Hello! Welcome to Year 4, I am Miss Stratton.
Year 4 is about team building and promoting independence. We encourage the children to be collaborative learners and active members of their class. All pupils are expected to learn all multiplication facts up to twelve times table and we have weekly spelling tests too.
As part of our Science curriculum, we learn about sound, electricity, states of matter, living things and the environment.
During the Autumn term, the children’s topics are ‘Early Civilisations’ and ‘Village Settlers’. They learn about the daily life of some of the significant Early Civilisations and position them on a timeline. During the Spring term, we learn about The Mayans, their culture and artefacts. We also study a unit called ‘European Neighbours’, where the children study maps and explore the names and locations of some European countries.
