Year 4  

Rights Respecting Articles in Child Friendly Language


 Year 4 is another important yet exciting year in your child’s learning. Throughout the year, they will continue to develop their writing skills through a range of high quality engaging texts. Your child will continue to write at length with a focus on purpose and audience. By the end of the year, they should have learned all of their times tables facts (for the times tables 1 to 12).

The Year 4 Team

In 4B there is Miss Boisseau, in 4F there is Miss French and in 4M there is Miss Manning. All three classes are supported by Mrs Patel.



What we are learning this term

 In the Spring term, our topic is ‘Active Planet’ as part of our ‘We are Geographers’ topic. We will be learning about volcanoes and earthquakes. We will be looking at where these are located and learning about life in volcanic areas. 

In English, we will be reading ‘Escape from Pompeii ’ and ‘Elephants of the Tsunami’ by Jana Laiz. The children will be given the opportunity to write for a range of purposes, including story writing, diary entries and newspaper reports. 

In Maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division. We will be learning to multiply three numbers together and learning about  the associative law. We will be multiplying 2 and 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers.

How you can help at home  

 Times tables are done in school every week. Please check your child's answers and go over any mistakes with them each week.  Please  read with your child 5 times a week; this can be done using a book from the school library or home, or using out online reading scheme: Bug Club. Please record any reading at home in your child's reading diary.
