Parents can contact teachers through the blue organiser - just make sure, please, that your child knows there is a message to hand in.  You can also use our e mail addresses, which will be monitored  on week days during term time and we will endeavour to reply within 72 hours.  Please may we remind you that verbal messages at collection  and drop off times are welcome if brief. If you need more time to discuss something, pop a note in the organiser  to let us know you need a longer appointment or drop us an e mail to say so and we can ensure your query gets our full attention.

Tattenhall Trip May 2024

Still image for this video
Here are some slides to help you have a better idea of where we are staying at Tattenhall.

A snapshot of Summer Term




We are focussing on non-fiction text- writing instructions of how to make a bug hotel  and a recount of our trip to Tattenhall.





We will be focussing on Multiplication tables, understanding and manipulating relationships between multiplicative relationships.

By the end of Year 4, the children are expected to know all multiplication facts to 12 x12 and so this key knowledge will also have considerable emphasis throughout the whole year. Children will need to make this a priority in their homework.



In Science we will learn the seven life processes by which we can identify a living thing, using the acronym MRS NERG.   Children will explore classification by using a branching key. Later we will be looking at the school environment and considering the habitats that can be found here and how we could make changes to encourage pollinators.  



We will be looking at how the Anglo Saxons replaced the Romans as the dominant culture of England, up to 1066.

Investigating timelines and maps we will place the Anglo Saxons in context, and look at how their culture might still affect us today.


Art & DT

In art, we are focussing on the work of Jim Done - looking at positive and negative images, using different ways to draw lines and shade. We will have a pop of colour which bows to his pop art influences. 

We will be looking at sculpture and using different techniques to create a 3d object, linked to our study of insects in Science.



We will be learning, at an appropriate age related level, about changes in our bodies as we mature. We will continue to learn about our emotions and feelings, what is a healthy relationship and valuing differences. We will also learn about the effects of alcohol on the body.


P.E Days

Monday - Basketball 

Wednesday - Tennis

On these days only, the children should come to school in their P.E. kit. Earrings removed.




Don't  forget you can logon at home and use Purple Mash!





Weekly homework is now set electronically on Teams. It is set on a Friday and should be handed in (on Teams) by the following Wednesday.  If you have difficulties in accessing homework on Teams this year, please let class teachers know so we can help. Homework is not set in the first and last week of half term.



Please, please do continue to read to your child and to hear them read aloud. Your child has been given a day of the week  on which they should bring their books for changing, which is written in their organiser.  In class, there is a wide selection of books available for their reading pleasure and children also are able to borrow books of their choosing from the KS2 library to read at school.  It is fantastic to hear children telling us what they read at home and even that they have been inspired by our class book choices to find the same or similar books in the library or book shop. Please send organisers and reading books in everyday.


Year 4 Statutory Times Tables Assessment


This year,  all children will complete the times tables assessment. They will have the opportunity to see how the test works by firstly having a practice session. To prepare for this test, we have set times tables as homework all year long, whilst keeping tables a priority in class at school as part of the Maths curriculum and having some time allocated in school for using TT Rockstars or Purple Mash.  The Purple Mash times tables app has the most similar format to that of the test itself and it is worth using this to practice.
