Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!


4RT - Marsha P Johnson Class

Why Marsha P Johnson?

We chose Marsha as our role model because she represents being yourself and celebrating differences between us. She was an outspoken advocate for gay rights and was one of the prominent figures in the Stonewall Uprising of 1969.

4SL - Katherine Johnson Class

Why Katherine Johnson?

We chose Katherine as our role model because she overcame many barriers in her life to become one of the four women, known as the human calculators, to calculate the figures for the first successful flight into space and helped NASA to become what it is today.

Term 6 Newsletter


Welcome back. We hope you had a lovely Half Term break and were able to enjoy some sunshine.


We are Scientists:

This term we will be exploring the Human Digestive System and the different roles of teeth for both humans and animals.  We will be writing our own narratives imagining we are a piece of food travelling along the digestive system. As we will be exploring food we eat, we will have a go at writing, our own persuasive adverts to encourage people to eat more healthily.


We are Authors:

This term we are going to continue focussing on using inverted commas correctly, how to engage our reader through different literary features such as similes, metaphors and personification and improving our editing skills.


We are Mathematicians:

This term we will be exploring time, shape and co-ordinates.  At the beginning of the term, every child will be having a go at the Online Multiplication Check.  This will be very low key for the children, as we will be sending them out in small groups to complete – it takes around 5 minutes.  The children are used to the format and the speed given for each question.


PSHE (Jigsaw):

This term we will be learning about changes that happen to us as we grow up, genetics and reproductive organs. If you would like to see our scheme of work, we are happy to share this with you or if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.



Please make sure you have your PE kits in school all week - our PE lesson is on a Monday and Friday afternoon. As most PE lessons are outside it would be a good idea to have some shorts as the weather becomes warmer.  Please ensure that if your child’s hair is longer than shoulder length, they have a hair band with which they can use to tie their hair back. 


Key Dates:

Monday 6th June 2022 – INSET DAY

Tuesday 7th June 2022 – Term 6 starts for children

Transition Day - 13th July


Thursday 21st July 2022 – End of Term

Friday 22nd July 2022 – INSET DAY


Reminders – Please make sure you have put names in all your children’s school uniform, PE kit and packed lunch box, if appropriate.


More information with additional key dates for the diary will follow. In the meantime, we operate an open doors policy, so please feel free to approach us with any questions!

We are looking forward to an exciting Term 6.


Kindest Regards

The Year 4 Team J
