Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 4 Page

Welcome to the Pallister Park Y4 page!

Our topic for this half term is Burps, Bottoms and Bile!

In Science, we will be learning about the digestive system and the importance of teeth. We will be carrying out an investigation with boiled eggs to see how different liquids affect the shells. Pupils will be able to compare the eggshells to their teeth’s enamel to understand the effects of sugar and acid.

In English, we will be writing adventure stories and an explanation text based on ‘My Life as a Burger’. Pupils will be explaining how food travels through the digestive system.

We will be practicing our skills in art and will be focusing on Picasso. We will also be learning Spanish throughout this half term and encourage pupils to practice at home.

Our next topic is Potions. The children will be learning about states of matter including solids, liquids and gases. We will be carrying out a range of scientific investigations, which will focus on how materials change when they are heated/cooled.

We will also be learning about the water cycle, focusing on evaporation and condensation.

In English, we will be focusing on fairy-tales and instructions.

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.

Children can also now access Reading Plus at home. Each child should have a copy of their username and password in their planner.

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 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.
