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.

We have begun immersing ourselves in our Shakespeare focus by writing persuasively as Ariel, pleading for our freedom. We will hone our persuasive writing skills by creating adverts enticing Antonio, Alonso and Sebastian to an imaginary banquet, before moving to writing Odes, letters from Prospero and much more throughout the term!
In Maths, we will be calculating and comparing the area of shapes, before starting to tackle fractions. We look forward to practising key skills such as finding equivalent fractions and simplifying fractions.
In Science, our focus will be ‘Sound’ and we will be using lots of practical enquiry to identify how sounds are made and what affects aspects of sound such as pitch and volume. We look forward to drawing on our prior knowledge from Band!
In RE, we will be learning about the meaning and importance of the Holy Communion for Christians. We will also carefully consider to what extent fame and Christianity are compatible, using research into famous Christian figures to support our opinions.
In History, we will be delving into an independent research project aiming to find out about the monarchy during Shakespeare’s lifetime. We will, in small groups, take on an area of expertise to research based on our interests and curiosity. We will build up to sharing our knowledge and understanding with our peers towards the end of term.
Our Christian value this half term is Forgiveness.
Our Art this half term will focus on developing our skills of print-making, ink painting and line drawing, inspired by The Tempest.
