Summer Term 1 2024 

Welcome back to the final term of year 4! We are so excited for the summer term, with so many lovely things going on and so many opportunities for outdoor learning in the (hopefully) sunshine!

This half term we will be reading King of the Cloud Forests, which links to our Geography topic of survivors and mountains. Our English text is 'Counting on Katherine'. which we will use to write a range of text types including speeches, character descriptions, letters, and interviews. With the times table check coming up in just a few months, we will be placing an even bigger focus on times tables, through games, competitions and most importantly through the TTRS app.

Our RSHE topic this half term is growing up and body changes - if you have any questions, concerns of queries regarding this topic or would like to see any lesson plans in advance then this can be arranged.

Homework is set on a Friday and is due in (and marked) the following Friday.

Homework consists of 2 pages in their maths books, and 2 pages in their SPAG books, as well as a 10 minute task on Timestable Rockstars.

Homework club takes place on a Thursday lunch time for any children who wish to complete their homework there, or to receive help with their homework.


At the end of year 4 (in June), all children will complete the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC), so it is really important for the children to get regular practice of their timetables. Each child in our class has been given a day in which they can come into the classroom in the morning and go on to TTRS for 10 minutes as their morning activity. As well as this, TTRS 10 minutes sessions are set as homework each week. This allows for 20 minutes of regular TT practice, however any extra practice that can be done is a bonus!



The Multiplication Tables Check takes place for one week in June. For more information about the check please visit Multiplication tables check - GOV.UK ( 

Swimming will continue every Thursday from the first week back. The dates are:

  • 18th April 2024
  • 25th April 2024
  • 2nd May 2024
  • 9th May 2024
  • 16th May 2024
