Year 4 Information
Please download our Information Booklet to find out more about the routines and expectations in Year 4. You may also wish to take a look at the Y4 Curriculum Map, which shows you the topics we will be covering in different subjects over the course of the year. We also produce a Year 4 “News of the Week” bulletin that will be sent via Parent Mail each Friday. Please do talk to us if you would like more information.
We are keen for parents to support your children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help you do this, we produce a half-termly information sheet, outlining our main topics and giving suggestions for how you might follow them up at home:
No Nonsense Number Facts
4.1 Teacher (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday)
4.1 Teacher (Wednesday and Friday)
Year 4 have been enjoying our Topic on the Ancient Romans. They were certainly an interesting bunch, and very clever. They organised their armies extremely well and conquered most of the territory around the Mediterranean Sea, as well as arriving into Britain too. They had excellent architects and lived in beautiful houses. They loved sports and leisure activities although we weren’t so sure how much fun it would be watching people being thrown to the lions!
Upside Down Christmas Tree
Year 4 have gone all out for the ‘Upside Down Christmas’ theme. We made upside down Christmas Tree displays and decorated them with ‘baubles’ coloured in by the children. Each ‘bauble’ had a Christmas message which we have used instead of Christmas cards to cheer each other up!
Year 4 have really been enjoying our Science topic – SOUND!
They have found out about how sound travels (as vibrations) over distance as well as through solids, liquids and gases.
They put some of their ideas to the test after making string/cup telephones. They found that sound travelled more effectively when the string was straight and pulled tight. They also decided to put “obstacles” (pegs and pens) on the string to see if this would prevent the sound travelling as well. A loud, but informative lesson!
