Welcome to Year 4!
Year 4 are taught by Mrs Scarboro, Miss Roberts, Mrs Shaw and Mrs Price, supported by the expertise of Mrs Leesing, Mrs Lea and Mrs Scowen.
In the Autumn term we will be exploring 'The Blue Abyss', learning about life under the sea. Our learning will be supported by a visit to The Deep where we will study sea ecosystems and food chains. Later in the year will be taking part in exciting projects such as 'The Final Straw', 'Food Glorious Food' and 'The Land of Fire and Ice'.
In Maths, we will be revising place value and the four operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be working on converting between analogue and digital clocks using the 12 and 24 hour clocks. We will compare and classify quadrilaterals and triangles, identify lines of symmetry and work out the acute, obtuse and right angles in a variety of shapes. We will continue to learn how to recognise and show equivalent fractions before moving on to calculating fractions of amounts. We will read, understand and interpret bar charts, pictograms and time graphs. We will measure and calculate the perimeter and area of shapes and practice estimating and converting to different measurements.
We are teaching English this term through studying 'Oliver and the Seawigs', and embedding our reading and writing skills within our lessons. It's a very exciting way of teaching English and we hope it evokes a love of reading in children.
More detailed information about our areas of study can be found by clicking on the 'Information for Families' star below.
Spellings will be set on a Friday and will be assessed on the following Thursday.
Class homework will be set on the Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
As a reminder, we would like the children to have their reading diaries, reading books, and homework diaries in school every day and for them to aim to read five times each week.
