What Are Year 4 Learning?

Our theme this term is titled Planet in Peril. In this we will be journeying into the environmental impact of deforestation, pollution and the resultant impact on local and global communities. However, the light of hope through responsibility for our planet, both collective and individual, will shine through.

Over the last couple of weeks we have been exploring the features of recounts through the book, ‘The Vanishing Rainforest.’  This has included grammatical features, drama and role play. In the next fortnight, we will be writing our own recount on this theme of deforestation in English and have linked this to geography and science through the study of biomes, habitats, adaptation and interdependence.

Home Learning

Home Learning is given to the children each Monday and needs to be returned by Friday morning. Spellings and times tables tests are conducted each Friday.

Reading: The Reading Records will be checked every Friday. Each child's book should be signed by an adult at least three times every week. Children do need to bring their Reading Record in every day as we endeavour to hear a selection of children read daily.

Times Table Check

In early June, the children will be taking part in the national Multiplication Tables Check. They are expected to know all the times tables, up to 12 x 12, by this point. Please ensure your child practises regularly. Logging on to and using TimesTables RockStars will help with this.
