Welcome to the Year 4 Homepage!

Summer Term: Second half

We hope you have all enjoyed the half-term holiday and are looking forward to our last term in Year 4!

In English, we are looking at one of Mrs Hover’s favourite books, ‘The Water Horse’ by Dick King-Smith.  We will be using our imagination to create maps and write letters about an unusual discovery washed up on the beach.  We will also report on the sightings of the legendary beast and write our own story inspired by ‘The Water Horse’.  Year 4 will enjoy studying the memorable characters in this classic children’s book alongside an exploration of the setting – the majestic landscape of the Scottish Highlands!

After a fantastic trip marching around Chester, we will be learning more about the Romans in Topic and D&T including a fascinating insight into Roman banquets!  In Science, we will be learning about Animals including Humans and looking further at Sikhism in RE.

SRE will also feature this term within our Science Topic: The main stages of the human lifecycle. Physical and emotional changes that happen when a child grows up.

We will be continuing with Time in Maths and then we will move on to look at Statistics (e.g. bar charts, pictograms, tables) and Geometry (e.g. properties of 2D shapes and coordinates on a grid). Remember to use clocks around the house and ‘Topmarks’ to practise analogue, 12hr digital time and 24hr time!

'Music For Life' lessons will continue and the children are doing really well learning how to play guitar.  In the next few weeks, we will be sending out information about the ‘Music For Life’ concert at Northgate Arena on Monday 15th July 6-7.30pm. 

Please see the Curriculum Overview tab above and the medium term plans below if you would like any more information.
