Year 4




Welcome to Year 4!

This half term, we will be learning about North America in Geography.


In English, we will continue to develop our vocabulary. We will be creating poetry based off 'Still I Rise' by Maya Angelou and use Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp to inspire our own
narrative writing. 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 fractions and decimals. We will also be revisiting the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and focusing on fluency. We will continue to learn our 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, we will  be learning aboutLiving Things and Their Habitats’. We will find out the difference between a vertebrate and an invertebrate. 


In Art we producing still-life artwork and in DT we will be making kites. 


In RE we will be focusing on Buddhism and thinking about how Buddha’s teaching can help the world to be a better place. We will then be looking at Christianity and the Easter story.


 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.
