Year 4. 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Year 4 Autumn Term
We've made a wonderful start to the new academic year and our Year 4 students have returned to school, enthusiastic, ready to learn and being excellent role models for our school.
During the term ahead, our topics will be Ancient Greece and Europe. We will be learning about the culture, food, civilisation and myths and legends of this ancient culture. We will explore Europe in modern day and learn more about the countries, their location to us and their cultures.
In English, we will be looking at a range of texts including The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and Gorilla by Anthony Browne. We will also be using visual texts to stimulate our writing including animation films. We will enhance already taught skills and introduce new writing skills to add to our ‘writer’s toolkits’.
Our Maths learning begins this term with a Place Value focus before moving on to look at the use of the four operations (additon, subtraction, multiplication and division). 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 The Bible making links with Abraham, Moses and David. In the second half of the term we look at our Trust in God. Both topics will offer children opportunities to reflect on the teaching of our Church and how we are each called to respond to the challenges in our society today.
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.
There will be the opportunity to meet formally during the Parent/Teacher evening in October, but in the meantime you are welcome to chat to after school, or to make an appointment.
As always, thank you for your continued support.
