Welcome to the Year 4 Homepage!

Autumn Term: First half


We hope you have all had a well-deserved break and are looking forward to starting Year 4!

In English, we will be looking at Anthony Browne's book, 'Gorilla' which will then lead to research based work using books such as 'Gorilla Journal' by Caroline Franklin and 'Ape' by Martin Jenkins. 

In the second half of the term we will be looking at poetry, and wildlife documentary film clips by David Attenborough and Giles Clark (Tigers about the house) where we will explore the theme, 'Act for Wildlife'.  This theme will also inspire our work in Art and D&T.

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.

In French lessons, we will learn how to greet each other and talk more about ourselves and then later in the term, we will learn the French names for animals and how to describe them.  We will be looking at Christianity in RE.

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 practise your times tables, please see the Topmarks website on the Maths class page.

On Mondays, we will be playing Samba instruments with Chris our 'Music For Life' teacher and different Games and Gymnastics skills will be taught in P.E.
