Welcome to Dolphin Class!

What to expect in Year 4:

Children in year 4 are continuing their journey in Key Stage 2 and will be supported to build on their previous learning and academic skills as well as their personal development. It is an exciting year, full of opportunities to explore and grow.


Each half term will have a different learning focus enabling pupils to explore and apply skills relevant to each subject.


Our weekly timetable is organised so that pupils get to explore a wide range  of subjects and lessons.


PE lessons will be  on  Mondays and Wednesdays. It  is essential that pupils bring their kit for these  days.


Our library sessio will be  every Friday. Please  ensure  library books are  in school  on  Friday to allow pupils to change  them.




It  is expected that pupils in year 4 will complete regular homework  activitiesEach half term, we  provide a selection of home learning ideas related to our new topic (shared on Dojo and uploaded here on our class page). Please  us pick one or two activities to explore our topic with your child at home.


We  send home spelling sheets so that pupils have a copy of their spellings to practise. If they return them when completed, they are rewarded with a Dojo Point.


We  set  regular MyMaths homework which gives pupils the opportunity to practis the maths skills we  have  covered in class. Pupils also hav logins for the times table app: PiXL maths. Being confident and fluent in our times table recall is hugely beneficial for pupils’ maths skills in year 4 and ongoing.


Please  continue to take time to share books at home and listen to your child read. You can also access the ebook library (MyON). It is helpful if home reading is noted in reading records.



As pupils continue to develop and improve their reading skills, many will be using the Accelerated Reader programme. This allows pupils to select and read books at an appropriate level of challenge.

All pupils are provided with a reading record . It is vital that pupils are able to read and discuss their reading at home as well as in school . We ask that parents sign reading records to communicate this to us.



Our topics this year will be:


Autumn 1: What lives in the ocean?

Autumn 2: Ancient Greece: Fact or fiction?

Spring 1: Can you travel around the world in 80 days?

Spring 2: What’s the matter?

Summer 1: What would you build if you were an Ancient Egyptian architect?

Summer 2: What’s that sound?
