Year 4H 2023 - 2024
Welcome to 4H
Welcome back after the Christmas break!
Welcome back in 2024! We are looking forward to some exciting topics and learning opportunities. The first term went by in a flash and this Spring term will go by very quickly too.
The first half of the term we do Geography. Year 4 will be ‘Investigating Rivers’ which links in our first Science unit of ‘States of Matter’. In Science, we have the first of three biology units: Animals including Humans. This is a very hands on topic where children study the human digestive system and human and animal teeth this builds on work in Year 3 on human nutrition, the skeleton system and muscle groups.
In English, we will be starting with instructions and explanations before moving onto a story that finds the character in need of our help.
In maths we have started with multiplication calculations. Times tables remain an important focus in Year 4, lots of children are making good use of Times Table Rockstars and making great progress. This week we have made a start exploring fractions.
In R.E., we will be exploring Jesus as the Son of God, looking at the many wondrous acts Jesus performed.
Swimming continues right on through the Spring and Summer terms and looks to consolidate the progress made in the Autumn lesson. P.E. in school is continues with Outdoor Games. Please can you ensure that your child has their P.E kit in school on Thursdays.
Thank you for your continued support.
Year 4 team!
