All about Year 4

In year 4 children are placed in the upper end of school and it is a year in which they grow and mature, taking on responsibility and have the opportunity to experience many new things. Our East Park 8 values will underpin life in Year 4 and each week a child in each class will be chosen as ‘Star of the Week’ linked to a specific value that they have demonstrated. A ‘Learner of the Week’ will also be selected for a child who has worked hard and has shown effort within their learning. The following topics will lead the learning in foundation subjects this year:

Autumn Term

Romans – children will develop their history skills and learn about life in Roman times. They can look forward to enjoying a Roman day where they are immersed into all things Roman. Including an archaeological dig.

Spring Term

Arctic – This topic is one of our favourites and provides children with the opportunity to learn about life on a different continent. They will use their geographical skills to locate different places on the map and find out what life is like for an Inuit. As well as, looking at explorers.

Summer Term

Turrets and Tiaras – children will develop their history skills by learning about castles and the Royal family. They will explore castle life and how castles were designed, built and developed over the years.

Supporting your child at home

Each week children in Year 4 will have a reading book and a library book to take home. Children will also bring home a weekly list of spellings to learn on Mondays and spelling tests will take place on Mondays too. Children will also bring home a termly homework project sheet at the start of each full term
