Year 4 Learning

In year 4 we explore award winning texts such as: The Iron Man, Varjak Paw and Street child, using hot seating, debating, conscious alley and other drama techniques, the text comes alive.  We ensure their writing covers a range of genres and develop different writing styles.

In IPC we cover areas such as: Do you live around here? Fashion and Explorers and Adventurers. Children have the opportunity to supplement their learning with a number of educational visits and local walks, such as tutoring Territorial Army survival techniques, local museums, distinguished visitors and the Golden Hinde.

It is a year in which we are applying and developing our understanding of mathematical skills, moving the children towards standard written methods and using more efficient strategies.

Curriculum Targets

Please find attached the targets year 4 are working towards this year.    The work towards achieving these targets will be covered in school but you can also help your child by checking their homework and looking for evidence of their targets in what they do.  Also please ensure they read to an adult every night.  If you have any questions about these targets please speak to your child's class teacher or Mrs Lomax.
