Welcome to Year 4!
Year 4 we will be working on narrative verse, play scripts and explanation texts. We will be investigating fronted adverbials, plurals and the correct use of apostrophes to mark plural and singular possession. We will also be exploring characters through inference. Our class reader this term is The Firework Maker’s Daughter by Phillip Pullman.
Our maths this term is number and place value (4 digit and 5 digit numbers), mental and written addition and subtraction, mental and written multiplication and division. Finding equivalent fractions, simplifying fractions and finding fractions of amounts. Geometry and problem solving.
Our topic this term has a geographical slant, as we will be investigating Rivers and Canals through literature, research and a local history study. We will also be using maps, atlases, globes and digital and computer mapping to locate the counties and cities of the United Kingdom and some countries in Europe. We will identify human and physical characteristics.
ALL children must read for at least 20 minutes per night and an adult should record this in their Reading Record Book. Daily practice of their weekly spellings and multiplication tables is also essential.
Each half-yerm a topic based project may be completed to present to the class. This can be in the form of a Powerpoint presentation, poster, written piece or model. The project can also be uploaded onto the RM Learning Platform. On here can also be found other programs to enhance the childrens' learning.
