Year 4 – Turtles

Latest Updates

This Weeks Learning

In English we will be continuing our narrative writing based on the dream giver. We will be recreating our own dreams and writing them as a narrative. We will focus on Alan Peat sentence types such as fronted adverbials and emotion word comma sentences.

In Maths we will consolidate our learning from the term and focus on efficient strategies to use to solve complex word problems for addition and subtraction.

—————————————————————–

This half term we are going to be launching ‘Tale As Old As Time’ with a focus on the Disney film Beauty and the Beats. We will be fine tuning our Artistic side and creating sculptures of the main characters from the film using Modroc. The rose is a key feature from the film and we will be sketching this and adding shading to show light and shadow. Throughout the topic we will create our own spells like the beast was put under and write instructions on how to make them. We will be creating a year group display of all the work sharing our interpretation of the story.

 

During English sessions we will be creating our own narrative based upon the story of Beauty and the Beast. The children will be organising their writing into paragraphs and use a wider range of conjunctions to extend ideas.

 

During Maths sessions we will be looking at the place value of numbers into 1000s and recognising the place value of each number in a 4 digit number

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.
