Teaching and Learning in Year 4
Take a look at our long term plan, to see what we will be learning throughout the course of year, in year 4.
Medium Term Plans
You can view our Topics in more detail, by looking at our Medium Term plans
We use our Knowledge Organisers throughout our topic to introduce new vocabulary and 'sticky knowledge' children will learn during Topic lessons.
Year 4 timetables check - government introduction
The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided.
This year, the children in Year 4 will be doing their timetable's check in June.
We recommend that the children practise at home with songs, chants, online games including TT Rockstars and Hit the Button.
The checks are nothing to worry about but if you do have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.
PSHE - Important
In PSHE (personal, social, health and economics), we will be studying the unit ‘Health and Wellbeing’. We will be focusing on positive ways we can keep our mind and body healthy. Towards the end of this half term, we will be learning about growing and changing which will involve the physical and emotional changes in puberty and will include identifying and naming the main parts of the body including external genitalia (e.g. vulva, vagina, penis, testicles). These lessons are in line with the new statutory framework, Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)and are an important aspect in helping to keep our children safe. The lesson objectives which we will be covering can be seen below, which we advise you to look at due to the topic of part of our PSHE lessons. If you would like to discuss the lesson content further, please contact your child’s class teacher.
Hedgehogs – Tuesdays and Wednesday
Badgers - Monday and Thursday
We hope to teach many of our PE lessons outside so an outdoor kit including a pair of trainers and a tracksuit top and bottoms is useful. Please make sure all kit is clearly labelled with your child's name. For safety reasons, if your child has pierced ears, please try and remove earrings on their PE days or ensure small studs are worn which can be taped over.
