Our Autumn Term topic is....
We will be learning all about the Anglo Saxons following on from your learning about the Romans last year. In English we will be writing some amazing adventure stories based in Anglo Saxon times as well as writing a chronological report! From the gods and goddesses to the brutal battles - it will be covered this term!
By the end of Year 4 we aim for children to be secure with all their times tables. You could use these websites below to practise these:
We have a competition running for all children in years 2-6, which aims to improve the children's times tables knowledge using the Times Tables Rockstars website. Each week, the child with the highest correct answers in their class will be awarded with a certificate, which will be displayed on our Rockstars board. At the end of the week, they will be able to bring their certificate home.

Key Dates for Year 4
In the second half of Autumn term, we usually take a trip to West Stow, due to current government guidelines, we are unable to organise this trip at the current time to ensure everyone is kept safe.
The Carol Concert and Year group assemblies are also pending new government guidance.
We understand that at times it can be tricky to print any final test scores from the Times Tables Check from https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check. However it is important that any reading or times tables that your child completes is recorded in their home reading logs.
Year 4 Arithmetic
We are aware that some of the children have been finding the current arithmetic questions a little tricky so far. These questions are aimed at quizzing children on concepts taught across the whole of Year 4 and therefore, there may be some questions, which we have not covered in class so far. If children are finding certain concepts tricky, then they can choose to leave these questions until taught, parents can use the calculation policy to help demonstrate the best method to solve this particular question or they can find some time with their teacher to help in certain areas.
We have also added in some Year 3 arithmetic tests, which children could have a go at if they are finding the Year 4 ones too tricky at this moment in time.
Home Learning Resources
Below are links to all the home learning documents, mentioned on the home learning grid. Please note, that there are also paper copies of each activity available in both Year 4 classrooms in the home learning boxes.
