Welcome to year 4 - a time for you to really establish yourself in Key Stage 2! This year will be filled with exciting challenges and chances to push yourself and learn new things. From swimming lessons to the timestables test, school trips, visitors in, play leaders and school council there's a place for everyone to shine this year. As well as participating in the acadmeic side of school you'll also have the opportunity to have a role in the classroom where you will feel like you're really contributing to the class. We look forward to working hard with you in Year 4! During the Autumn term, we will be studying Ancient Greece, which will cover parts of the geography, history, art and literacy curriculum. We'll be looking at Ancient Greek stories to write our own myths and plays. Our focus for this half term in numeracy is place value: rounding, partitioning, number lines, comparing numbers and ordering. We will be working exceptionally hard on our arithmetic and especially on our quick recall of times tables. Guided reading takes place in our classroom every day where we work in small groups on personalised reading targets. There are 29 pupils in our class! We are a unique bunch and we have fun learning every day!
