Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Miss Russell, Mrs Kay and Mrs Daley are the teachers in Y4, supported by Mrs Etches and Mrs Chaplin.

If you work hard and try your best, Y4 will be a fun, enjoyable and rewarding time.

Working together positively and learning the skills of effective communication and co-operation will help you have a successful year.

Our Learning

English

We explore a range of different genres including instructions, recounts, news reports, narratives and we even write our own myth. We also look at a variety of poems and stories by different authors including Paddington and The Firework Maker's Daughter. 

Make sure you practise your spellings and your handwriting. Our spelling tests are always on a Friday. 

Remember to read regularly and ask an adult to sign your Contact Book so that you can move up the reading challenge!

Maths

We will build on our mathematical skills and develop our strategies with problem solving, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be learning about Roman numerals and why our number system changed. By the end of Year 4, you need to know all of your timestables so make sure your practise lots at home!  

 

Music

In Year 4, we learn how to play the violin. Our lessons are every Thursday and at the end of the year, we have a concert which is lots of fun. 

Science

We continue to improve our scientific skills and knowledge across our four themes. 

We will look at: 

  • Green Plants
  • Variation and Classification
  • Grouping and Classifying Materials
  • Changing Materials
  • Separating Materials
  • The Earth and Beyond

History, Geography, Music, Art and D&T will be taught through the four themes:

The Rampaging Romans – What did the Romans do for us? 

Wild Earth - What makes the Earth angry?

Ancient Greece - Who were the Ancient Greeks?

Rule Britannia - What makes Britain Great?

At home, try to;

  • Get into a Home Learning routine.
  • Sit quietly and read - remember to ask an adult to update your Home School Contact Book.
  • Learn those tricky spellings.
  • Play games to remember your tables (we’ll be learning up to 12 x 12!).
  • Complete three Home Learning Challenges each half term.

 

BY WORKING TOGETHER, WE MAKE OUR LEARNING FUN!

Be a superstar and enjoy Year 4!
