Welcome to the Year 4 Homepage!

Autumn Term: First half

 

 

We hope you have all had lots of fun this summer and are looking forward to starting Year 4!

Our theme for this term is the Natural Environment and Conservation.

In English, we will be looking at Anthony Browne's book, 'Gorilla'.  We will read the story and look carefully at his clever and puzzling illustrations. To help us find out more about gorillas, this book will be read alongside the non-fiction books, 'Gorilla Journal' by Caroline Franklin and 'Ape' by Martin Jenkins.  After researching gorillas, including the critically endangered mountain gorillas, we will look at wildlife closer to home in the second half of the Autumn term.

Our D&T project is a secret but will link to this theme too! 

In Science, we will be looking at 'Living things and their habitats' and our Geography topic this term is a European study using geographical skills with a focus on France.  We will be looking at Christianity in RE.

 

During the Autumn term, we will be focusing on the following themes in Maths:

 

Number: Place Value

 

Number: Addition and Subtraction

 

Measurement: Length and Perimeter

 

Number: Multiplication and Division

 

Remember to keep practising your times tables, using ‘Times Table Rockstars’ and please see Year 4’s Maths Class Page for further games and activities.

 

On Monday afternoons, we will be learning to play Guitar with Simon, Jack and John, our 'Music For Life' teachers.  In the Spring term, the children will be playing Samba instruments and in the summer term they will learn brass instruments.  There will be two mini concerts at school and the dates are Monday 2nd December (Guitar) and Monday 30th March (Samba).  In the Summer term, there is the Northgate Arena Concert (Brass) on Monday 13th July (approx. 7pm) where our Year 4 children will play alongside children from other schools.
