This term, our theme in year 4 is Raiders and Invaders. We continue our journey through the history of Britain as the Romans leave the country undefended. Year 4 will consider the changes during the time of the Anglo-Saxon and then Viking invasions.

In geography we will focus on map skills, becoming familiar with the names of some European countries. We will look at different settlements, thinking about the resources needed and the best locations for defence. Many of the names we give to our towns and villages relates to this period in history.

In science we have been learning how sounds are made, how we can change volume and pitch and linking these to sound waves. We will also be learning about classification of different plants and animals and will learn about invertebrates and vertebrates.

In Maths, we will continue to focus on efficient written methods for calculations as we solve reasoning problems including measures. We will develop further our understanding of fractions as fractions of shapes and fractions of amounts and linking them to decimals and to division. Especially important, this term, will be our focus on times tables with the expectation that year 4 children will know all their times tables by the end of the year.

In literacy we will be writing non-chronological reports, creating reports about our own amazing creatures. After half term, we will be writing a ‘defeating the monster’ tale based on Beowulf.
