The English curriculum will continue with the development of spoken language, reading and writing skills. Children will develop their reading comprehension skills as well as learn spellings, punctuation and grammar. They will learn new skills and contexts for writing based on core texts. This term we will be looking at ‘’The Boy at the Back of the Class’ by Onjali Q Rauf.
Reading (minimum of 10 minutes a day) – Shared reading and reading aloud helps children develop their higher-order comprehension skills. Please remind your child to fill in their reading record and complete their reading journal every week.
Spellings (10 minutes per day) – Please encourage your child to learn the spelling rules and the meanings of words as well as the spellings. Encourage children to use READ, COVER, WRITE, CHECK method.
The National Curriculum for Maths is being taught using the ‘Singapore Maths’ approach.
This term our focus will be mainly on geometry. We will be focusing on topics such as area, perimeter, types of shapes and angles. We may also be doing some work on position and movement on a grid later on the term.
In Geography we will be learning about the UK and focusing on settlements and how settlements change over time. This may also include a field trip to a location in London for pupils to investigate first hand how the city has changed. More details to follow.
School uniform & PE kit
Please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled with your child’s name. PE lessons will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Children must come to school with their PE kit on the days that they have PE.
Our Science topic this term will be Living things. We will focus on the types of species that live on our planet with us and explore their habitats and way of life.
The Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)
This academic year, 2021-2021, we expect and are preparing to have their multiplication skills formally tested in the new statutory test.
We encourage children to memorise multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12. This will only aid them in the future.
By regularly practising, children will develop their knowledge of multiplication tables in order to recall facts with precision and fluency.
Islamic Studies and Arabic
Children will continue to revise surahs from the Holy Qur’an as well as duas. They will continue learning Arabic from our specialist Arabic/Islamic Studies teacher. Their topic this term is the importance and significance of Ikhlaas and the Basmallah.

Homework is important because it helps to consolidate classroom teaching. Please establish a homework routine and encourage your child to complete their homework that will be set on the Year 4 Google classroom.
In computing this term we will focus on animation and programming that includes; Java and HTML.
