Year 4 book recommendations 2020

Kingswood - February 2020


Kingswood 2020 proved to be a fantastic trip: experiencing weather from the four seasons, overcoming personal challenges and learning valuable new skills. A huge well done to all of the children who were not afraid to find their limits and push through them!

Street dance performance


We are pulling together the final elements of our street dance ready to showcase to parents and carers. The children have worked really hard to perfect this performance and have had a true insight into what it is like choreograph to  such a hard routine. A massive thanks to Paul from Dance City for putting this together.

Woof! - Proof

Follow along with the original TV series as we continue to read our class novel Woof! (Alan Ahlberg)

Sensational sewing


During our DT days we focused on our sewing skills. Specifically the whip and running stitch. First we designed and planned how we wanted our pencil cases to look. Then we had a little bit of practice with scrap bits of felt before attempting the real thing. More images can be found in the class galleries section of the website. 

Awesome start to the year

Everybody in Year 4 has made an excellent start to the new school year. High expectations have been set and the thirst for challenge is clear. School councillors have had their first meetings, classroom roles have been distributed and school life in Year 4 has quickly settled down.  This half term is already looking like a busy one with professional tag rugby coaching, tarantulas visiting school and a celebration event of the school being open 50 years! Topics for this half term can be found on the link below. 



We expect all our children to read every evening and at least once over the weekend. In Year 4, 15 minutes should be a minimum but, if your child can't put their book down because they are so engrossed, that's the magic of reading.  Please ensure you sign the reading logs to confirm this reading is taking place. We visit the school library once a week and regularly update the children's Oxford Reading Tree books every week on Mondays.


Spellings are handed out on a Friday ready to be tested the following Friday. Downloads of the spellings can be found at the bottom of this page.


Where necessary, additional homework such as handwriting or times tables practise will also be handed out on a Friday

Times tables


All children now have log-in details to access 'Times Table Rockstars' on a computer, tablet or phone. This is a fantastic website that operates in a similar way to sumdog, but just focuses on times tables. This will help supplement our in-school tests and will boost confidence for children at every level.
