In Year 4 the children will build on their reading, writing and maths skills. They are encouraged to read at home every night and discuss and ask questions about what they have read. They will write for a variety of different purposes and audiences, incorporating the skills they learn. Children are expected to apply these writing skills in other areas of the curriculum. In maths, children will work with numbers up to 10,000. They will learn written methods for the four operations and apply skills through problem solving and reasoning.
Our topics in the foundation subjects include: Road Trip USA, Potions and Traders and Raiders, where children will combine their reading, writing and maths skills with skills from other areas of the curriculum such as history, geography and science. In RE, the children will learn about the customs and beliefs of the world’s major religions.
