In Year 4, we have another very busy and exciting term ahead of us!
In English, we will be focussing on recounts (including writing a recount of our trip to the Royal Gunpowder Mills), persuasion and then poetry. We are hoping to not only enhance our English skills but also our drama skills too through lots of practical lessons. Our target this half term is to add more detail to our noun phrases. Our target for the second half of the Spring Term is to edit our work and understand when to use pronouns.
In maths this half term, we will be focussing mainly on decimals. After half term, we will be looking at fractions and money. It would brilliant if you could involve your child in the shopping to support their learning. We will continue to practise our times tables through turbo tables.
‘The Vikings’ is our topic for the first half term. We will visit the Gunpowder Mills and will be basing our history, art and some English units around this. Our second topic has a geography focus and is entitled ’Countries around the World'. This will be linked to our English unit of persuasion. Science will begin with electricity and after half term, we will be exploring living things and their habitats.
We are very much looking forward to another fun filled term in Year 4!
Miss Harvey, Miss Homewood and all of the Year 4 team
