Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 4 Page

Welcome to the Pallister Park Y4 page! Below you will find useful information for the upcoming term.

Our topic for this half term is Under the Sea.

In science we will be learning all about living things and their habitats. We will be creating food chains and going on an invertebrate hunt.

In English, we will be writing portal stories which will focus on a magical, sea world and will also be researching a range of sea creatures for our non-chronological reports.

We will be practising our embossing skills in art lessons and will be using clay to create our own starfish. We will also be learning Spanish throughout this half term and encourage pupils to practice at home.

Our next topic is Playlist. The children will be learning about ‘sound’ and will be carrying out a range of scientific investigations which will focus on vibrations, pitch and volume.

Children will be listening to a range of music from different eras and genres and will also be learning to play instruments!

In English we will be focusing on persuasive adverts and traditional stories.

We will also be continuing to learn Spanish in during this half term.



Year News

Our PE day is a Tuesday, please ensure that children have black shorts, a red t-shirt and appropriate shoes (trainers/plimsolls).


Homework will be focusing on:

Children will be given spellings every Friday to practise for a spelling test the following Friday. These will be sent home in either their yellow spelling books or their planners.

Reading at home to an adult is so important for children to develop their fluency and
reading skills. Please continue listen to your child read at home and sign their planner. Reading books and planners must be brought into school every day.

The government now expects  all children to know their times tables by the time they finish Year 4. Children will take part in a times tables test towards the end of the school year. All children now have a secure log in of their own so that they can access ‘Times Table Rockstars’. We encourage children to log in at home on a daily basis and and play games linked to their targets.

Year Events

Times tables club for ‘Times Table Rockstars’ will take place after school on Tuesdays. 3.00pm - 4.00pm.

Year 4 are also training very hard with Mr Round for an athletics competition. They will compete against other schools from around Middlesbrough in lots of different events.
