Welcome To Our Year 4 Class Page!


This half term our work will be focused around the topic of Bonfire Night with the question of 'Why must we remember the 5th of November?' We will be learning all about the failed gunpowder plot of 1605, what lead to it and it's implications thereafter. 

In Maths we will be developing our knowledge and understanding of Addition and Subtraction as well as Measurements including Lengths and Perimeters.

Pupils are encouraged to access the TT Rockstars website from home in order to further support their progress in this area. (TT Rockstars login details can be found in the back of your child's homework book.)

Our Science topic this half term is 'Living things and their habitats' and we are very excited learn about all the different characteristics of living things, to learn how to categorize them and apply our scientific knowledge to lots of practical activities.
