In Year 4, we are keen for the children to become independent learners, and to edit and improve their work with increasing confidence as the year goes on. Our main focus is on Times Tables knowledge and their corresponding division facts up to 12 x 12. Children who are demonstrating Times Table fluency are invited to earn their Times Tables badge, which is awarded by Mr Lindsay.

We have a rich curriculum with many creative opportunities. We will be using a variety of ways to make learning interesting and fun for the children. These will include the use of ICT, ART and specialist teachers to enhance and embed learning cross-curricularly.

Some of the topics children will enjoy in Year 4 include:

  • The Romans
  • The Greeks
  • Mountains
  • Sustainability
  • States of Matter
  • Electricity
  • Habitats
  • Perspective drawing
  • The works of John Constable

We aim to arrange Parent Consultation meetings twice a year to set your child’s targets and discuss progress. If you would like to speak to us at any other time, please feel free to message us on Class Dojo.

Please remember:

•your child needs a clear, re-usable plastic bottle filled with water for use in the classroom

•PE kit must be named with appropriate footwear

•School dinners are now cashless for non-free school meal children. Please see the office for further information if you have not set this up.

•Book bags, Book Club and Home Link books must be brought to school daily.
