  • States of matter
  • Electricity
  • Sound
  • Living things and their habitats
  • Animals including humans

History and Geography:

  • Ancient Egypt
  • Romans
  • Malawi
  • History of Ightham
  • European Case Study

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 2023)
