Year 4

Week beginning 18th November

In Maths 

This week, we will be using column subtraction to subtract 4 digit numbers. We will then be applying this by solving reasoning problems. We will be practising more written methods ensuring we are especially careful when choosing the correct operation.

In English 

We have started our new topic in Talk For Writing. The children will be learning their chunks, and looking at what makes the text effective to the reader, before applying some of these skills to short burst writing.


The children will be learning about the water cycle and then using this to research about how this water is then collected, cleaned and transported to their tap.

You can help your child by

  • Continuing to practise their Maths passport objectives with them and revise all their times tables knowledge.

  • Listening to them read at least three times a week. Please make sure you also sign their planner when they have read. It's also really beneficial when you to read to your child.

  • Practise their spelling skills. They have spellings in their planners that they should learn. Generally these spellings are grouped and relate to a particular spelling pattern or rule.

Learning Log

The Year 4 staff are looking forward to a  variety of work in the  A to Z of interests. Please keep encouraging and supporting your child with this homework, which is due in on Thursdays. 

My Maths will also be set weekly, although I realise they also now have times table rockstars.
