Welcome to Year 4. 

We are Lilac Class!

The adults in Lilac Class are Miss Stevens and Mrs Ali.

What are we learning about this half term?

In Maths, we are developing our key skills in multiplication and division, including how to calculate area and perimeter. In Year 4, rapid recall of multiplication and division facts are focused on throughout the year in order to build fluency for a successful Multiplication Check.

In English, we are exploring the text 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. Our Hook lesson will consist of the children watching a video and then describing what life might have been like in a Victorian Workhouse.

In Geography, we will be building upon our understanding of settlements and finding out what it takes to build the perfect settlement.

In Science, we are exploring the human digestive system and learning all about the functions of the different types of teeth we have!

In PSHE, we are developing our ability to manage our feelings.

In Computing, we are exploring the importance of online safety and how to manage our online information.

At the end of this half term, we will be taking part in DT Dazzle Days to find out the truth about "health" bars and how we can improve them!

Take a look at our Curriculum Year Group Plan below to find out what else we will be learning about in Year 4 this year. Remember, you can find the knowledge organisers for each unit on Class Dojo – please share these with your children and discuss the key vocabulary!
