PE

It is important at this time to stay fit and healthy. Of course, we can go outside for one walk a day or play football in the garden but here are two very useful links. The first is a youtuber who is offering PE lessons at 9:00 everyday the second is a link to diversity who are offering free dance lessons until May.

Topic

History

Choose one of the following topics to research that you haven't already.

  • Aztecs
  • Native Americans
  • Aboriginal Australians

Geography

Have a little explore of the area around you on Google Maps. What key features are near you? Do you have any parks, schools, churches, shops or other features nearby? 

Create a map of the local area around you with the support of Google Maps. Remember, maps only use symbols to show key features so you need to come up with a key for your map too. 

Science

Last term we looked at living things and how scientists classify them into different groups.

Go outside and create a log of all the animals/living things that you can find. Try to classify them into different groups and find some information about each one from the internet. 

Which one is your favourite that you have found? Draw a detailed diagram of your chosen animal.

 Welcome to Year 4

The Year 4 team includes Mr Blount-Hogg (Edinburgh), Miss Riley (Dublin) and Ms Abergel (Sheffield). We are supported by Mrs Ault, Miss Clarke, Mr Hill and Ms Duggan.

 

Maths

This term, we'll be exploring place value, formal methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We'll also focus on fractions, decimals and using data.

Times Tables

The Year 4 teachers are relentless when it comes to times tables. We want to be the fastest year group in the school to respond to times table questions.  

Please help your child to learn all the times tables up to 12 x 12 by asking them questions at home (just throw in a "What's 7 x 5?" whilst you're cooking tea; or a "What's 9 x 4"? on the school run...).

Here are a few websites that the children are familiar with that they can access from home to help them learn their times tables:

Espresso (Your child should know the login details - if not, come and see us.)
