Year 4

Week beginning 16th March


In Maths 

This week we will be working on measures. We will use our knowledge of multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 to convert measures. We will be revising how many units there are in each type of measurement.

In English 

We are starting our new Talk For Writing unit this week. The children will be learning how to use persuasive language with a view to writing a persuasive speech.


This week, the children will be designing a terminal for their airport. We will be using nets to make shapes and learning about the importance of the planning stage when designing and thinking about scale and proportion.

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 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.

  • Ensuring that they have got their swimming kit ready for their swimming day. 4NM - Mondays starting Monday 6th January, Cedar - Tuesdays, starting Tuesday 7th January and Birch - Fridays, starting Friday 10th January. Swimming will finish the last week of term.

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. We love finding out what they've researched every week.
