Spring 1 - What can the Romans teach us?

We will be travelling back in time to learn all things Roman this half term. In our writing lessons, we will be reading Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit and Volcanoes by Maria Gill. In history, we will be learning about the Roman Empire and starting to look at the impact the Romans had on Britain. We will also be learning a Roman dance in P.E., as well as practising our athletic skills.

In science, we will be learning about solids, liquids and gases in states of matter and in computing we will be taking part in The Hour of Coding, a global project to get people of all ages coding. Our PSHE this half term is focused on dreams and goals and we will be learning how Sikhs show their faith in R.E.

This term, Year 4 will have P.E. on Mondays and Thursday. Each child will need to bring their P.E. kit in on Monday and can leave it in school for the duration of the week. All children will need a white polo shirt, black shorts/joggers and trainers or P.E. pumps. Some of our P.E. lessons are outside so please dress accordingly. 

Looking back at Autumn 2

Home Reading

At Westfield, we expect all children to complete five reading sessions a week. These should be recorded in each child’s individual reading diary. Pupils' diaries are checked every morning by the class teacher and reading at home is worth two dojo points as a reward in class. Reading books will mostly be changed on a Tuesday and a Friday.  Each child should have 1 free choice book and 1 book band book. Please remember that you also have access to Bug Club where there are loads more books online for you to choose from! If you read online using Bug Club, this can be recorded in reading diaries also.



Homework will be set on google classrooms each Friday at 12pm. This will consist of 1 short quiz to test what we have learnt over the past week and 1 task. Children are expected to complete their homework by the following Wednesday. If you have any difficulties with the homework, please feel free to contact Miss Monaghan using the email addresses


Each Monday, we will complete a pre-teach spelling test on the words for that week.  Children will then be taught these spellings over the week, with a focus on applying the rule that is being taught.  Children are then expected to practise their spellings further at home using Spelling Shed. Spellings will be tested again each Friday. 

Online Learning Resources

Our children have access to a range of online resources to aid their learning. Here are the links to some useful websites that children can use whilst not in school, their usernames and passwords can be found in their School Planner.  All children are familiar with how to use these. Clicking on each name will take you to the website.

Covid-19 Bubble Closure

In the event of our bubble having to close, Miss Monaghan will provide remote learning through Google Classroom. 

It is a requirement that children access our remote learning platform on the days that they would usually attend school. It is important that good communication between school and parents/carers maintains during a bubble closure. We ask that all children respond to the daily task briefing on their Google Classroom homepage. This is so that the teacher can record who has been able to engage with the learning tasks.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office. 

Alternatively, you can contact Miss Monaghan directly via her school email address
