The Year 4 curriculum at a glance:
English: In English we are having fun reading and exploring our class text 'A pack of Pompeii' linked to our curriculum topic Rocking Romans. This has given us an insight into the Pompeii disaster and the devastation caused by it. We will be writing diary entries and newspaper articles from the viewpoint of those who may have witnessed the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
Maths: In Mathematics we will be exploring multiplication and division in a variety of different contexts. This will be done via practical activities using real life resources and problem solving activities to develop reasoning and fluency.
Times tables: Year 4 is an important time for times tables and the children need to know all their tables to 12x. They need to develop speed and accuracy as they will be completing an MTC check towards the end of the year. This consists of answering 25 questions with 6 seconds given per question. We know this is super quick so the children should be making use of 'sound check' on TT Rock stars and 'Daily Ten' to help them develop both speed and accuracy.
