Year 4

In Year 4, our topic is ‘Watery Worlds’. We will be reading a range of fictional texts that have water at its core. These include our Talk for Writing model text, The Canal, as well as Journey to the River Sea, an adventure set in the wilderness of Brazil, by Eva Ibbotson. We look forward to exploring these texts in both reading and writing and learning more about how settings become almost like another character of the story. 

Over this half term, in Mathematics, we will be revisiting place value and understand that this is the basis of all understanding of number. We will also look at what a negative number is as well as begin to understand Roman Numerals. 

In Science the children will be learning about states of matter and recognising when a material is a solid, liquid or a gas. We will also learn how a material can change state through heating or freezing and conducting experiments to help us understand his more.

In Geography, We will begin the unit by learning about how a river is formed and some of the vocabulary used to describe this accurately. We will use maps and atlases to locate the major rivers of the UK and visit the River Thames to see how we live and work with the river. We will also learn more the water cycle and the processes that water goes through.

If you have any further questions about the content of the Year 4 curriculum please contact the Year 4 Team Leader, Miss Lacy, who will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
