Y4 Mount Everest Class

Year 4 

This year in English we will be reading high-quality texts including The Iron Man, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and FaRther. We will learn to make inferences from what we have read and, in our writing, we will become proficient in using paragraphs in both our fiction and non-fiction composition.

In Maths we will develop our understanding of place value, and we will become increasingly familiar with formal methods of calculation; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  In preparation for the Times Tables Check in June, we will memorise our times tables facts to 12x12, practising them daily in class and at home.

Topics this year include: 





Highlights of the year will include various Buzz days including Roman Day and Digestion Day, swimming lessons, and a two day residential trip at Bushcraft!
