Welcome to Year Four’s Homepage! Year Four is an exciting year in which the children will continue to develop their independence in learning, both at home and school. We will focus on a variety of topics across the year such as the Romans, the Ancient Egyptians and Shakespeare as well as celebrating Black History Month and the Global Goals.
Please remember to sign your child’s reading record at least 3 times a week to show that they are reading at home. Thank you.

This half term, Year 4’s topic is The Romans.
We will be immersing ourselves in accounts of the dramatic eruption of Vesuvius and writing newspaper reports from the scene. We will then be writing our own fictional stories with Ancient Roman settings, inspired by Roman Myths. In History, we will be using a range of sources and artefacts to build a broader picture of the Roman Empire, its impact on Britain and its continued legacy and influence today.
In Maths, we will revise our understanding of place value, building on the 3-digit numbers we worked on in Year 3 to learn about 4-digit numbers. We will represent 4-digit numbers in different ways, partition them, order and compare them. We will also practise key skills such as rounding to the nearest 10 and 100 and learn Roman numerals. We will also develop our understanding of addition and subtraction, using both mental and written methods.
In Science, our focus will be ‘Electricity’ and we will be busy pursuing enquiry questions to help us gain a thorough understanding of circuits, conductors and insulators.
In RE, we will be learning about the miracles Jesus performed when he was alive and what they mean for Christians today.
Our Art this half term will be inspired by the work of Keith Haring.
