Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Home learning


In English, we are writing a comic strip entitled 'A day in the life of the intestines'. Your task is to create your own comic including what happens to the chyme (food) in your stomach, the small intestines, the large intestine and the rectum. Use the attached examples to help you.

Just for fun! If you have finished your comic, complete the Beano comprehension and writing tasks.

Burps, Bottoms and Bile

As we are coming to the end of our topic, it is time to showcase your learning! Be as creative as you can. You may choose to create a powerpoint, learning poster or even a rap! 


We have looked at teeth, did an investigation using eggs, learned about our digestive system, visited Thames Water treatment works and looked at the importance of having a balanced diet. Wow, we've been busy! 

Don't forget!

Remember to practise your times tables on TTRockstars, your spelling on spelling shed and reading on Reading eggs.

Thames water sewage treatment works

Year 4 went on a visit to the Thames Water sewage treatment works in Slough. Our trip linked to both our topic, as we have been learning about our digestive system and our text in English.

Please send children in with the following:

  • Unnecessary items e.g. fluffy keyrings, toys or balls
  • Overly large bags – we have small lockers and some bags will not fit into them


PE Kit

  • Children should wear their full PE kits for the full day on PE days.
  • Children can wear shorts, T shirts and trainers or plimsols.
  • As weather cools down, they can wear tracksuits, jogging bottoms, leggings and sports jumpers.
  • If children are partaking in outdoor PE, they can bring another pair of socks and shoes as their feet may become wet or muddy.
  • We remind parents that we enjoy outdoor learning in all weathers and children should be prepared for this.

Children have access to their Spelling Shed logins and will be set spelling tasks based around the words and sounds that the children are looking at in lessons.



We encourage reading to take place at least 5 times a week. Whilst this sounds like a lot, children are reading all of the time. We ask for your support in logging it in their reading records which they should bring to school daily.



The text that we will be working from is I was a rat! by Phillip Pullman. We will be writing an alternative ending for the story and a non fiction report.
