Y4 Curriculum

We make sure that our Year 4 curriculum is flexible enough to follow the interests of the children in our class.

We enjoy learning about number, measurement, geometry and statistics and use our skills in other curriculum areas as often as possible.

Throughout the year we have the opportunity to try lots of different games, dance and gymnastics activities in PE and enter football, cross country, rounders and orienteering  competitions.

In music we can learn to play an instrument and we enjoy listening to different types of music and making our own.

We also have French with Mrs. Brotherton as well as visiting Rawmarsh CLC to develop our computing skills further.

Autumn Term

On Mondays, Y4 go swimming for 12 weeks. We start on Monday 12th September and our final session is on Monday 5th December.

We will begin our time in Year 4 by finding out more about Rio and the plants and animals found in Brazil.  We will listen to some Brazillian samba music and compose some of our own.



Roman soldiers will be marching into class in 2016 and helping us find out more about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain.  We will be reading, Gladiators Never Blink by Nick Warburton.Roman soldier

Towards Christmas we see a live Pantomime performance at the Rotherham Civic Theatre….OH YES WE DO! We also hope to write our own script and perform for an invited audience.

Spring Term

Out topics will include rivers and the water cycle.  We will read the novel, The Ice Palace by Robert Swindells. 

Our visit will be to Rawmarsh CLC to create our own animations.


Summer Term

Our topic includes a residential visit to Castleton.  There are lots of exciting things for us to see and do while we are there and once we return to school, as we find out about a contrasting locality and compare it with where we live.  Why not have a look at our Castleton page and see all the fun things we did last year.
