Welcome to our Year 4 Class Page.
We are incredibly excited for a fun and fulfilling Autumn Term in Year 4!
There will be many exciting opportunities for the children to be challenged and motivated, as well as develop their independence.
We are looking forward to the Autumn Term when we will be learning about the Romans in History and the world’s climate zones in Geography, as well as becoming creative scientists as we learn all about sound!
Our English learning in the first half of the Autumn Term will have a focus on building up our narrative skills through exploring powerful story openings. We will have the opportunities to read a range of poetry and discuss the sounds and language used. In the second half of the Autumn Term, we will study a wonderful fantasy novel. We will also be continuing with weekly handwriting and grammar sessions.
In Mathematics this term, we will be building a solid understanding of place value using 4-digit numbers, we will be exploring measurement and we will be developing our understanding of multiplication and division.
In RE, we will be learning about families in our topic ‘People’. We will focus on how Jesus’ family tree helps us to understand how Jesus had a family like our own and those members of this family tree lead and help to guide our Christian beliefs. Through our topic ‘Belonging’, we will explore how, through Baptism and Confirmation, people are given the gift of the Holy Spirit and are called to respond in their lives. We will also learn about other faiths through a study of Judaism.
At the end of the Autumn Term, Year 4 will participate in the Carol Service.
The exciting Year 4 curriculum raises expectations and inspires our pupils to achieve the very best they can throughout the year and their school life.
