Welcome to Year 4

Overview

In Year 4 there are three classes.  The pupils’ timetable is structured as follows:  Spellings, following the RWI scheme; Maths, following the NCETM planning; and English, which is based on fiction and non-fiction texts linked to our topic themes. Reading Master lessons are based around a variety of genres where we encourage children to explore vocabulary, use inference, make predictions, explain, develop retrieval skills and summarise events. The wider curriculum subjects are taught either discretely or through a whole school creative and connective approach.

 

To see more of the learning and activities we do in Year 4, see our Year 4 blog below.
