Welcome to Year 4!

Below contains details of the activities the children in Year 4 2017 - 2018 were involved in. Soon this will be updated with the great things our new Year 4 2018 - 2019 will be doing!

Summer Term


This term, our topic is science based and is all about our teeth and digestive system. The children have got a head start on the topic with some interesting and engaging pieces of homework completed over the Easter holiday. We started our topic off with a bang during Science Week with many stimulating tasks and finished the week with a hands on activity. The children thoroughly enjoyed making Aztec 'poo' and investigating how the digestive system works.


During our maths lessons, we are applying our knowledge and understanding beyond fluency and progressing onto completing reasoning and problem solving questions across the curriculum. We have recapped the place value of four digit numbers, rounding, negative numbers and ordering numbers. We will continue to consolidate our learning from this year.


In English lessons, we have started studying David Walliams' text 'Demon Dentist' and we are enthusiastic about finding out what happens to Alfie in the story. We spent the first week of term writing and performing poetry linked to our topic and took great delight in using our public speaking skills, while confidently presenting our poems to the rest of our year group.


We are extremely excited about the upcoming term and are looking forward to the interesting, busy weeks that lie ahead!
