Year 4 2019-2020
Welcome to Year 4 - Autumn 1 Term
Miss Howard, Mrs Winterbottom and Mrs Gilmore make up the Year 5 team
English this term will link in with our theme – Memories. This term we will focus on the story ‘The Tinder Box’ 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.
The children’s spelling and grammar skills will also be of key focus this year so support with spellings would be extremely appreciated.
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.
We begin our new term with the theme ‘Memories’ linking to The Georgians. Throughout our theme we will be developing our understanding of The Georgians, through a variety of interesting activities involving Design and Technology, Science and Art.
Throughout the topic we will be learning about; the Georgian way of life, artefacts from that era and traditions we still use today.
Project based homework will be given out over extended periods of time over the half term and English, Maths and spellings will be given out on a weekly basis. Support at home with homework will be a fantastic help to your child.
Homework will be given each Friday and returned the following Friday.
