In Year 4 at St Peter's, the skills of independent thinking, learning and decision making are nurtured and encouraged. The children will begin to understand themselves as a learner. This will enable them to take more responsibility for their own learning, for example, making sure that homework is completed on time and that they are regularly reading at home. The children are encouraged to apply the knowledge that they have acquired so far in school, in meaningful ways to solve a variety of problems across the curriculum.
Year 4 is also a time where the children are encouraged to ask and answer questions about the topics and skills that they are learning about to further enhance their understanding.
In Maths, the children develop their knowledge of times tables, in preparation for the multiplication tables check during the Summer term. This allows them to apply these skills to problem solving activities.
They develop more stamina for writing, producing more lengthy and detailed pieces of work and begin to read longer and more challenging texts, enabling them to explore a deeper level of thinking in comprehension. Also, Year 4 is the time where children can obtain a pen licence and begin to write using a handwriting pen, encouraging neat, structured writing.
