Hello and welcome to our Year 4 page. We are excited to be starting our new topic of Misty Mountains!
This half term, Year 4 will discover how mountains are formed and discover where they are located across the world. We will be looking at the story of Pompeii and look in depth at volcanoes. We will recap the water cycle’s course from peak to valley and meet the exceptional tribes of the hostile Himalayas. But beware, look out! What’s that by that tree? It’s footprints are huge! Have we found the Yeti!!
During our topic, we will also be going on our very own mountain expedition.
In maths we will continue to look at multiplication and division so we can provide a solid foundation for the rest of our Singapore Maths curriculum for the rest of the year. We will also start to look at graphs, fractions and time.
In our science topic this half term we will begin looking at electricity.
In PSHE, our focus will primarily be on the topic of Rights and Responsibilities and Looking after the Environment. This will link well with our mountains topic.
As part of Year 4 physical education, all children will be attending swimming lessons at Eccles Leisure Centre. This is to ensure that the children will be able to swim 25metres unaided and have knowledge of water rescue which they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
