Cradle Hill Community Primary School

Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

In Year 4, we continue to build upon the excellent learning started in Year 3 preparing your child for life in Upper Key Stage 2.  We enhance the learning experience through a range of learning journeys:

Term 1 - Romans (including a trip to Fishbourne Roman Villa)

Term 2 - Bright Sparks (Electricity)

Term 3 - Invasion (Anglo-Saxons and Vikings)

Term 4 - Sounds of the World 

Term 5 - Rainforests (including a hands on trip to Friston Forest)

Term 6 - Crunch (Healthy Eating and Digestion)



We hope that you will support your child at home by: reading with them daily for at least 10 minutes, spending time supporting their home learning including learning the spellings listed below and practising their fluency with multiplication tables - you can find a link to Times Table Rockstars below.
