Year 4 2018
Welcome to Year 4 - Summer 1 Term - Let's Go Wild!!!
In our Maths work we will continue to focus on problem solving and reasoning skills. This half term we will be looking at decimals, we will be continue learning how to order and round decimals and create whole numbers. We will be adding and subtracting fractions. The children will continue to learn their times tables on a regular basis. The children are beginning to get much more confident and regular practice at home will really embed this skill.
This term Year 4 will be focusing on the book Quest by ‘Aaron Becker’ creating our own narrative. We will continue to look at various aspects of SPAG during our English sessions with a particular focus on inverted commas, using a greater variety of conjunctions and including possessive nouns. During our reading sessions we will be focusing on various authors and selecting extracts from their books for our ‘Text Interrogation’- with an emphasis on paragraphs.
Spelling continues to be a big focus in Year 4. We will continue to have weekly spelling tests and encourage the children to use taught spellings in their writing. Please continue to support with this at home. Reading and library books will continue to be changed once a week. Please remind your child to bring their book in when they are ready to change it.
Our whole school theme for this term is ‘On a Mission’. In Geography, we will be looking at Roman Britain, with particular interest on famous locations and structures. Why they exist and the impact they’ve had on our society then and now.
The homework system will stay the same as last half term, with the children receiving weekly spellings, independent writing and Maths homework. As well as this, the children will still have project based homework to be completed over the half term. We are really impressed with the time and effort that has gone into the project based homework so far and we look forward to seeing some more fabulous work!
