Gardening and Cooking date update

Please note the date changes above for our next gardening and cooking sessions. The original dates posted were incorrect. 4H and 4F will be on Monday and Tuesday as usual. 4P and 4S have swapped days to avoid 4S having a clash with gardening/cooking and their sharing assembly.



MTC Parent Guidance

The DfE have released an updated leaflet with information about the MTC in June. Please have a look at the PDF document at the bottom of the page to find out more.


Please also look again at the TTRS MTC guidance at the bottom of the page which offers guidance on how to use TTRS to help children prepare for the MTC.

New whole class reading text:

We will be starting a new book in our whole class reading lessons after Easter:

The Boy at the Back of the Class, Onjali Rauf

Please ensure that your child has a copy ready for the first week back.

If your child is entitled to the pupil premium grant, a copy will be provided. 


Whole class reading texts


EnglishThis term we are going to be completing a newspaper report based on the book 'Escape from Pompeii', outlining the events that took place during the Pompeii eruption. In this narrative piece of writing, the grammar skills that we will focus on are paragraphs, speech and fronted adverbials.

Reading and talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week.

Please do ensure that you allocate time to to talk about what you have read with your child during each session. So if you set aside 20 minutes for reading, spend 10 minutes reading and 10 minutes asking your child questions about what they have just read.  Look at the 'KS2 Reading Prompts' document at the bottom of the page for help with questioning.


Complete your child’s reading record each time they read and sign at the end of the week. Remember it doesn’t always have to be their school book. Reading records and reading books should be sent into school daily.


Updated recommended reading list for Year 4 can be found here.


Children should log on and practise TT Rock Stars 4 times per week. All children are expected to be able to fluently recall their times tables by the end of Year 4 and will take the Multiplication Times Table Check in the Summer term. Regular practise at home will go a long way in ensuring your child can meet this National Curriculum goal.


Congratulations to 4P for winning this weeks TTRS tournament.


We have now finished explicitly teaching each times table and so will be focusing on key facts within each class that need strengthening. Please continue to practise on garage at home and test your progress on soundcheck.


Have a read of the TTRS Parents Guide  and the MTC preparation schedule at the bottom of the page.


This term we are learning about fractions. We will be looking at fractions as part of a whole and counting fractions beyond 1. We will be comparing mixed numbers and improper fractions and converting between the two and will then move on to adding and subtracting fractions.

Spelling patterns

Our spelling words are updated every 2 weeks. Six of the words will be based on the spelling pattern of our spelling program. The other six words are key vocabulary words which we will be using across our current learning topics. Please practise the spelling words at home ready for our dictation lesson where we test those spellings on the 2nd Wednesday of each unit.


Unit 12 - adding 'ir' to words that start with 'r' and 'il' to words that start with 'l'
