Year 4


Welcome to Year 4

Spring

Welcome to year 4

Thank you for visiting our year 4 page. Here you will find termly updates on how our curriculum looks.

As mathematicians, we will deepen our knowledge of multiplication and division. Learners will explore the definitions of key vocabulary such as factor pairs and square roots. Mathematicians will solve problems involving multiplying and adding, including using the distributive law to multiply two digit numbers by one digit.

As readers and writers we will explore ‘The Whale’ and ‘King of the Cloud Forest’. On Tuesdays we explore Picture News. Learners will retrieve and infer from the information to develop their comprehension skills. DEAR (Drop everything and read) will take place on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.

Our topic is Misty Mountains Winding Rivers. During this topic we will learn about features of a river, how mountains are formed. Learners will learn to use maps and atlases effectively. We will develop our knowledge of earthquakes and volcanoes.

Please remember we have P.E on Tuesdays and Swimming on Fridays.
