Year 4

“Learning is an active process. We learn by doing”

Dale Carnegie

                         

Year 4 is an exciting year for our children because they are becoming familiar with the learning and expectations as junior learners.

During Year 4 we provide opportunities for children to become independent thinkers, learners and decision makers.  They start this school year learning to write in pen, which helps them develop using neat and joined handwriting and showing pride in the presentation of their work.

Since 2020, all Year 4 children in England are required to complete a Multiplication Tables Check in the summer term.  Therefore, the children will be working hard during Year 4 to learn their multiplication tables, playing lots of games, doing activities and lots of practice in class to ensure that they become fluent in this. Please continue to use Times Table Rock Stars at home to support their learning.

The teachers that will be supporting the children this year are Mrs Friar, Mrs Husain, Mr Robertshaw, Mrs Hatch, Mrs Carter and our teaching assistants are Mrs Warren and Mrs Dar.

The topics and activities we will be doing in Year 4 are as follows:

 

The Ancient Greeks

During this topic, the children will be learning about life in Ancient Greece, locating Greece on a world map, finding out about famous Ancient Greeks, their lifestyles and famous myths and legends connected to this period of world history.

Volcanoes

In this topic the children will learn about where in the world volcanoes are found, how a volcano is formed, different types of volcanoes and what happens when a volcano erupts. The most exciting part of this topic will be when the children make their own active volcanoes!

The Roman Empire

Children will learn aspects of how the Roman Empire was founded and key events relating to the Roman invasion of Britain, briefly looking at Britain during Roman times through tribes such as the Celts. They will also learn about life as a Roman, their homes, the way they dressed and what they ate. The highlight of this topic is a visit to the wonderful Dewa Roman Experience in Chester in the summer term.
