Year 4J 2018 - 2019

Mr Jolly

Spring 1

Hello, Happy new year and welcome back, to all our Year 4 families. We hope you have enjoyed the two week break with your children.

This term is a very busy one. We have started the exciting opportunity of learning how to play the guitar! We are to have an hours lesson every Tuesday until Easter. We are hoping that there are some budding Rock stars amongst us. Watch out for news of our concert in the second half of the Spring term.


We will also begin our swimming lessons very soon. The children will receive letters of consent for this essential lifesaving skill in the coming weeks. More details to follow.


In English, we will continue to read a variety of text types, developing new vocabulary and writing skills. In Maths, we will be tackling fractions and decimals as well as continuing to develop number skills and problem solving.

Central to our learning is Religious Education where our lessons encourage us to reflect on our own faiths and practises. We reflect on all our learning and the impact of the Christian values on our daily lives.

May  we take this opportunity to thank you for all your support in 2018 and look forward to this continuing in the new year.

Autumn 2

What a busy half term that was! We hope you had a lovely time at half term and that the children had time to rest and play with their families and carers.

Already very busy start to the second half term.  In November, we will be meeting our Linking Project class from St. Joseph’s school in Heywood. We are very excited about meeting them at the M6 theatre, where we will play getting to know you games AND watch a production! 

In R.E., we started by continuing our prayer topic where we looked at why people pray. We followed this up by thinking of questions we could ask to find out about people’s prayer habits. When we have concluded this fascinating topic, we will move on to “Christmas: Exploring the symbolism of light”.





In English, we are starting this term looking at the Fantasy genre of fiction. The children prepared for this with their homework over half term. The quality of this was great we thank you for your support. Poor Hiccup is an unlikely hero; we are looking forward to finding our if he can,” Train his Dragon.”

This half term we are staring maths with addition and subtraction, estimating and rounding.  Further to this, we will start to develop our skills in multiplication and look at challenging problems within all of our topics in maths. Later on this half term, we will explore the four operations in depth.

This half term we will be looking about how the earth “Shake, rattle and roll” in geography. This involves earthquakes and volcanos. Electricity is the topic for science and we have some exciting experiments planned. The children are getting stuck into practical work as well as understanding the importance of being safe and thinking about wasting and saving resources.
