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 the children have been exploring a variety of activities linked to symmetry. They have been identifying lines of symmetry on regular and irregular shapes before then completing symmetric shapes using a mirror line. For our English sessions, the children focused upon describing a songbird firstly, and then they used these phrases to help them create a superb acrostic poem! They have edited and also redrafted these poems onto special paper as another piece to add to our songbird exhibition. The children enjoyed researching about famous scientists; they found it very interesting seeing how many people dedicated their lives to studying and proving how electricity works. In topic, the children looked at the 7 continents of the world by using an atlas. Once located on the maps, as a class we looked at where Indonesia is located before then identifying the different countries that are found on each continent. 

What are we doing next week?

  • Chester Zoo Trip – Monday 20th May – please bring your child in at 8:30am with a rucksack containing: lunch, drink, hat and waterproof coat.
  • English -  Poetry
  • Maths – Multiplication
  • Science – Electricity
  • Topic – Sing for Songbirds

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. 

We would like to wish Mrs Bullen all the best with her new baby as she has now gone on her maternity leave. 

Thank you for your ongoing support!
