Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Welcome To Our Year 4 Class Page!


This half term our work will be focused around the topic of Bonfire Night with the question of 'Why must we remember the 5th of November?' We will be learning all about the failed gunpowder plot of 1605, what lead to it and it's implications thereafter. 

In Maths we will be developing our knowledge and understanding of Addition and Subtraction as well as Measurements including Lengths and Perimeters.

TT Rockstars - We aim to complete our challenges 3 times per week in order to improve the speed and accuracy of our times tables.

Pupils are encouraged to access the TT Rockstars website from home in order to further support their progress in this area. (TT Rockstars login details can be found in the back of your child's homework book.)

Our Science topic this half term is States of Matter and we are very excited to take part in lots of practical activities, learn about solids, liquids and gasses, and put our new knowledge to the test by making scientific predictions!
