Year 4 Information

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.

 

 

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.

 

Autumn Term

Year 4 Roman Invasion! We are ready to be rampaged by facts and information about all things Roman. We will find out what daily life was like then, and what made the Roman Empire so successful. We will look at their houses and cities what they have brought to England that we still enjoy now. As well, we will be learning about some of the important events, battles and key historical figures from that time. Through studying some Army methods and techniques used to conquer parts of Europe and the UK, we are confident that the strength of Boudica’s Army will be able to halt the invading Romans, and will send them back. Or will she?

 

Year 4

PE

October

We combined our year 4 classes to practice some football drills in PE. We looked at handling and control of the ball. During our indoor PE lesson we have been working on balance. It is all in preparation for our gymnastic competition at the end of this half term.

Year 4

Maths

September

We worked together to place numbers on a number line in Maths. We then discussed our reasoning. We also worked together to create numbers from different digits and then order them.

Year 4

English

September

For English, we worked in a group to select the writing features of our model text. This helped us to recognise important elements to include in our own writing.

 

Year 4

Place Values

September

We have been settling into the year 4 routines. In maths we spent some time working in groups to think about place value.

Year 4

Class Rules

September

We worked together in groups and then as a class to choose 5 rules for our year 4 classroom. We enjoyed sharing some of our ideas with the class
We have created some spaghetti art! After looking at examples of art from Andy Goldsworthy, we made our own using some of his techniques.

Year 4

I-Pads

September

We had an opportunity to use I-pads and think about coding. We followed instructions to direct a sprite to move in different ways.

Year 4

Roman Research

September

We have done some research with the computers. In ICT we logged onto the computers before finding our research page about Romans. This has helped to work towards a topic-based word mat for us to use throughout the term.
