Parent/Carer Curriculum Information
Throughout the year we will attach overviews with more information about what your child will be learning in each curriculum area during each term. We cover a variety of exciting topics throughout the year and may ask your child to bring in items from home to support these.
This half term homework will be reading, times tables, spellings and either a writing or maths task.
We enrich our curriculum by arranging the following:
Topic based visits.
Visits to our parish church Holy Apostles and Martyrs.
Visits to our local theatre the Floral Pavilion.
Sports competitions at local schools.
We are currently studying the wonderful book 'Edward Tulane' in our English lessons.
Our 'Class Reader' for Summer term is ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’.
RE - Jesus the Saviour
Jesus “is truly God and, as a man, truly human. His life, death and resurrection are the central event of all human history and at the heart of faith. His cross is the sign of his unique offering of himself for each and every human being.” Religious Education Curriculum Directory
Year 4 will learn that Jesus is truly God and, as man truly human and learn that Jesus came to share our life so that we can share his life. They will learn that when Jesus died on the cross he took away our sins, learn what happened in Holy week an learn what happened on Easter Sunday.
You could help your children by:
• reading the stories of Jesus’ last week with them
• visiting church during Holy Week
Physical Education (PE)
Our P.E day is Wednesday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Wednesday wearing their PE Kit. The PE kit includes black or navy shorts, a white T-shirt and a pair of trainers. As PE lessons will largely be held outside, your child may need something warmer (eg black or navy jogging bottoms and their school sweatshirt or cardigan).For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.
The children are expected to read independently at home on a regular basis (15 minutes per night). They should keep a record in their diary of what they have read. Please listen to them read out loud and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.
Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 3/4 by the end of Year 4. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home. Click the file below to see the year 3/4 spelling list and practice some of the words at home.
Y4 - By the end of Y4 children are expected to know all of their tables up to 12 x 12 and associated division facts. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.
