Welcome to Year 4/ Year 5
Please visit Our Curriculum section of our website, where you will find our Class Overviews which detail what we will be learning this term.
In our first term in year 4/5, our topic is Where the Land Meets the Sea. We use atlases and maps to identify mountainous regions, major rivers and coasts in Great Britain and create our own maps. We examine the physical processes that shape the coast and ways it can be protected. We visit Seaham Beach to do our fieldwork.
In English, we write personal recounts and biographies as well as texts inspired by our class novel Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick. Our featured author this half term is Roald Dahl.
In maths, we read, write, order and compare larger numbers; round numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10000 and 100000; interpret negative numbers in context, count forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers including through zero; add and subtract whole numbers using formal written methods; and solve a variety of problems. In every term, we work hard to learn all our multiplication tables and the related division facts.
