Year 4 Curriculum Letter - 6/9/21





Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls


Year 4 - Autumn Curriculum Newsletter

Welcome back to school! Hopefully, you find this letter informative; please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.


Our expectation at Broadford is that every child should do the following every night:

-15 minutes reading to themselves or an adult (signed in the reading record)

-15 minutes practising spellings in their spelling book

-15 minutes rehearsing times tables facts (including multiplication and division)

Mathletics and TT Rockstars:

All children have received their mathletics and TT Rockstars information. These are online platforms that the children can use to further consolidate learning. This is monitored by the class teacher and children will be rewarded for the use of these websites at home. This is a great, visual way for your child to complete their times tables 15 minute homework! 


Spellings will be given out on a Monday. The children should practise the words they are given every evening. Spelling books must be brought in on Fridays, which is also when the weekly test happens. This will be closely monitored.

P.E Lessons

Larch, Ash and Birch will have PE on a Monday afternoon. Please ensure that your child is in possession of a full, named PE kit for their lesson. On Mondays, we will allow the children to come into school wearing their PE kit.This will be for the Autumn term and will be reviewed at Christmas.

Reading Books and 105 book to read

The children have all been given reading books and have been told their reading day. The children should be reading at home for 15 minutes every day, this will be monito by their teachers. The children are strongly encouraged to read books from the 105 books to read at Broadford list. The children all have trackers for these books which the teacher will check off for them. 

 Curriculum Information

We have included a summary of the topics which the children will be covering this term. If you would like to make any suggestions about what you would like your child to learn or you would like any guidance about how you can help your child at home, please speak to your child’s class teacher, as we welcome any suggestions you may have.

Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to the year ahead and are sure it will be full of fabulous learning experiences!
