Autumn Term 2020

Welcome to Year 4! This term, in Mathematics, pupils will be studying the following units; Place Value, Addition & Subtraction, Multiplication & Division and Perimeter. We will be ensuring that pupils learn their multiplication facts up to 12 x 12 in a fun and engaging way to ensure they are confident and efficient for the statutory assessment in June 2021. We are excited to introduce a new IPC Topic this year entitled, ‘Olympics: Success with Silver’ The children will study the life, culture and legacy of Ancient Greece including the evolution of the Olympics over time; pupils will then transfer this knowledge and develop it further to study and learn about the next host city of the Olympic games. Additionally, in Geography, pupils will carry out a comparison of a European neighbour. In Art and Design & Technology, pupils will be learning about the techniques and skills required to enable them to design, plan and make their own piece of Ancient Greek pottery encompassing their seamless pattern designs. In Science, Pupils will begin the term learning about electricity: pupils will learn about electrical safety and circuits. In the second half of the term, children will learn about the different states of matter and materials. On the sporting front, Mr Tolman, Mr Melville and the Sports Coaches will lead weekly P.E lessons:

Curriculum overview

We started using the International Primary Curriculum in September 2016. You can find more details of it on the Curriculum and Subject pages on the menu to the left. At the beginning of every unit of study we will be sending out a letter to parents that explains the sort of things that are being covered in the unit. Copies of these letters are available from the links below, as well as an overview for this year group.
