Year 4

Welcome to the Year 4 home page

We are well underway with all of our exciting topics and it's lovely to see the children excited for the new school year.

The Nowhere Emporium, our guided reading book, has really grabbed everyone’s imagination. The children are on a magical and exciting journey with Ellie, Daniel and Mr Silver making predictions about what will happen next, learning about the fantasy genre and giving opinions about what they have read so far.

The Nowhere Emporium has been the focus of our English lessons too. The children have been describing their own magical shopkeeper, written an exciting, action-packed chase sequence and have invented a room fit for the Nowhere Emporium.

In maths, we have been learning how to add and subtract 4 digit numbers, solving problems along the way.

Our topic work is just as exciting! We are learning all about Roman life including; where they lived, what they ate, what they learnt at school and what family life was like. We are also in the process of making our very own Roman Togas and Bullas, ready for a Roman Feast in the Spring term!

In Geography, we are learning all about Europe; locating countries, capital cities and landmarks. Science has been ‘electrifying.’ We have been building circuits, making switches and learning about power sources.

 We have had an action packed half term in PE, getting fit in bootcamp, putting our football skills to the test in invaders and dancing our hearts out to rock and roll and much more! Year 4 have also been trialling the Golden Mile, trying to improve their fitness and the number of laps they can manage each week.
