forward to all the opportunities we will be giving you to learn :)


Meet the Year 4 team


Miss. Le Masurier will teach 4KLM.

Mrs Walsh and Mr Jarvie will teach 4WJ.

Miss. Claughton will teach 4KLM every Tuesday morning and 4WJ on a Wednesday afternoon.


Our teaching assistants are Mrs Baker and Mrs Lewis

Underpinning all our learning and time together is our school values, they are also linked to our Dojo rewards. We will learn about and celebrate examples of each value daily.


Our value for this term is... unity.


This can be shown by: Working together regardless of who it is with, being a good friend and by welcoming new children.


We will be discussing what it means to show unity, as well as these 2 key questions.


What does belonging mean to me?

What can I do to make others feel that they belong? 




Reading is a priority at Salisbury Road, therefore we will be practising our reading skills 5x a week using VIPERS to help us. In the classroom, we will use a mixture of choral, echo and ping pong reading, this will enable us to become confident, fluent readers.


Please remember to read at home four times a week to an adult. It is also really important that you record your reading in your reading record so your teacher can see how much you are reading at home. If you have read four times in a week, you will earn a raffle ticket for the reading raffle and have the chance to win a brand new book!









This term, the children are going to be writing an information text, looking a poetry as well as creating our own creative write. 


Throughout their learning, the children will focus on deepening their knowledge even further on fronted adverbials, prepositions, metaphors, subordinate clauses and expanded noun phrases. 



This term we will be continuing with our learning of multiplication and division facts, decimals, fractions, perimeter and symmetry. 



Please don't forget to keep practising your times tables - these are VERY important! If you get your sheet signed for going onto TTRS 4 times-a-week, you will earn a raffle ticket for a wonderful prize.

Challenge yourself to beat your classmates on TTRS.



This half term we will be learning all about states of matter


The children will be focusing on this content...


  • The different substances in their different forms (solids, liquids and gases).
  • How substances can change from one state matter to another.
  • The process of melting, evaporation and condensation.
  • How substances change state at different temperatures.



This term we will be learning about rivers. Our big question is... How does a river change on its journey to the sea?


As Geographers, we will be identifying the main stages of the water cycle and how the process works. We will then focus out learning on rivers: the parts of a river, rivers around the world and rivers in the UK.


After half term, we will be studying the different climate zones around the world and looking at biomes and vegetation belts as part of this. We will also be using and understanding the words longitude, latitude and the equator.








Homework will be given to the children every Tuesday and will either consolidate their learning in school or extend their learning further. It will be expected back to school on the following Monday. 


Sometimes, the homework may need to be completed via teams and other times it may be on paper or be a project to complete. 


If you ever have any concerns about your child's homework, please speak to their class teacher. 

Year 4 Spelling


Children will receive weekly spellings with their test taking place on a Monday. 

Each week, they will have six spellings which follow the current rule they are learning and the other four words will comprise from the statutory list from the national curriculum. 


We will teach the children strategies which will help them to learn their spellings. 


** For the children having phonics sessions, they will be given a list of spellings by their phonics teacher each week**




4KLM will have PE on a Wednesday afternoon and 4WJ will have it on a Monday afternoon. However, this occasionally may change so please ensure they have their PE kit in school every day.
