Thank you to the PTA and all of their efforts into turning this dream into reality! Please support the PTA by purchasing your 'Beats n Eats' tickets on sale at the beginning and end of each day this week. Thank you

LEARNING IN YEAR 4

In Year 4 children are encouraged to reach their full potential in every aspect of their learning and wider school achievements. They will learn to apply their initiative as they become more confident and independent learners.
As well as lessons providing children with a challenge, they are stimulating and fun! Children are given plenty of opportunities for ‘hands-on’ experiences as well as opportunities to share and exhibit their work.
Year 4 children are given the opportunity to take greater ownership over their learning this year and are encouraged to manage their own progress by working towards personal targets.
Having an enjoyment of learning is central to the ethos of year 4 and each child will receive the individual support and encouragement needed to be successful and proud of their achievements.
The best way you can help your child this year is to help them to complete their homework and to learn spellings and times tables each week.

On the rest of this page you will be able to find photographs, examples of children's work and information about what we are learning in class - including details of any exciting events or trips that are coming up!

Stay posted for updates.

Learning Goals
AUTUMN TERM

Our Topic work this half-term is around the theme of The Anglo-Saxons. This topic has a strong focus Geography but also covers aspects of Science, Maths, Art/D&T, Drama, Music and ICT learning objectives. It gives children a chance to take ownership over their own learning: Throughout the term the class will carry out group projects based on a related theme of their own choice as well.


In Science, our work will also revolve around the theme of 'Animals including humans'! We will focus on why the body needs a balanced diet and how we digest food. We will compare the diets of humans and a range of animals and take part in a study on teeth. After a brief revision of previous objectives, investigations will be carried out to discover how food is digested in the body and what causes tooth decay. Children will use their skills and knowledge to organise and carry out experiments and investigations themselves, both independently and working in groups.

In English, we will initiallybe working on non-fiction and will be studying biographies and write our on non-chronological reports. We will then move on to poetry. Throughout, children will also develop theirs writing and editing skills. Children will be developing their writing throughout and will apply and develop their punctuation, grammar and spelling strategies. As well as reading and responding to a variety of texts, there will be plenty of opportunity for children to engage in drama and discussion.

In Maths, children will engage in a variety of mathematical challenges including word problems, practical activities and mental maths skills. As well as revising, recapping and developing upon many of the more challenging areas covered throughout last year, we will be holding weekly times tables challenges; a speedy recall of our times tables facts will help throughout the year as we cover new objectives. Ask your son/daughter about our times tables wall! A more detailed breakdown of our objectives can be obtained on request.
Homework
Homework is an important element of learning and will help children to consolidate their understanding of work carried out in class. It is designed to meet the needs of each child and you are strongly encouraged to support your child when he/she completes it.

Literacy will be given out on a Tuesday and handed in on a Friday and Numeracy homework will be given out on a Friday and given in on a Monday.
Alongside this work children will be given a set of spellings and times tables to learn which they will be tested on every Friday.
