Term 2 Learning


After a great first term we are looking forward to lots of exciting learning in Term 2.  We will be continuing our Topic of 'Flying Engineers' and are already excited about our trip to Aerospace Bristol on Tuesday 27th November.

PE and Outdoor Learning Autumn Term 2


Our PE days this term will be:

Tuesday (PM) and Wednesday (AM)


Please ensure that your child comes in PE kit on these days.


On Wednesday mornings the children will be doing Outdoor Education and PE with Mr Welti and Mr Gill.  Please make sure that they have wellies and a waterproof coat in addition to their PE kit on this day.


Have a look at our Autumn Term Learning Overview here:

Flying Engineers Y4 Autumn 2018


Your children are now getting used to Mathletics and it seems they are all enjoying it.  

Homework assignments will be set from every Wednesday from 4pm and

 we will expect these to be completed by the following Tuesday of each week.  



Times Tables In Year 4


By the end of year 4, it is now a stipulation that year 4 children should know all their times tables up to x12. Try to help your child learn and practice their tables as often as possible – a little and often works well. Please ensure that as you practice the x tables, you also practice the corresponding division facts as it is really important that children understand the relationship between multiplication and division.

Please find below a parent guide for helping with tables.


We would love it if you could try to read with your child regularly – minimum of 3 signed reads per week – to be entered in the new reading logs your child has brought home.   As the year goes on, this will increase to 5, signed reads per week in line with the school reading policy.


At Birdwell, we are now following the ‘VIPERS’ for reading comprehension scheme and this term’s focus is VOCABULARY. You will find a copy of all the question STEMS (including the STEMS for VOCABULARY) below.

As you read with your child find opportunities to question them about the vocabulary they are reading – use the questions stems to help you with this.
