“Foundations for Life”

Year 4


Welcome Holly and Maple class! Welcome to Term 1 in Year 4. This term we are going to explore the topic: Bottoms, burps and bile. We will then have the fun of starting swimming as a year group and getting to grips with our times tables. 

MAPLE - Mrs Strezoiu

HOLLY - Mrs Burton/Mrs Jennings

Year 4 TA - Miss Robinson


Both Holly and Maple Classes will have Forest school this term - every Wednesday morning. Please ensure suitable clothes are packed for Forest School and brought in a named bag. 

Forest school kit should consist of a long sleeve top and jumper, long trousers, boots, impermeable coat. 

Term 3 - Your child will need their regular PE kit every Wednesday morning. Children should have a named PE bag, which should contain their PE kit all individually labelled; a t-shirt, black shorts/skort/leggings or tracksuit bottoms in colder weather. A sweatshirt/hoodie would also be of benefit in the colder weather. Children can wear plimsoles or trainers.

Please ensure the PE kit is in school throughout the week in the event of a sudden timetable change.




Home learning continues in the form of Tea Time Talk.


This task is based around three questions which relate directly to the learning your child will have just completed in school. The questions encourage you as a family to discuss your child’s learning and this will provide an important opportunity for your child to rehearse, and therefore retain, the knowledge and skills that they would have recently acquired at school.


All you need to do is talk about the questions with your child.

For those who wish to, there is the optional task of recording your Tea Time Talks in some form. For example, you could:

  • Write a series of bullet points that summarise the discussion you have had;
  • Record in speech bubbles the conversation you have had and create a Tea Time Talk poster;
  • Younger children may prefer to draw a series of pictures that demonstrate the aspects of learning covered;
  • Where possible, photos might be used to capture the Tea Time Talk learning in action (e.g. if the learning is linked to PSHE and ways of keeping healthy, a photo of your child riding their bike might be appropriate);
  • You could film a short video for each of the Tea Time Talks.
  • Demonstrate learning outdoors, like we often do at school.


The weekly tea time talk tasks can be found at the bottom of the page under Key Information next to the Weekly Spellings button.

Year 4


As usual, the children are expected to read every day with a minimum of three times a week recorded in Boom Reader. These will go towards your child's home reads and will support with their access of all areas of the curriculum.


If children are unable to meet this for two consecutive weeks, we will contact you and happy to meet to discuss how we can help.


The children are also expected to practise Times Table Rock Stars three times a week as this will support them with their upcoming multiplication assessment.
