Meerkats - Year 4

Golden Award - 15th September


Well done Qasim for winning the first Meerkat's golden award.

Maths - 9th September


In Maths, we have been looking at rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. We used our new rekenreks to help with visualising what the number was closest to.

Meerkats 2021


Hello Meerkats!


I am so excited for the start of this year and to meet you all! We have so many exciting things planned already and I can't wait for us all to get started!


Please remember that Year 4 learning starts at 8:45 am and finishes at 3:25 pm.



In English, we will be looking at The Wolves in the Walls by Neil Gaiman which is a brilliant book that I am sure you will love as much as I do. Throughout the year, we will also be looking at a collection of poems by Michael Rosen, starting off with Don't Put Mustard in the Custard.


In Maths, we will be starting the year thinking about place value, and I'll add more detail about that as we go through the unit so you can support your Meerkats learning at home.


In History, we will be looking at Ancient Greece and their way of life. A topic which I cannot wait to delve in deeper with you all.


In Science, we will be starting off with the Animals including Humans topic; looking at the digestive system and our teeth (we already have some great experiments lined up for you!)


In RE, we are thinking about what kind of world Jesus would want.


Our PE day will be Thursdays. Please have your child come into school wearing their PE kit on this day. PE will start on Thursday 9th September. 


Meerkats will be swimming for the first half term, this will be every Tuesday. Please make sure your child has their swimming costume, hat and towel. All earrings must be taken out.


Reading Records need to be handed in on a Friday, and will be returned on a Monday. Reading scheme books will only be changed on a Monday.


Mrs Britton is our Meerkats TA and will be with us everyday.


If you have any questions, queries or worries, please don't hesitate to speak to me. I am available on the playground from 8:40 am every morning.


Thanks, and see you all on Monday 6th September!
