Welcome to Year 4 where this year will be full of fascinating activities and things to learn! We are supported in our learning by Mrs Fairhurst, Mrs Rattigan and Mrs Dearing.

This half term, our Science topic is Electricity. We will do lots of experiments creating different circuits and will learn about electrical safety. In Spring 1, we will learn about Ancient Egypt in History, looking in detail at how the Ancient Egyptians lived, rituals such as mummification and religion, and famous pharaohs including Tutankhamun and Cleopatra.

After half term, in Geography we will be learning about Rivers, including some famous rivers from around the world and the water cycle.



Homework is checked on a Wednesday. Every week your child should go on Times Tables Rockstars and complete at least one soundcheck and two garage sessions. They should also go on to Spelling Shed and complete the activities there. Children have all been given their usernames and passwords.

Reading is a vital element of your child's education. Please do listen to your child read each day and ask them comprehension questions about the book. All reading should be logged on Boomreader - new logins have been sent out. Books can be changed once they have been completed and marked as completed on Boomreader. We will be giving out rewards for children reading and logging it on Boomreader too! Information on the books we are reading in school can be found by clicking the 'Reading in Year 4' link at the top of this page. Children can also practice reading on Reading Plus - see this link: SITE CODE: rpsherd1


Multiplication Table Check

In June 2024, your children will sit their multiplication table check (MTC). This consists of a series of 25 mixed times table questions timed to 6 seconds per question. The results are recorded and sent to the government. 

Please practice times tables with your child frequently to ensure they are  becoming confident at quick recall. We complete weekly times table tests to keep track of your chid's progress on each times table during the year. Feel free to come and speak to us regarding their times tables. TT Rockstars or Hit the button links below are great for practising at home. LOG IN DETAILS HAVE BEEN SENT HOME

From time to time we will be setting work on for pupils to complete. We are also using Spelling Shed to help children practice their spellings - logins for this have been sent home. Here are the links:


PE is on a Tuesday and Friday. Please make sure your child has a NAMED PE kit. Also, please bring your child to school WEARING their PE kit on PE days. They also need a named water bottle in school. Earrings must be removed for PE days.  Ask us for more information on this if needed!
