This term (Autumn 1) our Global Theme is 'Identity and Diversity'.  We will aim to understand the diversity of cultures and societies within own experience and identify and value the contributions of different cultures to our lives.

 

Our big Geography question is 'What happens to our water?'.  We will learn about the water cycle and link this with our science work on 'States of Matter'. We are looking forward to finding out more about solids, liquids and gases!  Please see the science knowledge organiser below.

Spellings

Below are a list of Year 4 spellings that we will focus on each week. The children will be given their new spellings on a Friday and will be given a dictation to write to show they have understood the spelling pattern the following Friday.

TT Rockstars

TT Rockstars is a fantastic and fun way for your child to practise their times tables. They will be set the times tables they currently need to practise to help them to become secure with each table and improve their speed.

We have a display in the classroom where the children can move their names up as they achieve a new rock status. Playing in 'Studio' will reward them with a higher rock status!

In the Summer Term Year 4 children nationally take part in a times tables test.  They are expected to know all their times tables up to 12x12 and be able to answer every question in under 6 seconds. Playing TTRS in 'Soundcheck' is a very good example of what the test will be like.
