The Year 4 Team
Welcome to Year 4
We are incredibly excited for a fun and fulfilling academic year. There will be many exciting opportunities for the children to be challenged and motivated, as well as develop their independence and resilience.
In Year 4, we first study Ancient Greece and Persia, looking at the culture and legacy that was left. We then discover the devastation and wonder of Volcanoes and Mountains before learning about Alexander the Great and the Roman Empire, and their effect on Britain. Children will incorporate lots of outdoor learning in the Summer term for Geography; utilising our Woodland Learning Zone. Trips throughout the year will help enrich their understanding of what they have learnt.
You can find a topic web covering all our focused learning throughout the year here too.
We hope throughout Year 4 the children will achieve a Pen Licence and develop great confidence with their multiplication knowledge of all times tables up to 12, ready for the MTC (Multiplication Times Table Check) later in the year.
The Year 4 curriculum builds on what children have already learned in KS1 and Year 3 and inspires our pupils to achieve the very best they can throughout the year and their school life.
Please find a video below explaining the multiplication tables check (MTC), which children will sit in the summer term of Year 4.
