In our jigsaw lessons, Year 4 have been working on our team building skills. We have learnt about how to deal with conflict and disappointment.
Have a look at our team project!
We created our own person using fruit and vegetables. They have their own lives too.
We have also been busy creating collages, about our topic rivers and mountains.
Can you spot the rivers? Can you see any tributaries? Do the rivers meander?
This term we will be learning all about decimals. We will be exploring decimals by writing them, comparing them and creating a whole. This will further develop on our decimal knowledge of tenths, hundredths and using our knowledge of dividing 1 digit and 2 digit numbers by 10.
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. This will be essential for when they sit their times table test.
Our writing stimulus is a book named When the Mountains Roared by Jess Butterworth. It is a story of a young girl who moves from Australia to India with her father and grandmother to set up a hotel in the mountains. The story is filled with love and determination as she vows to help protect the leopards in the mountains. We will be continuing to develop and use our Year 4 grammar skills, to write a range of different pieces.
Our spelling focuses are the suffixes - ous, ful, ness, tion and sion. We will also look at the prefixes - anti, inter, il, im and ir.
Our Topic for this term is called Rivers and Mountains. During this term we will be exploring how rivers are created. We will find out more about how rivers and mountains influence the world we live in. Where we will develop this further by understanding the use of the river in countries and communities, our focus will be Egypt.
Our next science topic is animals including humans. During this topic we will explore how our bodies work. We will be looking at what makes our digestive system and the functions of each part. As well as this, we will be learning about our different types of teeth. Later in the unit, we will be exploring food chains.
Our P.E days are Wednesday and Friday. We will be doing P.E. outside this half term.
Please make sure your child has indoor pumps and a jacket and trousers for outdoor P.E. Please ensure that kit is clearly labelled.
This year Cedar class are lucky to be learning the guitar with Mr Boyes.
Our lessons take place on Thursday mornings.
Homework is sent out weekly. It will be sent out on the Friday and needs to be returned on the following Wednesday. This will either be on teams or sent home in their homework books.
Please check planners regularly as notes and weekly spellings will be sent home in them.
