Year 4

Welcome to Year 4! 
Our teacher is Mrs Wilson.
English
This term our English lessons will be based around the book, Leaf, by Sandra Dieckmann. It is a lovely story about a polar bear who drifts away from his home in the Arctic and finds himself alone in a strange place. We will be writing our own outsider narratives based on this story.

Maths
We will be continuing to work on place value, reading, writing and ordering numbers up to 10,000. We will also look at the system of Roman numerals. 
The work will then cover addition and subtraction, when our knowledge of place value will be very useful. 
Throughout the year, we will be learning multiplication and division facts up to 12x12 in preparation for the National Test in summer. Please make every effort to learn and practise times tables - remember you can log on to Times Tables Rock Stars at home!
