Hi, I’m Malena Andrews and welcome to Year 4.
The school follows the National Curriculum for pupils aged five to eleven, which is divided into different subject areas of which Literacy, Mathematics and Science are the major parts (Core Subjects). The teaching of many of the other subject areas is incorporated into Topic work, which enables children to practise literacy and numeracy skills and also brings in knowledge from other areas such as history, geography and RE.
All children also participate in practical activities such as PE, Science and Design Technology. Our curriculum is designed to engage all children in enjoying their learning and to raise standards of attainment and achievement.
In English we study a variety of texts and genres including stories from other cultures, non-fiction texts and poetry. We use core texts such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Bill’s New Frock, Meerkat Mail and The Iron Man.
In Maths we will be learning key arithmetic skills such as using different mental and written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In addition to arithmetic skills your child will explore shape, time, fractions, data handling and will apply their maths skills to investigations and problem solving.
