​​Welcome to Year 4​

Mr Paul and Miss Jones



​Topic and Science

As part of our Literacy work we have started to read the Chronicles of Narnia - the lion, the witch and the wardrobe. We have been looking at the key features of descriptive writing  with a view to writing our own character descriptions and descriptions of settings. The children will soon be learning about fronted adverbials and how to use them to make their writing more interesting. 



Weekly spelling lists will be uploaded here.​

The children will still be given a paper copy each Friday but these are here for your reference -thanks.

Autumn Term - Second half.

We are currently looking at written methods for multiplication and division. We are then beginning to look at fractions before the Christmas break.

In Year 4, the children are required to sit a times tables check in the summer term.  The purpose of this check:

'is to determine whether pupils can fluently recall their times tables up to 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will also help your child’s school to identify pupils who may need additional support.'  

Below is a link to information provided by the testing standards agency about the check.

Parent information about the time table check.

​At Weston Point, we encourage the children to access  TTrockstars​ as frequently as possible. It provides an interactive platform where the children can improve their accuracy and speed when reaclling their times tables





Our topic this half term is the Romans.
