Welcome to St. Philip’s Primary


Year 4D

Hello all and welcome to Year 4D! I am Miss Davenport, the class teacher, and along with me I have Mrs Smith and Mrs Cooney to complete the Year 4D team. It’s the start of a new academic year and there is lots of learning ahead. Are you all ready?



    Why are the Pyramids a wonder of the world?

    What will I learn today?

    There is so much to learn this half term Year 4D! Our overall theme takes us back all the way to Ancient Egyptian times where we will be working as Historians to investigate why this culture has had such an influence on us today. We will continue this theme as Artists as we research and investigate Egyptian art and make some of our own! In outdoor P.E it’s all about football and in computing we will learn all about staying safe online. Science sees us investigating the human digestive system; there will be lots of fun experiments along the way to find out what happens to our food when it goes into our bodies!


     Autumn term 1 key questions...


    English: Can I write a story including lots of character description?


    Maths: What are the values of each digit in a four digit number?


    Art and Design...What does Ancient Egyptian Art look like?


    RE... What are the Psalms and what do they tell me about God?  

    Things to remember in Year 4



    In Year 4 we will do P.E. on Mondays and Thursdays. We do ask that you leave indoor P.E. kits in school and we will ensure that they are sent home each half-term to be washed. This half term we will be doing gymnastics (Mondays) and football (Thursdays). Please remember that this year we have an outdoor P.E. kit. (black tracksuit pants or leggings, white polo top or t-shirt, plain black hooded top and trainers), which you will require on Thursdays.  This can be taken home each week for washing. 



    In Year 4 your homework will involve:

    • Daily reading
    • Weekly Spellings
    • Multiplication facts (including division facts)
    • English HWK
    • Numeracy HWK
    • Project HWK


    Reading Books

    Our reading books will be changed on Wednesday. You should bring your planners and reading books to school everyday. Please also read at least 5 pages every night and sign your planner to show that you have done this.  This year we are also lucky to have access to the 'Bug Club'. You can use your individual login to access reading books online.


    Year 4 weekly spelling tests are administrated on a Tuesday.
