Our Learning

Year 4

Mr Higgins and Ms Mills would like to welcome everyone to Year 4. 

The timetable at the bottom of the page shows our weekly curriculum.

                         This half-term we shall be completing our topic

'Ole Pendle, ole Pendle' - The history and story of the Pendle Witch Trials



Each evening for home learning children are expected to;

•Learn Spellings

•Practise times tables

•Read for 5 minutes and bring your book bag to school.

You can find out what you will be learning this year by clicking on the links in the blue box.

PE will be on Monday and Wednesday. 


The topic for English this half term will be around the story 'The Witches'  by Roald Dahl.


This allows children to develop their vocabulary, increase their fluency and understanding.  It is important to read for pleasure, whether that is online, a comic, magazine or a book children enjoy to read. 


Children should spend at least 10 minutes a day learning their timetables and should know their tables up to 12 times.

Timetables provide a foundation for a range of learning in maths including written multiplication and division, fractions, percentages and time. 

Try online learning to encourage your children to learn their timetables:

Times tables:

History - A local history study

In this theme children learn about an aspect of history or a site dating from a period beyond 1066 that is significant in the locality. This will be on the Pendle Witch Trials. This will cover the factual events for the people involved we will also be looking at the wider attitudes prevalent within society at large during the 17th century.

Science  - States of Matter 

Children will compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases . They will observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C)   

Later they will identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature.


Many Thanks

If you have any further questions, pleasure don't hesitate to contact myself of the office so that we can discuss in greater detail.
