This term, Year 4 will be looking at a variety of themes including the Ancient Greeks.
In maths, we will ensure that our knowledge of place value and arithmetic skills are secure, as well as practise a variety of approaches to add, subtract, multiply and divide. Times table facts up to 12 x 12 will continue to be a major focus this term, which will assist the children in their class work this year and beyond. If you would like to find the time table songs from class, follow this link to the BBC “supermovers” website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-maths-collection/z7frpg8
In English, we will begin by looking at non-chronological reports as well as myths and legends.
We will be learning about electricity in science, including how to make our own circuits. This will also be part of our DT unit where we will be designing and making our own torches!
RE focuses on Hinduism this term.
Our focus for P.E this term is a mixture of dance and gymnastic skills, as well as game skills with Mr North. This term, our P.E slots are Monday afternoon (indoor) and Thursday afternoon (outdoor dependent on the weather).
If you are unable to remove earrings yourself, please do not wear them to school on P.E days. Additionally, for those who opt for it, swimming sessions will be first thing Monday morning.
What should you bring to school?
Depending on the weather, suitable P.E. clothes include:
- plain white polo or t-shirt, black shorts, plimsolls/trainers for indoors.
- additional hat, gloves, extra socks and dark coloured jumper and joggers (unbranded) for outdoors.
Homework will be given out each half term and completed activities/tasks can be bought in as soon as they are done. Tasks will link to our current topic and hopefully be an enjoyable addition to your learning!
Ongoing tasks include practising times tables and spellings, AND most importantly, reading each evening for at least 10 minutes. Each time you read, record it in your reading record books.
