Class 4

Welcome to Class 4! 

Miss Daws



Hello and welcome to Class 4!

I hope you all have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to the Autumn Term. I certainly am!

There is much exciting learning to do and I cannot wait to get started.

Please see below for details about what the children will be studying throughout the term.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to message me on Class Dojo.


Our Class Saint


Year 4's class saint is St Thomas More. We will be celebrating his feast day on the 22nd June 2023. A date to put in the diary!


This term, we are looking at: Place Value. We will be learning to partition and count with 4-digit numbers.  This will involve representing numbers with 4-digits and finding 10, 100 or 1000 more than a given digit.

We will be concentrating on boosting our times tables knowledge this year and hosting lots of competitions via TTRockstars. You should have a login at the back of your diary! May the times tables battle commence….



We will begin the Autumn Term by exploring Legends and analysing their features, with the aim to write our own Legend narrative! To help create this, our focus text will be Freya and the Goblins. We will use drama skills, inference skills and language techniques to develop our writing style and to produce a fantastic legend. 


We will also boost our reading skills by completing weekly Guided Reading sessions which focus on VIPERS skills and reading a range of text types. 


Year 4 will be beginning their RE learning with a Creation Unit. During this unit, the children will be building on their knowledge of Creation from previous years. The children will be examining the two stories of Creation in the Book of Genesis. They will also be exploring the meaning of being made in the image and likeness of God and our responsibility to use our God given talents. We will be exploring the stories of Abraham and considering how they teach us to follow God.


This term we will completing our Biology unit called Animals including Humans. This involves learning about the digestive system, exploring the functions of our teeth and discussing the diets of animals.

This term allows us to get dug in with some fantastic experiments, which may be gruesome!



In this unit, the children will be studying famous artists, Claude Monet. Among other skills and studies, children will be making marks and lines to represent their understanding of art form and exploring colour. The children will also be experimenting with mark making to build up texture and effect. 



In design and Technology in Year 4 we will be focusing on textiles. We will be creating book covers using fasteners to develop our skills following on from the tote bag project last year. We will be using applique, running stitch, sewing buttons and elastic to create a funky individual book cover for our current reading books.


In Geography, Year 4 will be learning about Mountains, including how to identify them and identifying them on maps. This will help to improve their locational knowledge and they will develop their understanding of physical and human processes. 



This term we will be going right back to the Anglo Saxon period. We will consider the significance of the Anglo Saxon's settlement and the impact the struggle for the Kingdom had on people at this time. 



We will begin our computing lessons by focusing on Online Safety and reminding ourselves of the key skills necessary to use information in a reliable and safe way.
