What we are learning this Year/Term

Year 4 is an important year, it is a time to consolidate learning so far, learn new skills and become confident learners.

Year 4 Trips

Please hand in the whole school trip letter to Chessington when you can and make sure payments are made on ParentPay.

We will also be visiting Battersea Park on Monday 1st July (if it rains on that day we will go on Tuesday 2nd July) to draw the River Thames.

A busy term also sees us link up with St. Andrews School at the Migration Museum on Tuesday 9th July.

Homework

We give English or topic related homework every week as well as Maths homework. We will be sending extra sheets home. These are not compulsory and if children don’t do it they will not be punished. However, whatever extra work they do will ultimately only benefit them!

Please continue to practice times tables. By the end of Year 4 children are expected to know their times tables to 12 and division facts related to it. For example, if they know 6 x 4 = 24 they need to know 24 ÷ 6 = 4 and 24 ÷ 4 = 6 .

Reading is expected to happen every day and spellings are given weekly. The spelling list for the year is included below.

English

The English curriculum will continue with the development of spoken language, reading and writing skills. Children will develop their reading comprehension skills as well as learn spellings, punctuation and grammar. They will learn new skills and contexts for writing based on core texts. This term we will be looking at adventure story ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’ by Philip Reeve. Children will be encouraged to apply their writing skills to other areas of the curriculum.

Maths

The National Curriculum for Maths is being taught using the ‘Singapore Maths’ approach.

Children will develop their knowledge, understanding and skills in geometry, position and movement and finally roman numerals.

They will also further develop their knowledge and skills in mental maths, investigations and word problems based on Singapore Maths.

Science

Our Science topic this term will be ‘Dangers to Living Things’. By the end of the topic we will have constructed and interpreted a variety of food chains and will have identified the producer, predator and prey. We will have stated how flood and fire affect living things including the availability of food, and how humans can reduce the effects of changes to the environment. Finally  they will have suggested ways of reducing human impact on environments and the living things within them.

Topic

In Geography we will be learning about ‘Rivers’. We will look at how raindrops are formed and then follow their journey through the water cycle.

PSHE

In PSHE we will be discussing how ‘Going for Goals’ is important in our life.

Art

In Art this term we are looking at Water. We will be looking at water themes through art history. We will then use pencils, pastels and paints to draw water in different ways. This will culminate with our trip to draw the River Thames.

PE

In PE, the children will be taught by professional sport coaches once a week. In addition they will practice ball skills, teamwork and games with their Class Teacher.

Islamic Studies and Arabic

Children will continue to revise surahs from the Holy Qur’an as well as duas. They will continue learning Arabic from our specialist Arabic/Islamic Studies teacher.

Music

In the Music curriculum, the pupils will compose a class nasheed.
