Core skills and success – you do the maths


In maths, we will be focusing on fractions, decimals and measurement. Children will learn to;


Show equivalent fractions, count up and down in hundredths; divide by one hundred and ten, Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator, recognise and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundredths, recognise and write decimal equivalents to 1/4 , 1/2 , ¾, and round and compare decimal numbers up to one decimal place.


This year, Year 4s will take part in the compulsory Times Tables Check. Children will answer 25 questions, with only 6 seconds to answer each question.

How can you help at home?

Please ensure that you regularly practise and test your child on their times tables.  At the end of Year 4, children should know the all times tables up to 12x12.  It is always useful to practise the times tables as this really helps children with a range of mathematics work in school.  If you have access to the internet, please visit the following sites to support your child's learning at home.



In English, we will be creating our own twisted tales based on classic stories such as; ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’.


How you can help your child? Encourage your child to read their reading book and ask them questions about the text which they are reading.

It is important to read a variety of texts with your child.  This can be anything from their reading books to newspapers and leaflets.  This will help to extend your child’s vocabulary and their understanding of different text types, which will in turn help to improve their writing.

Exploring Easter as a story of betrayal 

In RE we will;

  • Give children the opportunity to reflect upon the importance of power and the effect of betrayal, trust and forgiveness.
  • Deepen pupil’s understanding of the concept of salvation.
  • Focus on the significance of the incidents of betrayal and trust in the Easter story.


As scientists, we will be studying Living Things and Their Habitats. We will;

  • Recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways,
  • explore and use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment
  • recognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.







As geographers, children will head back in time to find out how towns and cities within the UK first developed. Children will learn about the requirements that early settlers had when choosing an area to build a home. As well as this, children will use maps to investigate land use in different sized settlements.
