Welcome to Year 4!

We have been doing some fantastic work lately. Take a look at what we have been up to and explore our website!

Friday 21st June 2019


High Street Year 4 Weekly Newsletter

Our topic this term is ‘Sing for Songbirds’

What a fantastic week we have had in Year 4. 

What have we been doing this week?

This week we have been exploring methods of division and how to apply them in problem solving and reasoning questions. In English, we have been using the book ‘Gorilla’ by Anthony Browne as a stimulus for our lessons. The children have looked at patterns, likes, dislikes and puzzles about the book before then writing their personal book review of it on Friday. Next week we will be planning our own story where an animal takes a character on a journey. We have completed our placards in art so they are ready for display on WOW evening. In preparation for the WOW evening, the children have been learning the ‘Sing for Songbirds’ song written by Chester Zoo for their Songbird Campaign.

What are we doing next week?

  • English -  Narrative
  • Maths – Rounding
  • Science – Living Things
  • Topic – OS Maps and Symbols
  • Y3/4 Sports Afternoon – Thursday 27th June
  • Sports Week – please ensure your child has their full PE in school

What can you do at home to support our learning at school?

  • Ask your child what they have done at school each day
  • Sharing your child’s reading book with them and write a comment
  • Practice times tables up to 12x12 using Times Table Rock stars.
  • Ensure your child is completing their homework on a weekly basis.


PE kits should be in school every day and should include t-shirt, shorts and indoor and outdoor footwear.

Homework is given out on a Friday and is to be returned on a Wednesday.

The weekly spelling test will now take place on a Tuesday and new spellings will also be given out on the Tuesday afternoon after the spelling lesson.

Nuts - There are a few children in Y4 and throughout the school who have a severe allergy to nuts. We therefore kindly ask that you provide your child with a nut free snack and lunch. 

Outdoor PE is on Wednesday afternoons and indoor PE is on Fridays. 

Thank you for your ongoing support!
