In Year Four we have lots of exciting things planned for the Spring Term. In English, we are going to be reading the book ‘The Day The Crayons Quit’ by Oliver Jeffers; we will use this as a stimulus for writing persuasive letters. Our target this term is to improve and edit our writing, as well as choosing appropriate pronouns to use within our work.
In maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division and will be recapping and building on the skills that we covered in the Autumn Term. Our target is to be able to convert between analogue and digital times. We will be encouraging the children to start practicing telling the time on an analogue clock at home in order to embed their learning.
With great pleasure we will be learning about 'chocolate' as this is our topic for the term and we will be basing subjects such as geography, history, art and design and technology around this. In addition to chocolate, our science topic for this term is states of matter and we will be learning all about solids, liquids and gases and their properties. However, during our Science Week we will be focusing our learning around the scientist, Charles Darwin.
We are looking forward to a fun-filled term!
Please feel free to come and talk to us if you have any worries or concerns. We look forward to a productive and successful term working together for the good of the children.
