Welcome to the Year 4 page where we are continuing our exciting journey through KS2. We’ve had a fantastic year so far and children have been growing and developing their skills and love of learning. There will continue to be fantastic opportunities for each child to grow in their knowledge and understanding of the world and their own personal development.
We have a great selection of exciting topics to look at in Year 4. We have started the year looking at various explorers and invaders throughout history. In Spring, we are learning about Geography through our topic Misty Mountain, Winding River. In the Summer term, we will learn about Ancient Civilisations through our History topic. We have a wide variety of experiences planned for the children to enjoy.
In Science, we will be investigating and learning about a variety of topics such as States of Matter, Grouping and Classifying, and Electrical Circuits and Conductors. The children have enjoyed lots of investigations and experiments so far and we have lots more engaging activities planned.
We started the year looking at Fresh Food, Good Food and continued the Autumn term with weaving. During the Spring term we will be learning about Functional and Fancy Fabrics.
To support your child at home, could you please listen to your child read at home three times a week (and record this in their reading diaries) and encourage them to practice TTRockstars. Homework is set weekly via Emile and Education City. There are also some spellings in the front of their reading records for them to learn at home.
We look forward to all of the opportunities through Year 4, seeing each child make progress academically and grow in their character and personality.
