Summer Term 1  2021
Welcome to Year 4!

Welcome to the summer term Year 4!  I hope that you have all had a lovely Easter holidays.

Our Cornerstones project for this half term is called ‘Blue Abyss’. During this topic, we will be developing a scientific understanding of our seas and oceans by learning about ocean layers, habitats, food chains, adaptations and more!

Reading continues to be an important part of the day. Our class novel is Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. Please ensure that you read at home daily and that this is recorded in your reading record. Your reading book and reading record should be brought into school every day please.

As writers, we will be learning about how to create effective openings and endings and applying this as we write a ‘Tale of Fear’. Following on from this, we will be exploring the features of explanation texts in our non-fiction unit.

As mathematicians, we will revisit some of our work on fractions and continue to learn about decimals. We will also be learning about money and how to multiply and divide by 10 and 100, revisiting mental and formal calculation for addition and subtraction also.

All PE will continue to be taught outside. Please make sure that you have a full outdoor PE kit and a water bottle in school every day.

Please remember to check the Home Learning section every Friday to practise your spellings and maths facts for your tests the following week.

Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances interactions with staff will be limited. If you have any questions, queries or photos that you would like to share, please do not hesitate to email me at:
