Learning In Year Four

During this year, children continue to build on the skills they have learnt in Year Three and start pushing towards the move to Year Five.

The Multiplication Test is taken in in June each year. Children have plenty of time to become familiar with the format of the on-line test and have told us that they really enjoy the quick-fire challenge.

Our Enhanced Curriculum 

We want the children to throughly enjoying each age and stage of their childhood. We enhance and extend our Curriculum through learning and being outside. FAB Fridays will see all children engaged in lessons outside that build on the skill they have learnt during the week. They apply their learning to real life, making the very most of our wonderful environment and supportive community. Similarly, we extend the children's unerstanding of the world around them through Life Skills and learning how to use Makaton to sign. Your Teaching Team will let you know what is being taught and when though regular updates. 

As the children continue to mature their experiences of life within and external to the academy continue to grow. Residentials, longitudinal studies and opportunities for demonstrating their growing independence are plentiful.
