Year 4. 2018 - 2019
Year 4 Autumn Term
Year 4 have been working so hard this term, it's hard to believe we are nearly in December! So much super learning has taken place this term so far with children coming in to school every day enthusiastic and ready to learn!
We had a fantastic first term learning about life in Ancient Greece. This term we have continued our journey through Europe and begun to learn more about the countries, their location to us, human and physical features and their cultures.
We have enjoyed all things Ape whilst reading Gorilla by Anthony Browne. This text has lent itself to some fantastic drama sessions and narrative writing. We dipped out of fiction into the world of non fiction to write some fantastic Ape factfiles. 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 has taken us from place value to addition and subtraction. Using our previously taught skills we have been building on thesse by looking at the most efficient way to subtract and add. 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.
It was wonderful to meet with you all at parents evening and to discuss how well your children had settled into year 4 and the progress they have been making. 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.
