Science:

  • States of matter

  • Living things and their habitats

History and Geography:

  • Ancient Egypt

  • History of Ightham

Throughout the year, formative assessments are carried out and each child’s progress is assessed against age-related expectations. Your child will therefore be in one of four broad bands for Reading, Writing and Maths:

  • Below Age-Related Expectations
  • Emerging
  • Expected
  • Exceeding

The expectation is that your child would be in the “Emerging” band at the start of the school year. This is because the curriculum for that year would not yet have been taught to your child. By the end of the school year, the expectation would be that your child would be in the “Expected” band. “Expected” means that your child is working at the expected level for a child of that age.

  • Parent Consultations will take place in Terms 1 and 4
  • End of year reports will be sent in July
  • Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (June 2020)

Homework will be sent home via the Home-School Contact book. This is an important link between home and school and will include homework and letters.

If you have any questions or concerns please write a note in the home-school contact book or contact the school office via telephone or email. Thank you.
