Here is our Topic Web for Autumn Term:
We encourage 30 minutes of daily reading at home as well as the reading we do in school. If you would like to check the AR level of a book, you can use this website.
Some suggested texts for Year 4:
Bill’s New Frock – Anne Fine
Charlotte’s Web – EB White
Why the Whales Came – Michael Morpurgo
The Firework Maker’s Daughter – Phillip Pullman
The Snow Walker’s Son – Catherine Fisher
Perry Angel’s Suitcase – Glenda Millard
Voices in the Park – Anthony Browne
To help with quick recall of times tables to 12 x 12, we suggest regular use of TT Rockstars at home to build on what we are doing in school. Please ask your class teacher if you need reminding of your log in details.
You can use this at home to help support you learning in school. We will be setting some regular 'sneaky peeks' that you can do at home to help prepare you for school.
