Year 4 – Turtles

Latest Updates

This Weeks Learning

In English, we will be continuing with our text map ‘Teacher Pleaser,’ thinking about the features of an explanation text. We will be focussing on the difference between fiction and non- fiction writing.

In Maths, we will be consolidating our learning of all four operations. We will be thinking about the different strategies in place for solving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems. The children will discuss the most efficient method they are confident with, to support them in solving more complex problems.

Main topic info

This half term, we are launching our new topic Scrumdiddlyumptious!  During this topic, we will be focussing on our Science objectives and thinking about the food we put into us and how it travels through our digestive system. We will also be looking at the care of our teeth and the different purposes each set has. To launch our topic, we will be making fruit dishes and taking part in some food tasting. Throughout the half term, the children will learn how to have a healthy diet and the best way to look after their bodies. The children will write healthy recipes and create a class recipe book for others to use. As part of our P.E. the children will produce their own aerobic workout video.

In Year 4, children are still expected to read every school day and practise their spellings and times tables daily. The expectation is that children will know all of their times tables by the end of Year 4. We appreciate your support with this.

We are excited to begin swimming again every Friday and our indoor PE sessions will be on Tuesdays. It’s useful for children to have their PE kits in school every day and take them home at the end of each half term.

If you have any concerns, please do speak to your child’s class teacher or any of our team. We look forward to our year together.
