Year 4 2023 - 2024


Welcome to the Year 4 Class Page 

Teacher: Mrs L Knowles   TA: Mrs S Taylor


Welcome to the spring term

Thank you for taking the time to look at what we are doing this term.


Our second term’s learning is based around the several books and poetry.

Our class reading book this term will be to complete ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ by Cressida Cowell 

You can read all about Cressida on this link

and to move on to 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. This will be our main focus this term. 

More information, for parents can be found at   


We will use the book to produce lots of English work including a set of instructions, an advert, a narrative and a letter. 

Other books to be used, to produce English work are 'Can You Catch a Mermaid' by Jane Ray and 'Selkie' by Gillian McClure.

Looking at poetry in this term, we will write poems about pets.



In Maths, this term, we will be looking at topics across the curriculum and for the start of the term we will be focussing on multiplication and division, length and perimeter followed by fractions. 


Geography and History will be covered alternately so we will look at History at the start of the term. Firstly, we will be looking at Ancient China (The Shang Dynasty.)


During Religious Education lessons, we will look at Jesus and Easter.


During Art & DT we will be sketching our own design of a dragon’s eye. Following this we will be making the eye from clay and decorating it using paint.


You will spread your wings and grow your brains, learning all you can as we move through the curriculum.

You will find out Year 4 Timetable and Long-Term Planning on the links at the bottom of the page, amongst other files you may find useful.

I can be contacted via the school website using the enquiries email. We are also using Class Dojo for daily messages and news so I can be contacted on there too. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Knowles & Mrs Taylor
