Building Learning Power:
Year 4 will be continuing to develop our learning muscles this term. We will be using our noticing skills to help us to find sophisticated vocabulary to use in our learning, asking probing questions and collaborating with our new learning partners.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis will be our class text, but what other magical worlds can you discover in your independent reading? As information text authors, we will create our own class rainforest books. These will include the exciting facts that we have learned about rainforest animals.
The year four teachers are all avid readers and are looking forward to enhancing the children’s passion for reading. Guided reading will include learning new roles to help us explore the text in more detail.
We will be practising spelling words using different suffixes. For example: -sure, -ation, -ture and –sion.
Our writing will be fantastic this term as we will use adverbs at the start of sentences and understand how complex sentences work.
What is the value of the underlined digit?
This half term the children will be deepening their understanding and knowledge of place value.
We will be comparing and ordering numbers up to 10,000 Can you round 564 to the nearest 100?
The children in year 4 will focus on improving their rounding skills.
Further to this, the children will be consolidating their addition and subtraction, specifically with whole numbers up to 4 digits.
In addition to this, we will be ensuring the children have opportunities to practice their problem solving and reasoning
You might be feeling queasy in science as we learn the fascinating difference between humans and other animals. We will digest some facts about how food chains vary and create our own digestion model in the classroom.
How can we present the things we learn in different ways?
Art & Design Technology
- Where are the world’s rainforests?

These are questions that we will be exploring in our learning.
Fancy being the next David Beckham? The rest of year four will be learning to develop the skills to play football and cricket.
Year four are revising their greetings in French this term. Quel âge as-tu? Everyone in year four will be revising their numbers from 1-20.

This term children will be learning what is meant by a healthy lifestyle, maintaining positive wellbeing and ways of keeping emotionally and physically safe.
We will learn about rights and responsibilities and diversity and equality.
