Year 4 News

Week beginning January 18th 2016

Who We Are


People’s relationships with each other can have an impact on well being

The children will learn through a variety of learning engagements based on the following inquiry questions:

How do we develop relationships with people?

How do different relationships affect us in different ways?

How do relationships affect our well-being?

This unit of inquiry closely follows the Friends for Life programme. Children will explore how they can build positive relationships with others and how they could deal effectively with conflict in relationships. Mrs Navin will host a meeting for parents who would like further information about the programme on 26th January 2016 at 4.30pm. Sign up here:


In maths we have moved onto multiplication and division. We are looking at strategies for the children to build a toolkit of approaches for solving mathematical problems.


The children will begin to read and write procedures as part of our new unit of inquiry.
