In Year 4, we have a jam-packed year filled with fantastic topics, fun trips and visitors, swimming lessons and lots of learning.
Throughout the year, our topics are: I am Warrior (a historical journey to the Roman Empire), Burps, Bottoms and Bile (how our digestive system works), The Science of Sound (how sound travels and how to change the pitch of sound), Pharaohs (a fantastic insight into life in Ancient Egypt) and Habitats (classifying animals, food chains and exploring different habitats).
We read a wide range of non-fiction and fiction books over the year, many of which are linked to our topic, so that the children can immerse themselves in their topic and have a broad learning experience.
In Year 4, not only do the children enjoy a weekly PE lesson, they also have weekly swimming lessons. PE takes place first thing on a Monday morning and is led by our fantastic PE team and swimming is on Friday afternoon.
In order to support your child’s learning and progression further, please encourage them to read daily, both independently and out loud as this will improve fluency. Spellings will be sent home weekly, to be learnt each week for a class test and times tables should be practised daily. The children can access Times tables Rockstars online, and enjoy beating their own targets and competing with their peers to move up the leader board.
Our Year 4 blog is kept up to date with all of the interesting and fun activities that take place over the year. Take a look and see!
