Merton Park Primary School

Year 4

Literacy

In Year 4 we have selected a wonderful range of children’s books to enhance the children’s pleasure in reading and to teach literacy creatively. We use lots of strategies to support writing, including: discussion, drama, role play, reading aloud and oral story-telling. Children learn how to organise their ideas and writing and how to use an increasingly varied vocabulary to make their writing interesting.  

Maths

In Year 4 children solve increasingly complex number problems. They use all four mathematical operations (+ - x ÷) and are encouraged to talk about their methods and their solutions. By the end of Year 4 children are expected to know all of their times tables up to 12x. All year 4 children will take the Multiplication Times-table check (MTC) at the end of Y4.
