Learning in Year 4
A more detailed look our expectations for each year group can be found by exploring the subject pages under the curriculum tab.
To support our understanding of our topics we have planned exciting visits which will enrich our learning and give our children the opportunity to develop their social skills.
Our proposed learning beyond the classroom events for this year are:
- Forest Schools
- Bewerley Park Outdoor Learning Centre
- A visit to a Mosque and the IMax
- Ripon Workhouse Museum
- Jorvik and The Dig
Homework expectations in year 4
10 minutes x 5 Where possible with an adult
Spelling list sent home weekly
Daily practice of number skills, KIRF (key instant recall facts) and times tables (Timestables Rockstars)
In Year 4 children are encouraged to read every night and record this in their reading diaries.
All children have access to a wide variety of books. Children have the opportunity to choose a book of their choice and also a book levelled at their ability. Parents can support their children's learning through reading with them every day, taking children to the local library to read about our topics, and by practicing maths with them.
Please get in contact if you have any questions.
