Year 4 Ambition

Mrs Horrigan/Mrs Anderton


Ambition class have made a fantastic start to the new academic year. This year we are lucky to have two teachers, Mrs Horrigan and Mrs Anderton.


We are now well into our Year 4 Power Maths books. We are becoming fluent mathematicians, able to reason and problem solve, we strive hard each lesson to complete our set work so we can move onto a challenge!

We continue to work on our maths Big Maths. It’s very important that we all learn all our times tables, right up to 12! We have an important times table screening test at end of Year 4 that all children of a similar age will partake in.


Lots of our writing is based around our topic ‘What happened when The Romans came?

So far, we have completed diary entries, character descriptions and a Roman Culture booklet.


Ambition class love to read, we have all taken our first Star Reading test on the Chromebooks and we are now enjoying taking book tests on our reading books. It is important we read as often as we can, to an adult if possible, and then record in our reading records.


We learn 30 spellings each week for our Big Spell. Please feel free to remove the spelling sheet from your child’s homework book so they can continue to practice through the week. Homework is set Friday, due to be returned the following Wednesday.
