This year our children will be learning through a range of exciting topics, that will encourage their natural curiosity and develop their knowledge. 

This year 4CT will be learning through a range of exciting topics, that will encourage their natural curiosity and develop their knowledge. 

Pupils will be reading class novels, starting with The Thieves of Ostasia in the first half term. Using these stories, new reading and writing skills will be taught. Children will get to explore a range of texts through independent reading activities and the use of accelerated reader. Writing skills such as speech, conjunctions and fronted adverbials will be applied to a number of different genres.

Through the use of Maths - No Problem! pupils will be working with numbers up to 10,000. Topics include place value, addition and subtraction and fractions. There will be ample opportunity for children to apply their skills to reasoning problems, where they will focus on their explanations. This focus will begin immediately in order for the children to become accustomed to these question types. 

In topic, 4CT will be covering topics such as Misty Mountain, Traders and Raiders and Road Trip USA. The first half term will begin with I am Warrior, where the class will focus on the Romans. Children will learn vocabulary such as ‘chronology’, BC and AD to help them explain when historical events happened.

As well as this, we will enjoy other subjects such as science, P.E., music and art

What their teacher says:

Our class is full of hard workers and enthusiastic learners. Every day we all strive to be the best that we can be. Watching children grow into confident and independent young people is what makes this job so rewarding.

What the children say:

I am looking forward to seeing all my friends in different classes. My favourite subject is maths. I am happy to be back at school. My favourite subject is English. I am really looking forward to our I am Warrior topic because history is really interesting. Year 4 is fun!
