What the children are learning this year

Year 4 enjoy a year full of varied learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom through the provision of a rich curriculum. They grow in confidence as they consolidate their learning from Year 3 and set themselves a strong launch pad for work in upper KS2.

Curriculum

School Trips

Ufton Court Residential (October 2021)

Early in the year we visit Ufton Court for a one night residential. This trip launches us into our first topic (Anglo Saxons) by letting the children experience life in this period of history. Whilst there we get to explore the herb garden, take part in an Anglo Saxon feast and re-enact an Anglo Saxon – Viking battle.

Bough Beech
We will be visiting the water treatment works at Bough Beech reservoir in March. This links to our science topic (water cycle) and geography topic (rivers).

RHS Wisley
Linked to our science topic (Habitats) we go for a day trip to RHS Wisley to explore different habitats. Children get to experience areas like the Mediterranean Garden, Rose Garden and the Wild Garden.

Supporting Learning at Home

The learning the children are expected to complete at home has a clear focus on key skills that will not only enable them to make the expected academic progress but also foster those vital skills that they will need beyond their time at school. We therefore expect them to practice their times tables and read daily. We ask children to records their daily reading on the Go Read app.

Go Read  is used to monitor reading in school and at home. Children can update home reading themselves using the app or desktop log in.

Class Dojo is an online reward system and communication tool. Parents can contact teachers via the messaging tool. Please note that quiet hours are set by teachers and messages during the school day should be sent to the office.

Mathletics is an online teaching and learning resource. The children can access activities that they choose to support their learning. It is a fun environment which is used in class and can be accessed at home. Children can earn certificates as they learn and gain items for their Avatar.

If children are isolating at home, learning can be accessed via Google Classroom. Children have their own log on for this.

Online Safety

All children need to learn how to keep themselves safe online. Here are some things you can do:
CEOPS is the best place to go if you wish to report something inappropriate on the internet.
ThinkUKnow is where you can play interactive games and learn more about being safe online.
Kidsmart has lots of information about how you can keep yourself safe online.
