Welcome!
Autumn Term
We are so excited to get started with the new academic year! This term, we will be revisiting the Stone/Bronze/Iron Ages. We will be recapping the learning covered in Year 3 and deepening it through the use of artefacts and research. Similarly, we will be revisiting the topic of Weathering in Geography and linking this to Rocks, Fossils and Soils in Science. In RE, we will be exploring and comparing Christianity and Hinduism - considering how beliefs and practices vary between different religions. In Art, we will be exploring The Renaissance and, more specifically, the work of Leonardo Da Vinci. Finally, Year 4 will be utilising their computing skills in DT to design their own app!
English
In English this term, will be looking at various texts to help us develop key writing skills. We will be kick starting the year by exploring the book 'Africa, Amazing Africa' by Atinuke. We will be using this text to develop 

Maths
As the class progress into Year 4, they will start to explore place value within four digit numbers. We will be using a range of resources to recognise the value of digits and to deepen our understanding of regrouping. We will also be building on our understanding of addition and subtraction and working on our times tables recall.
Science
In Science, we will be revisiting the topic of 'Investigating Materials' - focusing on Rocks, Fossils and Soils. We will be building on our learning on Year 3. As a class we will be planning and carrying out investigations, developing scientific generalisations from the experiment results.
Something to look forward to:
During our transition day at the end of last year, the children said they were looking forward to starting weekly swimming lessons! They also explained that they were excited to be role models for the new Year 3 class on the KS2 playground.

Multiplication Check

This year your child will be participating in the multiplication tables check in June. The purpose of the check is to determine whether your child can fluently recall their times tables up to 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will also help your child’s school to identify if your child may need additional support.
