Welcome to Year 4!
During the Autumn term, we will be learning about rivers and their importance during our Geography lessons. We will then be moving on to studying the fascinating Romans in History.
In English, we will be reading engaging texts and writing in a range of styles including poetry and narrative. We will cover a variety of grammatical features and continue to practise spelling words from the year 3/4 spelling list.
In Maths we will be learning about formal methods for addition and subtraction. We will also continue to learn and practise times tables. Please help your child with this by encouraging them to practise regularly at home either on paper or through helpful websites such as TT Rockstars or Hit the Button.
In Science, our first topic is Electricity and we will be learning about circuits and conductors' - we will find out how electricity is generated and conduct experiments to find out how a circuit works. After half term we will be investigating sound.
In DT we will be using our knowledge from our science topic to make battery operated lights and in Art we will be exploring story-telling through drawing. Finally In RE we will be focusing on Buddhism and Christianity
Please remember, we have an open-door policy so if you have any concerns, please speak to us, email us via the admin email account or contact the office to arrange a convenient time to speak on the phone.
