Welcome to Year 4! In Year 4, children continue on their journey through KS2, learning and growing each and every day. As a class, we promote resilience, positive thinking and high aspirations, ensuring every child works hard to ensure they progress and achieve their full potential.


Here, you can find an overview of the Year 4 Curriculum. You can use this information to discuss with your child what they have learned and continue to support their learning at home.


What’s happening this half-term?


In maths, we will begin by looking at shapes. This involves looking at the angles within shapes and naming them, finding lines of symmetry in shapes and understanding the different triangles, polygons and quadrilaterals. After that, we will be looking at statistics focusing on line graphs and different charts. To end the half term, we will look at position and direction. This will be exploring coordinates and plotting shapes on grids.


In Year 4, the children sit a national multiplication test in June. To support your children, you can gain access to practice tests here.


  • Fiction - Journey Tale - The children will read the model text called The Incredible Journey to a Magical Kingdom and then write their own version of story. They will be looking to start their sentences with words ending with ed and ly, writing a sentence of three to show action and a sentence of three to show description, using speech marks correctly and using apostrophes for possession.

  • Non Chronological Report - The children will be writing a report about a Moon Dragon.


Geography: Our Changing Climate

We are looking at climate zones around the world and how humans have affected the world's climate. The children will be learning about the Earth's lines of latitude, using maps and atlases to compare past and present images of the world.

Science: Living Things and their Habitats 

We will be categorising different animals and looking at the characteristics of different creatures. The children will go on a mini-beast hunt and see what creatures we have living in and around Alma Park.

Data logging

We will be looking at how we can collect, store and display data. The children will be collecting data using data loggers and producing their own graphs and spreadsheets.


RE: What do different people believe about God?

We will be learning about the similarities and differences between the major religions in how they view and celebrate god.

Knowledge Organiser


Art: Still Life Painting

We will be learning how to use tone to create the illusion of 3D images. The children will experiment with adding black and white to other colours to add depth and texture to their art. They will produce a final piece where they draw a still life of items that they choose.

Knowledge Organiser


We will be learning about gender, diversity and changes to the body.


Learning to ask questions and give answers. Sentence building, further adjectives and vocabulary for a game. Masculine nouns and feminine nouns.



We will be learning how to play keyboards.


This half term Year 4 will have outdoor games on a Tuesday and gymnastics on a Wednesday. Remember to come into school wearing your PE kit on those days.

Kit: Black shorts, joggers or tight-fitting black leggings, a plain white t-shirt and a black jumper.


Swimming - Thursday

Your child needs to bring in a separate bag-a towel, swimsuit or trunks and a swimming hat if your child has long hair. Please do not bring goggles or wear ear-rings on this day.


In class we are currently reading How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell.


Please read with your child every day and comment in their reading record when you do. Reading books should be in school everyday for independent reading and can be changed everyday.


Spellings will be sent out every week on a Friday to learn for a spelling test the following Friday.
