In English, we will begin with exploring the text ‘Charlotte’s Web’ and practicing our narrative skills through character descriptions, writing in role and story writing. We will be looking at how the story raises issues and dilemmas. At the end of the term we will be creating a balanced argument on a given topic.
This term we will be covering a variety of topics in Maths. We will be practising skills such as ordering and comparing numbers and rounding. We will also be recapping both mental and written methods for the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). Following on from last term, we will continue learning about fractions and decimals.
Please also continue to encourage your child to complete their Mymaths homework. As well as learning all of our times tables up to 12 x 12.
In Science we will be looking at the human digestive system and teeth. One of our experiments will be linked to eggs and various liquids.
This terms topic in PSHE is ‘Healthy me’. We will be learning how to make healthy choices, deciding what a balanced diet is, how to be physically active, how to keep ourselves and others safe and thinking about how to be a good friend.
Please ensure your child’s reading planner is in school each day and that your child is reading at home at least three times a week. There are also fun journal tasks to complete.
Thank you for your on-going support and feel free to speak to any of the Year 4 team when needed.
Miss Wilson, Mr Priddin, Miss Shackel and Mrs Lawson.
