Year 4

Welcome to Year 4. Here you can find information about the Curriculum being taught to your child whilst in Year 4 at Riverside Primary School. Our aim is to ensure that each child develops a lifelong love for learning where everyone is encouraged to develop, grow and reach their potential whatever his or her ability. The Year 4 Curriculum has been developed to ensure that it is progressive, follows a sequence of lessons which builds on prior knowledge and is committed to knowing more and remembering more.

The Curriculum

Your children will be exploring the Tudors, Forces and Fairgrounds and Inspiring India throughout the year.  Children will be developing their knowledge of different subjects utilising key skills needed, for example as a Historian, children will be exploring bias from different historical sources.

Year 4 children have an exciting opportunity of experiencing our fantastic Character Award which is designed to complement the Character Education your child receives.  They will take part in a range of activities designed to grow your child’s Character Muscles (Character traits) to help them develop these important life-skills such as: Teamwork, Imagination, Creativity and Honesty.  Our Character Education is underpinned by our 6Rs which are vital for children to thrive.
