Inshallah you all had a fantastic Ramadan break. Please read below for information concerning Summer 1. If there are any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to come and speak to me.


ThIn English

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 spelling, punctuation and grammar. They will learn new skills and contexts for writing based on core texts. This term we will be reading The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q Rauf in our English lessons. We will also be reading The Girl Who Stole an Elephant by Nizrana Farook for guided reading.

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 measurements and geometry that will include properties of shape, area and perimeter. We will also be solving some word problems in these topics.


In Geography we will be learning about UK and its regions including physical and human features. We will be using atlases and explore how to use maps to find specific places on them.

School uniform & PE kit

Please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled with your child’s name. This term, Platform Cricket sessions will take place on Mondays. Children must come to school with their PE kit on the days that they have PE.


Our Science topic this term will be ‘Grouping Living Things’. We will be looking at different animal groups and explore how to create and use a classification key.

The Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)

This academic year, 2023-2024, we expect and are preparing to have the multiplication skills formally tested in the 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 using online tools, 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. 

Year 4 Homework Guidance

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 and IXL.


In computing this term we will focus on animation using the 2animate software on Purple Mash.

The children have made a good start to the new school year and have quickly settled into their new routines. If you wish to discuss anything then please don’t hesitate to contact us. JazakAllah Khair for your support. We look forward to seeing you in school.
