King Edward Primary School Excitement + Determination = Success

Year 4


Welcome to our Year 4 Page

Our teachers are Mrs. Wilbourne and Miss Langridge.

We work very hard in our classes.

We always aim to try our best, and enjoy our learning.




This half term our topic is 






In this topic, we will be learning about lots of things.




We will be undertaking factual and explanation writing connected to sea turtles. We will also be writing an adventure story. We will be learning about a range of grammar conventions linked to Rainbow Grammar, and we will be applying these in our writing. 




We will be studying a variety of numerical topics including fractions, shape, and problem solving using written methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also continue with our daily practice of counting, multiplication tables, and mental methods of calculation. Also, we will have the chance to work on our Superhero multiplication challenges each week.



We will be learning about the sea turtles of Florida. We will be finding out about the different types of sea turtle and their habitat. We will be looking at issues that are creating problems for the sea turtles, and endangering their population.



In science, we will studying the topic of 'Habitats'. Through this work, we will be investigating the habitat of the sea turtle, and also the habitats of animals in our school environment. We will look at different habitats, and consider how they support the organisms which live there.



We will study how we can create texture through art. This will involve undertaking rubbings of differing textures, and using collage to present the rubbings we do in the form of a sea creature. In addition to this, we will study the turtle paintings of Jo Lynch, and create our own work in a similar style.



In R.E., we will be studying the religion of Christianity. 

We will be finding out about Easter. This will include looking at the key events of Holy Week such as Jesus' arrival in Jerusalem, the Last Supper, Jesus' arrest, his crucifixion and his resurrection. We will also be considering how Easter is celebrated around the world.



We will be continuing our French sessions, using the Rigolo teaching program to support our learning.



Good to be me!

In this unit of work, we will be thinking about how we are all different, but we all have something good to offer to society. We will be talking about feelings and how they might affect our behaviour, in both positive and negative ways. We will be understanding how important it is that we consider the feelings of others.



Swimming will be on a Monday afternoon.

Outdoor games 

P.E. day for 4SW and 4AL will be Wednesday.





More Information for Parents



Children will be given weekly lists of spellings to learn which will support the spelling patterns they are learning in class.

Spellings will go out on a Monday, and will be tested on the following Monday.


Creative homework will be given out at the start of each half term, and will need returning by the date given on the activity sheet.



We encourage children to read at home regularly to support their progress at school. Reading records and books should be in school every day please. 


It would also be very beneficial to your child's learning, if they could regularly practise their times tables and quick mental maths activities.
