Class texts 



Krindlekrax by Philip Ridley 



We will begin work based on the book Krindlekrax.  As part of this work the children will:


  • make predictions
  • infer characters' thoughts and feelings
  • retrieve and recall information
  • write a school report
  • write a non chronological report
  • write a narrative from a different character's perspective.


We will then move onto Journey to Jo'burg by Beverley Naidoo


The children will:

  • make predictions
  • summarise
  • retrieve and recall information
  • infer characters' thoughts and feelings
  • write an informal letter in role.
  • write a new chapter (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 first half term the units of work focus on multiplication/division, area and fractions.  In the second half term units of work focus on fractions/decimals.

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)


We have recently launched TT Rockstars in school which is an excellent tool to help children learn their times tables.  All children should have brought home their log in and password - please ask if you need any help.
