Knowledge Organisers

Below are the knowledge organisers for this half term...



In English we will be learning about Reportage Stories . We will start by reading 'Flood' by Alvaro F. Villa before comparing a range or wordless picture books. Children will then create their own reportage story based on an imaginary event that threatens our local community. 

Later in the term we will then focus on Non Chronological Reports before creating an infomation booklet about a famous world river and a poster about the water cycle.

Books we will be reading this half term

Here are some recommended reads for this half term...


This half term we will be working on Decimals and Money

Decimals A

Decimals B



We will continue to strengthen our mathematical fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills regularly within lessons.

Each week children will be set homework tasks on TTRS but we also encourage children to adopt a 'little and often' approach - 3 minutes practice per day, 4 or 5 times a week is a good target!

All children have individual login details and we will challenging the children through termly battles.

Multiplication Check

In June of 2024, the children in year four will be participating in a statutory multiplication check.

The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided.

To pass the check the children in this year group have to know their 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 ,10, 11 and 12 times tables and related division facts by heart. Children will need to answer 25 questions and will be allowed 6 seconds per question so fluency is key!

We will be doing lots of work towards this in class, however practise at home will be vital. We encourage children to use a 'little and often' approach and recommend at least 3 minutes 4 times a week.

Please find below some useful links for other activities to help your child with their times tables.
