Year 4 Topics

Year four will start this academic year studying the ‘History of Sandhurst since 1812’ in which we will use historic walks, art and design, buildings and monuments to bring history to life. We will also go on our whole school ‘WOW Trip’. This will be followed by our 'Home and Away - European Country Study,’ focusing on Slovenia. We will finish the year with our study of ‘The Romans’ and the impact that they have made on modern Britain which will include a visit to Fishbourne Roman Palace and Museum.


English: This term we will be exploring diary writing, stories set in familiar settings, instructional writing, autobiographies and biographies and narrative poems. The children will also learn about verbs, nouns, determiners, question marks, exclamation marks, paragraphs, tenses and headings and subheadings. Some of the texts we will be studying are; ‘There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’, ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’, and ‘The Butterfly Lion’.


Maths: We will be looking at place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.


For a more detailed overview, please see the curriculum overview at the bottom of this class page.



Alternating Maths and English homework will be sent home every week on a Monday and then marked the following Monday. Please remind your child to bring in their Homework book every Monday so new English or Maths sheets can be stuck in!


In addition to this set homework, each week your child should read aloud most days and their reading record books signed. They should also work on learning all their times tables up to 12x12. 


Class Routines

PE will take place on a Monday PM and Wednesday PM. Children should come into school in their PE kit on these days. No earrings or watches are allowed. Children need to have a blue PE shirt, blue shorts and/or jogging bottoms, a warm jacket, trainers and socks.


Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)

Children will be sitting their Multiplication Tables Check at school in June 2023. Revision has already begun in school, and the children will have opportunities most days to sit the online test on a school iPad or PC or revise specific times tables. Support with times-tables at home will really help give your child the opportunity to do their very best in the test.
