Loving your Science work Omari - thank you to mum for allowing us to share this video - you're doing a great job of home teaching! The experiment's aim was to find out if the egg would break when landing if they used a parachute... you can find out the results in this video... https://t.co/szPgatTywE

Year 4

Class Teachers: Miss Buckley & Miss Mensah

Teaching Assistants: Ms Bazely

PE day: Ravens (Wednesday afternoon) Toucans (Friday afternoon)

Amount of time which should be spent reading every day: Children should spend at least 15-20 minutes a day reading. This can be broken up, for example: 10 minutes before dinner time and 10 minutes before bedtime.

Key Spellings/spelling patterns for the term: Children will receive a set of spellings for the half term. These should be practiced every day at home. There will be a spelling test the every Friday.

Key maths facts which your child needs to know this term:

  • recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations
  • count up and down in hundredths; recognise that hundredths arise when dividing an object by 100 and dividing tenths by 10
  • recognise and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundreds
  • round decimals with 1 decimal place to the nearest whole number
  • add numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition where appropriate
  • estimate and use inverse operations to check answers to a calculation
  • solve addition two-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why
  • subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate
  • estimate, compare and calculate different measures, including money in pounds and pence

     

English overview:

Our topic for this half term is ‘Explorers’. We will begin by reading the book ‘Johnathan Swift’s Gulliver’. We will be focusing on recounts using a range of descriptive language and writing our own exploration stories. Later in the half term, we will then look at non-fiction writing linked to our second book, ‘Shackleton’s Journey’.

Maths overview:

During this half term, we will be focusing on understanding place value in 4-digit numbers including decimals (tenths and hundredths). We will also be learning decimal and fraction equivalents. We will be looking at mental calculation strategies and begin to use written methods for both addition and subtraction. In Geometry, we will be learning about the properties of shapes, sorting and classifying shapes, symmetrical patterns and translations.
