Class texts

We will conclude work based on the book 'Jumanji' and then move onto our other two texts for the half term. As part of this work, children will:

  • give and justify opinions
  • make predictions
  • write in role 
  • write  instructions
  • write an adventure narrative


Children will also cover various SPAG (spelling punctuation and grammar) and reading objectives as part of this work. 



- Weekly spelling

- ERIC - Daily reading sessions in class (please ensure that your child has their reading book/diary with them each day).

- Handwriting - Develop a fluent joined handwriting style. 









In Year 4, we will continue to use the White Rose Maths strategy to develop children's mathematical understanding. 

In the second half term the units of work focus on measure/perimeter and multiplication/division.

Additionally, children will regularly practise their times table knowledge, working towards immediate recall of all multiplication and division facts up to 12 times table.  The government have recently introduced a 'times tables check' for year 4 children - this will need to be completed in June.



(Please see Maths Curriculum Page for more information on the Year 4 Programme of Study)


The pupils will be set regular challenges on the Manga High and Active Learn websites. The challenges help the children to practise and consolidate maths concepts, which are being covered during lessons.
