Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Welcome to the spring term in Class 4.

In English, our key texts include The Green Ship by Quentin Blake and Gregory Cool by Caroline Binch. We will be writing adventure stories, advertising brochures, instructions and diary entries, working on developing our understanding of writing for different purposes and developing the key grammar skills required in Year 4.

In maths, we start the term by deepening our knowledge of multiplication and division, moving on to formal written methods, multiplying and dividing 3 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers. Later in the term we learn how to calculate the area of rectilinear shapes, extend our knowledge of fractions and introduce decimals.

Our history topic in the first half term is Britain’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade. We discuss what it means to be free, what goods were traded between nations, the experiences of slaves and how slavery was abolished. After half term we have a geography topic and take a virtual road trip though United States of America.

In science, we study electricity with hands-on experience building and testing circuits. Later in the term we look at living things and their habitats.

We study Christianity and Judaism in RE and will be discussing the key questions, ‘What kind of world did Jesus want?’ and ‘How do festivals and family life show what matters to Jewish people?’

In addition, we will; learn how to blog in computing, study the art of Piet Mondrian, write a rap in music, learn colours, shapes and the body in French and discuss our aspirations and how be healthy in PSHE.

As last term, our PE lessons are on a Thursday.
