Year 4 Information

Summer Term

We are keen for parents to support the children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help with this we produce Topic Overviews for each term outlining our main topics.

Please download our Information Booklet to find out more about the routines and expectations in Year 4. You may also wish to take a look at the Y4 Curriculum Map, which shows you the topics we will be covering in different subjects over the course of the year. Please talk to us if you would like more information.

What's been happeningYear 4


Year 4 have been learning about area in maths. First we looked at a square centimetre and estimated how many would cover the surface of different items in our classroom. Then we used square centimetre paper to estimate and then count the squares of the area of different shapes. Finally we looked at a square metre and discussed that in a similar way.


Year 4

Roman Day


What's been happeningYear 4


Year 4 have been looking at persuasive adverts this term in English. They started off with a ‘Hook’ taking part in a Dragon’s Den type activity where they had to design and ‘ sell’ a product to the Dragons! The children really enjoyed this activity and were very persuasive!
They have then been identifying the features of a persuasive advert and thinking about how to use these features in their own adverts for a Roman House.


Year 4

A Love of Reading

This term we have enjoyed delving into books such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid, David Williams’ series and Harry Potter. We enjoy reading striving to read regularly at both home and school.


Year 4

Roman Villas

We have employed our research skills, enjoying researching many aspects of Roman Britain, including learning about the structure of a roman villa and what each room was used for.


Year 4

Making Shields

Things got a little messy when we were making the shields. However, we had loads of fun creating, painting and constructing our shields. We persevered even when challenges arose and worked together to solve different problems. We shared our resources and materials. We are looking forward to testing our shields out by completing different shield formations.


Year 4

Roman Britain

As part of our History and Design and Technology units we have been designing and creating Roman Shields. To begin the process we researched about Roman Shields. We then designed our own shields, taking into consideration, shape, colours and design features.
