Summer Curriculum Letter 2019

Summer Term

Well it’s finally here, our last term in Year 4! Seems like only yesterday when your children came up from Year 3. They’ve developed so much, academically, socially and emotionally.

But first, we still have our Summer Term to get through with lots of exciting trips, activities and learning!


Literacy Tree has ensured the children access a rich, diverse and interesting text, encouraging them  to develop their writing skills through a thematic approach. This term our texts are Winter’s Child by Graham Baker Smith and The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde & Michael Foreman.


Our Maths will begin this term with a focus on number, especially arithmetic and mental maths. We will also look at shape and space, measuring and data handling.


Settlements – The Anglo Saxons
This term we will be learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and their invasion and settlement of Britain.


Children will learn to understand and respect digital rights and responsibilities and investigate the difference between virtual friendship vs real friendship; who we can trust


Our science this term is State of Matter. Children will be learning how to group materials together according to whether they are solid, liquid or gas. They will also observe how some materials change their state and identify how evaporation and condensation plays their part in the water cycle.


We will revisit our Hinduism unit and progress to learning about what it means to be a Hindu


The children will be swimming Wednesday mornings and on Thursday afternoon the children will begin gymnastics.


Homework will be set each Friday and expected back on the following Wednesday. Remember to read every day and bring your reading log to school every day.
All children should know their multiplication tables up to and including 12 by the end of year 4.
