Year 4. 2018 - 2019
Year 4 Spring Term
Spring has nearly sprung and year 4 have come back to school after Christmas with their usual enthusaism for learning. Welcome back to everybody and read on to find out what new learning will be taking place this term.
This term will see us going back in time and learning all about the Romans. From the invasion to the gladiators, food, pottery making and an exciting trip to look forward to. There is so much to find out!
Spring term's text will be Zeraffa Giraffa, the story of an enchanting giraffe who goes on a very long journey. This fantastic text will allow children to develop their skills of persuasive writing and become giraffe experts in the process.
Our Maths learning this term will focus on multiplication, using the formal written method and looking at efficient ways to multiply using number facts we already know. Our focus will again be teaching for mastery using concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to learning to secure fluency and reasoning skills.
In RE this term we will be exploring Jesus the Teacher. We will look at how from an early age, Jesus began teaching and his journey along the way. We will reflect on what this means for us.
At home there are many different ways in which you can support your child with their learning this year. Each week, the homework books will have details of reinforcement activities that can be completed in the CGP revision books. There are also the Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars apps that the children are warmly invited to use as regularly as possible. Year 4 children will also be bringing home details of their personalised spelling lists that will need to be practised using the different spelling strategies that we teach in school. Children should also continue to read every night and to have their reading logged in their reading record each time.
As always, should you ever want to pop in to discuss anything else please do make an appointment to come in and talk to me.
Thank you for your continued support.
