Exciting news!

Year 4 are lucky enough to be apart of the linking schools project!

We will be linking with another Year 4 class at Lapage Primary School in Bradford. Where we will build on our spiritual, moral, social and cultural skills in order to make new friends and to promote British values. 


Maths 

                                                                                                                                                 

This term we will be continuing to develop our knowledge of fractions by finding equivalence, adding fractions and subtracting fractions. After that, our next unit will be decimals where we will be learning to  recognise and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundreds. We will also be exploring the effect of dividing a one or two digit number by 10 or 100 using the language tenths and hundredths.

 

We will also be continuing with our school wide push towards increasing times tables fluency, so please encourage your child to work on their key instant recall facts alongside their spellings and any other homework they are given.     

 

English

This term we will be focusing on writing a narrative with a historical setting. As a class, we will build upon our existing grammatical knowledge using fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and use a range of powerful verbs to create interesting stories. 

Topic

Our Topic for this term Vikings! In this topic we will learn all about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings and their power for control over Britain. We will discover where they came from, what they lived like and where they invaded. We will also look at the impact this had on York, which we will visit later in the year.

 

Science

Our Science topic this term is sound. During this term we will be finding out how sound is created, how the pitch changes and we will be creating our own instruments. 

 

P.E

Our P.E days are Thursday and Friday. This half term is rounders. We will be doing P.E. inside and outside this half term. 

Please make sure your child has the correct P.E kit, both indoor and outdoor and that all kit is clearly labelled.

 

Music

This year Cedar class are lucky to be learning the guitar with Mr Boyes.  

Our lessons take place on Thursday mornings. 

 

Homework

Homework is topic based. Your child will be given 4 weeks to complete their project. If you require any extra resources for their homework, please do not hesitate to ask. 

 

 Please check planners regularly as notes and weekly spellings will be sent home in them. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
