Welcome to the Year 4 homepage.
Topic: Our topic for the first half of the Autumn term is called ‘ Let’s Have A Blast’ (please see our curriculum overview for details). Included in our topic the whole class will be learning a brass instrument ready to perform a ‘mini concert’ later in the term.
Maths: In Maths No Problem we will be focusing on: numbers to 10,000, mental and written methods of addition & subtraction and consolidating our quick recall of 2,3,4,5,8,10 times tables facts.
Writing: We will use Dr Xargle’s Book of Tiggers to support our writing of non fiction reports and Cinderella to help us create descriptive story settings. To start the term, our writing focus will be around non fiction report writing. We will then move onto looking at how writers create descriptive settings – using Cinderella as our text.
Class Novel: Our first class novel will be Krindlekrax by Philip Ridley. A story about an unlikely hero.
Physical Education: PE will be on Wednesday. Please make sure that your child always has their PE kit at school
Home Learning: Five spellings and ten number facts will be set on our Year 4 page every Friday. Please help your child learn these for testing the following Friday.
