Dear Parents/ Carers,


Welcome to Autumn Term 1 in Year 4. I hope you had a lovely summer. My name is Miss Mitchell and along with Mr Harkin, we will be the class teachers who will be working with your children this year. If you have any concerns or need to inform us of anything, please do not hesitate to speak to either of us.


I will be sending the children home with Dojo codes so you can sign up to monitor how your child behaves in the classroom, send messages to myself to pass on information or raise any concerns. It is just a case of downloading a free app to your smart phone, tablet or visiting the website and entering your code. If any help is needed, do not hesitate to ask me.


Your child is expected to read every evening. Please write in your child’s reading record so we are aware when your child has finished a book and can change it. They will receive Maths and English homework on Thursdays which will need to be the following Tuesday.

On Fridays, Year 4 will be taught by Mrs Jones and will focus on Science and basic skills to help secure the foundations of their English and Maths knowledge.


We will be starting year 4 with our theme entitled ‘Raging Romans.’ We will be focusing on why the Romans invaded Britain, reasons for the invasion and researching Roman emperors like Claudius. This will involve us learning about Boudicca’s rebellion, Hadrian’s Wall as well as a class trip to Chester.

In our English lessons we will be studying David Walliams book ‘Ratburger’. We will be using this story to create fantastic pieces of work including play scripts, persuasive writing and exciting stories. We will continue to worki hard to improve our handwriting, spelling and grammar. We will be applying these skills across all subjects


In our Science this half term we will be covering the topic ‘States of Matter.’ We will be looking at the particle make up of solids, liquids and gases. The focus material of our investigations will be water, looking at the water cycle and the changes that occur to water as it moves through the three states of matter.

RE this term will be focusing on prayer and the importance of prayer in different religions.

In our computing lessons this term the children will be learning to create simple programs and using the Internet to research and display work.

If you do have any further questions about the curriculum your child will be studying this term don’t hesitate to ask.

There will be a further letter detailing when your child will bring reading books and homework home.


Thank you for your support,

Miss Mitchell and Mr Harkin
