Year 4


Our topic this half term is Land, Sea and Sky. This is a geography and science based topic and so we will be looking at maps and learning how to interpret geographical features before learning about the water cycle and water animals and their habitats. Our trip to the Horniman Museum will be a lovely opportunity for the children to share their knowledge so far and develop their learning further.


In English, we are focusing on a book called ‘The Polar Bear Explorers' club’. We will be using the book as inspiration for our own writing and begin to write for different purposes and audiences. These will include poetry, newspaper reports, diary entries and descriptive writing.


In Maths, we will be looking at area and multiplication. We will also be developing our understanding of multiples and inverse functions. As our times table assessment occurs at the end of this year, we will be regularly practicing our times tables to develop our fluency.



  • Homework will go home on Friday and will need to be completed by Wednesday.
  • Times tables and spellings to go home Friday ready for a test on Monday.
