In Year 4, we have a very exciting term ahead of us!
In English, we will be focussing on Fairy Tales with a twist, stories from historical settings, poetry and non-fiction explanation writing. We hope not only to enhance our English skills but also our drama skills through lots of practical lessons. Our target this half term is to punctuate direct speech correctly, which means that much of our learning will relate back to speech and conversations. Our target for the second half of the Autumn is to use commas after fronted adverbials.
In maths, we will be focussing mainly on place value this half term. Children will have lots of practical lessons to help them with their understanding of number. We will continue to practise our times tables through turbo tables.
Our first topic this term is Anglo-Saxons. We will be basing subjects such as history and art and around this. Our second topic this term is Settlements.
Science will begin with focusing on states of matter and, after half term, we will be exploring animals, which includes humans.
We are very much looking forward to a fun filled term in Year 4!
Miss Harvey, Miss Homewood and all of the Year 4 team
