Welcome to Year Four 2019/20!

What have we been up to?

We have been busy thinking of our hopes and aspirations for Year 4, completing Baseline assessments and beginning our new topic in every subject! We can't wait to share our work and progress with you at Parent's Evening at the end of this half term. Please keep your eye on our Twitter Page where Mrs Scotson shares our best work each week!

English and Maths

English

This term we will be studying 'The Day the Crayons Quit' by Drew Daywalt. We will explore, read and write using this book as inspiration to create many pieces of writing in different genres to further our skills and learning in line with the Y4 Curriculum.  

Maths

As we enter Y4 we will be developing their knowledge of number and place value (now including 4 digit numbers), addition and subtraction, properties of shape, multiplication and division. We will also be introduced to decimal numbers.

RE

‘The Bible'

 Throughout our topic The Bible we will learn that the Bible tells us about God and his love for us. We will explore Old Testament stories and be introduced to some important religious themes like trusting in God and prayer. We will also develop our research skills by looking up Bible references.

Non-Core Curriculum

  • Geography/History: We will gain an understanding of the ancient Greeks linked with the Geography topic of a study of Europe’s rivers and mountains.
  • Art/DT: We will create their own Ancient Greek art, after studying traditional patterns.
  • Music: We will learn a range of skills in our weekly keyboard lessons with Fran.
  • French: We will develop a knowledge of the French language by applying language learned to new scenarios.  We’ll be asking and answering questions independently and beginning to write for meaning.
  • PE: Gymnastics: We will develop our ability to travel in a variety of ways, and our knowledge of Mirror/Match & Canon & Unison.

What's in store for Year 4?
