Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Autumn Term

Welcome back! During this term, Year 4 will be studying Italy and the Roman Empire. We will learn about the geography of modern day Italy and the continent of Europe, looking at human and physical features. We will compare Italy to the UK and study Italian regions in detail. Following this, our learning will move onto a historical focus. We will discover how the Roman Empire grew and study some famous people from this era. We will find out about the Roman army and understand the legacy left by these people.

 

Spring Term

During this term, Year 4 will be studying The Rainforest and Maya civilisation. We will learn about the geography of modern day Brazil and the Amazon Basin, looking at human and physical features. We will compare Brazil to the UK. We will find out why the Amazon rainforest is so important. Following this, our learning will move onto a historical focus. We will discover who the Maya were and how the Maya lived. 

Summer Term

 

This week, we started exploring our new topic: Invaders and Settlers otherwise known as the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.

 

For our stunning start, we found out about the mystery of the empty grave that was found in the grounds of Sutton Hoo, Suffolk. We started to think about who this grave could belong to? After exploring a little more, we came to the conclusion that it was the grave of a king, who was also a warrior. We knew he had to be from East Anglia and had to be Christian at some point. We therefore decided that the grave belonged to King Raedwald.

  

Year 4 worked extremely hard on this day and used their history skills to investigate the mystery- well done!

Year 4 Multiplication Check

 

The DfE introduced a multiplication check test to check Year 4 children's fluency in their multiplication times tables. It will take place in school in June as part of our Year 4 curriculum.  The children will complete an on screen test to check their tables. They will have 6 seconds to answer each question. There will be 25 questions altogether.

 

To practise tables:

There are multiplication / tables games on our class page.

Children can use TT Rockstars.
