Welcome to the Spring Term after a fun-filled Christmas! Although this year, life has been a little different than usual, we hope that you had a lovely, restful holiday and managed to have quality time with family and that you are ready for the new term ahead. This term, the Year 4 topic is “What a Wonderful World”.
It is hard to believe that over this coming term, the days will start to get lighter as we head towards the summer term.
We have lots of exciting learning this term such as: Book Week; exploring our local area and creating maps of it, Science day and the Delight Shakespeare workshop.
As before, it is vital that all children are supported to complete their reading and spellings daily at home, in addition to their weekly Maths homework. Most children know their login and password (same password for all) for their online resources such as TTRockstars, Bug Club, ActiveLearn (Maths and Reading activities) and Oxford Owls. These websites can be used to practise and consolidate children’s skills across the curriculum but especially with using and applying their Maths knowledge. If the children need reminding of their password, please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher using the class emails.
In Maths, we will continue to develop and secure our knowledge on Fractions, Bar charts, reading, writing and converting time between 12 hour and 24 hour times on a digital clock and decimals. In Literacy we will be looking at the features of Adventure Stories/narratives and diary entries.
In Science, we will be looking at Animals, including humans- learning all about the human body and how to live a healthy lifestyle. We will also be learning/recognising about living things, identifying and naming a variety of living things in our local and wider environment; recognising that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.
Lastly, look out for our artwork based on the work of Cezanne!
As you can see, it’s a busy, interesting term with lots of fun.
The Year 4 staff hope that you have a great New Year and we look forward to working with you this term.
Thank you for all your support this term.
