Coalway Junior School

Year 4, Classes 3 & 4

Welcome to Year 4!


Welcome to Year 4 with Mr Fishwick, Mrs Evans, Mrs Russell, Mrs Lusted and Miss Aston.

We have got a fun packed term ahead. We will be learning all about the Romans coming to Britain as well as designing and making our own Roman shoe. In English, we will learn all about Hercules and his twelve labours and also the creators of Rome, Romulus and Remus. These stories will inspire you with lots of ideas for your creative writing which we can’t wait to enjoy reading.


Weekly Homework Tasks

  • You must read at least 3 times each week to an adult at home. Each time you read, you must get your reading record signed by an adult. Please bring this into school every Friday to be checked.
  • Remember to complete your My Maths homework. This will help you to practise what we have been learning in class.
  • We want to be super spellers! You need to use Spelling Shed at least 5 times each week. This will help you to understand the Year 4 spelling patterns as well as practice spelling rules from previous years.  


Year 4 Times Table wizards!

In Year 4, we have the task of learning all of our times tables up to 12 times. This takes lots of practice! We will help in class but you will need to put a lot of effort in at home so that you know each fact instantly! It’s a challenge but we know you can do it if you try really hard and put the work in.

As well as using TTRockstars using your school login, here are some websites to help you –



Your PE t-shirts should be in your house colour and clothes with logos and stripes should not be worn.

You will need to bring your indoor PE kit and leave it in your locker to change into for the lesson. Our indoor PE lesson will take place on a Monday afternoon.

Every Friday, you will need to wear your outdoor PE kit to school so you are dressed ready for the

lesson. Please make sure you are wearing warmer PE kit (jogging bottoms and sweatshirt) during the colder months.
