Year 4 | Bolsover Church of England Junior School

 Welcome to the Year 4 page. Below you will find out lots of information about all the fun and interesting things we will be learning about during the Autumn Term. 



This term, we will be reading The Girl Who Stole an Elephant written by Nizrana Farook. We will explore this popular book and use it to support our English work and encourage the children’s love of reading. We will of course continue to work on our spellings and basic writing skills.The Girl Who Stole an Elephant


We will focus on all aspects of number system and place value. We will build on knowledge of year 3 and begin to develop year 4 knowledge up to and including 4-digit numbers. We also expect the children to continue practicing their times tables and they will have homework each week based on what we have been studying within their daily lessons. It would be beneficial for your child to be accessing TTRockstars at home to help with their timestable recall - please speak to your class teacher if you need a new login. 


In science, we will be studying Living things and their Habitats. We will be looking at the characteristics of living things and classification, exploring vertebrates and invertebrates as well as looking at animals in their environment and changes that affect these.

After Half Term, we will be Exploring different States of Matter. This should be an interesting topic allowing for lots of investigations. 

Maths and English homework will be given out to children on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. Spellings will also be set weekly so that they can practice at home ready for them to be tested each Friday. 
Alongside their weekly English and Maths homework, children are encouraged to read at home as often as possible. If children are able to read to an adult 5 times over the week they will be able to win their Rainbow Reader certificate. 

Rewards will be given out to those children that return their homework on time.
