Y4 Parent Worshop - Maths

Last week we had our Y4 parents maths workshop. The slides for this meeting are above and provide a basic overview of the topics we talked about. If you missed the workshop/were unable to attend, I would be more than happy to run through the information with you - just let me know. 

We had our 'Meet the Teacher' session in the 2nd week in September. The slides for this are here - should you have any further questions, please come and have a chat with me. 

Class Information

Extra information:

  • PE days will be on a Tuesday and Friday afternoons (unless affected by weather or other events in school). Friday PE for the summer term is Swimming. 
  • Homework, which will either be on paper or using an internet based platform such as Mathletics will be set on a Friday and due in the following Thursday
  • In addition to their weekly Homework, it is expected that children will read everyday at home. This can be independently but reading with an adult on a regular basis is still very important for pupils in UKS2. Reading Diaries will be checked on a Monday. 



At the beginning of each spelling unit, a note will come home in Reading diaries which will state the spelling rule being focussed on in school as well as a word bank that supports children to practise using the rule. Children will be expected to complete additional research to build their word bank and further their understaning of the rule. At the end of each 'unit' we will then have a spelling challenge where children will be asked to apply their knowledge. (These spelling challenges will not always take place on the same day as some units will be longer or shorter than others.)

Welcome to the Summer term 2023-24!


This term our project is called Stone Age to Iron Age.


We will be exploring a very large period of History which began more than 2 million years ago. We will be learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron age - right up until the invasion of the Romans in 47AD.


We hope to be able to offer two trips during the summer term - detail of which will come on individual letters nearwer the times.  


Our concept question is - Was life better without technology?
