Welcome to Year 4

Mr Anderson and Mrs Parkhouse work in Year 4.

Autumn Term 

English

English this term we will focus on the story ‘Minpins’ and will be writing our own creative version of the text. We will start by looking at the features of the story and enhancing the children’s writing through text interrogation. In the second half of the Autumn term we will be exploring 'The Plague' by Ann Turnbull, creating our own historical narratives. We will focus on using expanded noun phrases and ambitious vocabulary.

The children’s spelling and grammar skills will also be of key focus this year so support with spellings would be extremely appreciated.

Maths

We will start off the term focusing on place value; partitioning numbers, rounding and adding and subtracting up to four digit numbers. We will also focus on times tables and shape. In  the second half of the Autumn term we will be looking at measurement, area and perimeter.

Theme

We begin with our focus on PSHE where the children will be exploring and achieving their aspirations for Year 4 and the future.

Our Geography focus will be comparing and contrasting similarities and differences with inner city life and that of life in a rural environment. In the second half of the autumn term we will turn to our History focus, 'The Plague' looking at the impact the plague had on Britain. 

Science- In Science we will be investigating Electric Circuits.
