Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to Year 4. We have lots of exciting topics to study – Invasion, Misty Mountain, Winding River and Ancient Civilisations and we cannot wait to get started! Our curriculum newsletters will give you more information about each of the topics as we study them so keep your eyes peeled!
One of the other focuses this year will be on learning all of those times tables so make sure that your TTrockstars account is working well and that you are learning the times tables each week and then practising them to make them speedy as this will definitely help you to be successful in those times tables tests each week!
Other online learning platforms that are available are Bug Club for Reading and Mathletics for maths practise as well as Seesaw where you can find your homework. If you are having any issues with any of these, please email Year4@harrowlodgeprimary.com we will try our best to help you.
We look forward to working with you all this year!

They conduct an enquiry to prove a hypothesis, gathering data from maps and surveys before drawing conclusions.
