Year 4

Welcome to Autumn Term in Year 4!


Class 4’s project for the Autumn term is ‘Why did the Vikings think Britain was ‘Great’?’ 

We will begin with our amazing hook days making Viking shields, a Viking Longboat and writing our names in Viking Runes!

Our class novel is ‘Viking Boy’ which is all about a young boy and the challenges he faces in Viking times!

As ever we love to see the amazing project homework coming in to class. Please remember that your child must complete 6 Project Homework tasks over the term in addition to their weekly homework. Please ask if your child needs any help or resources.

We would love to see lots of reading bookmarks in Class 4. The children get a bookmark every time they read 30 times, progressing through the colours of the rainbow. Please listen to your child read between 3 and 5 times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record.

Your child will be given a spelling test and a maths madness test and a times table test every Friday morning, so they need to be practising these throughout the week.

Your child is given homework to complete every Friday and this will need to be returned to school the following Thursday if not before.

PE lessons are every Wednesday afternoon for the first half term, so please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school each week, including outdoor trainers and a hoody if needed.

If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please do not hesitate.

Thank you,

Marcus Clarke
