Notice Board

1st Half Autumn Term 2018

Welcome to fabulous Year 4! We hope that you enjoyed your summer holidays and feel refreshed and ready to start an action-packed, exciting year ahead. We cannot wait to start teaching you and we have lots of wonderful learning opportunities planned throughout the year.

For the whole of the autumn term our topic is ‘Rampaging Romans’. We will travel back in time to discover all about the Romans and their empire. We will be kicking this topic off with a special Roman workshop, which will take place on Thursday 6th September. Remember to dress-up like a Roman for the day!

Topic Talk

If you have any research, projects or information to share with the class about our topic throughout the term, then we would love to hear about it.


This half term we will be writing mystery and suspense stories, based on Roman adventures. We will also become Roman newspaper reporters and write a newspaper article about the death of Julius Caesar.


This half term we will recap the 4 number operations and methods of calculating. We will also be solving problems involving money and revisit telling the time, using digital and analogue clocks. We encourage the children to practise reading the time as often as possible at home. A watch is a great investment as they move on throughout upper phase.

Keep calm and carry on reading!

We love to read in Year 4! We have put together 20 recommended reads for you to enjoy throughout the year. We also have a wide range of other fantastic books available in our classrooms. Each time you read one of the recommended reads, you will be rewarded with a sticker on your Year 4 bookmark. Throughout the year, you will also receive reading certificates of achievement. We look forward to discussing these brilliant books with you. It is still very important that you try to read every day and to an adult at home at least twice a week. It would be wonderful to have some parent reading volunteers in Year 4 so please let your child’s class teacher know if this is something you would like to do.


Every Friday, the children will receive Maths and English homework that will need to be returned by the following Thursday. Buzz time will still continue as normal on Friday mornings, so keep practising! We may also give you some topic projects to complete throughout the term.


PE lessons will take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, so please make sure that you have your named PE kit in school on these days.  

Parent Partnership

We really believe in good home-school communication, so If you have any concerns or questions throughout the year, then please do not hesitate to ask us, we are always more than happy to help.

We are really looking forward to a wonderful year ahead!

The Year 4 Team Miss Home, Mrs Fawkes and Miss Emslie
