Welcome to Year 4!
Raging Rivers and Magnificent Mountains!
In the Summer term, we will be learning about rivers and volcanoes during our topic lessons!
We will discover how mountains are formed and the journey of a river from the source to the mouth. We will find out about some of the mountain ranges and rivers from around the world.
We will also learn about dams and the impact that they have.

Start and finish times
8:45am – 3:00 pm
Please do not arrive earlier than this time (unless arriving with siblings).
P.E will be taught on Mondays and Thursdays. The children need to come into school wearing their P.E. kit on these days and do not need to bring their uniform to change into. Please ensure your child has appropriate clothing for P.E outside. Please note that long hair must be tied back and earrings removed. Thank you.
Homework is set every Friday and is expected back in by the following Wednesday to be marked. The weekly homework will consist of online Maths activities (My Maths and TT Rockstars), spellings (to be tested on a Wednesday) and reading. In addition, each term the children will have optional Nando’s Challenges that can be completed.
In Year 4, the children will have the opportunity to change their reading books on a Tuesday and a Thursday. In the meantime, we suggest that the children read their school books several times in order to encourage fluency and accuracy. The children also have access to Fiction Express www.fictionexpress.co.uk which contains a variety of online books that can be read at home.
