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 multiplication and division. We will be learning how to use the formal method of multiplication and the bus stop method for division. Then we will be learning to calculate the area of shapes. 

 

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

Our book this half term is the Iron Man by Ted Hughes. This term we will be focusing on writing a persuasive speech and an alternative ending to our novel. We will continue to develop our grammatical skills and use fronted adverbials with confidence. 

Topic

Our Topic for this term is Road Trip of UK. We will be learning about the different parts of the United Kingdom with a geography focus. As a class, we will be using atlases to find different cities and counties. Then we will move onto a specific city focus and will explore and research more about this. 

 

Science

Our Science topic this term is living things and their habitats. We will discover how different animals can be organised using the classification keys and vertebrates and invertebrates. Children will also be given a chance to discover an endangered species. 

 

P.E

Our P.E days are Wednesday and Thursday. We will be doing P.E. inside and 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.

 

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.
