Year 4 - Kestrels and Rabbits

Summer Term 2018

Year 4 Newsletter

Welcome back Parents and Carers. We hope you had an enjoyable Easter break and are ready for a great school year.                                                           


The year 4 team ask that we work together as a partnership to help your child reach their full potential. If you have any questions or concerns, please come in and see us. Communication is key to a successful partnership.



Our class novel for summer one term will be Romeo and Juliet by Terry Deary and in summer two term our topic will be Secret Garden.  


Spellings will be given out on a weekly basis and will be taken home to learn. Both year 4 classes will be given their spellings on a Wednesday to be tested the following Tuesday. Please ensure that your child learns their spellings, ready for this test.



Please listen to and encourage your child to read at home. It is helpful to discuss the content of the books with your child, to develop their comprehension skills and understanding.



Maths homework will be set each Tuesday. This homework will need to be returned by the following Monday at the latest. The homework will be based around the work that the children have undertaken during that particular week in school. This enables us to consolidate their learning and address any misconceptions. This term our focus is decimals, money, time and geometry.



Science- our topics for both summer terms are Living things. We will be looking at all living things animals, habitats, plants, food chains and many more exciting things.



PE will be as follows:

Kestrels – Monday, Wednesday


Rabbits-  Tuesday, Wednesday,


We are looking forward to a great year working with you and your child.


Thank you for your support.
