Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to the Year Four page. Here we aim to share useful information that you can refer back to, we also want to celebrate and share the children’s learning with you. Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. Spellings are uploaded to Teams at the beginning of each half term which will be tested on Fridays. Maths homework will be set on Purple Mash every Friday and is due the following Thursday (please see me if a paper copy is required). Please ensure your child brings their reading record to school every day where we will change their book if they have finished it home.

Year Four Spellings
Below are the Year 3/4 statutory spellings. These are covered through the weekly spelling tests but any additional practise will help the children become confident with their spellings. Repetition and application is key when it comes to children remembering their spellings. Thank you for your ongoing support with this.
Year Four Learning
In Art this topic, we have been studying the artist Pieter Bregual and his painting Children’s Games. We investigated the different games demonstrated in the painting, discussing how this is different from today. We then designed and created our own 21st Century versions of the painting, featuring our favourite games.
In English, we have been reading the book Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo. So far we have written letters as if we are King Hrothgar begging for Beowulf’s help in defeating the dreaded Grendel. We have also written setting descriptions using similes and metaphors to describe the derelict Heorot and a diary entry detailing the events of Beowulf’s adventures.
Year 4 love doing the ‘Daily Mile’!
