About Year 4
Within year 4 the children have been engaging through the IPC curriculum in a creative and inspiring progression. They have taken part in WOW! Days! at the beginning of every term to introduce a new topic. They have moved around each of the year 4 classrooms, gaining the chance to work with each of the teachers within the year group, which includes fun activities from drama, art, ICT and writing. Year 4 have also enjoyed trips to various places to take the learning out of the class and help bring the learning to life. Children have learnt how to vary their recording of information using pictures, diagrams, lists, and more, ensuring their work is presented to a high standard, so it is readable as well as eye catching to the reader to gain the most from their abilities.
Helping your child
Attendance and punctuality are important for children’s learning to ensure they make progress and receive a well-rounded, full education that prepares them for the future.
Parental support is an essential part of the pupils’ development. Homework goes out every Friday and is due back the following Friday. It is important for their learning that children complete these activities regularly and use any spare time to extend their learning.
Discussion is a great way to clarify understanding and demonstrate knowledge so we encourage you to speak with your children about what they are doing in school and ask questions.
Year 4 Curriculum Maps
The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is one of the fastest-growing curriculums in the world today. It is a comprehensive curriculum with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for personal learning and for international mindedness.
The IPC has been designed to ensure rigorous learning but also to help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children. Learning with the IPC takes a global approach; helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking at the learning from the perspective of other people in other countries.
Students can also extend their learning using websites like these below:
