Class 14 Year 4 2016 - 2017

Miss Broad

Welcome to Class 14!

Welcome back to school for our final half term together as Year 4! I can't quite believe how fast the time has gone! 

We will begin this half term with One World Week. In Year 3 and 4 we will be focusing our learning on Egypt. We will explore the history, culture and faith of the country alongside the this year's One World Week theme of 'Good Neighbours'. 

What does it mean to be a Good Neighbour?

Who are our neighbours?

How can we be good neighbour both globally and locally?

In English this half term we will begin with listening to and exploring a range of poetry, discussing words and phrases that capture our imagination. We will be looking in detail at word classification including nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs and prepositions.

We will then write some of our own poems including kennings which we will then perform alongside a partner and in small groups.

Following poetry, we will be sharing the story 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Phillip Pullman. We will story map and orally rehearse parts of the story in order to learn from and become familiar with its structure. Through drama and role-play we will improvise a new quest for Lila. What might happen along the way? Who will she meet?We will then plan, edit and publish our very own quest stories with the aim of extending our sentences to include rich and varied vocabulary and a range of suitable conjunctions. 

In maths we will be learning how to read roman numberals to 100 and begin to think about how the number system has changed over time! We will then be revisiting multiplication and division. This will help us with both the written methods and ways that we can ensure our mental calculations are speedy and efficient!  Please remember to continue to practise your times tables regularly, this really is SO important and will help you with ALL areas of your maths work! There will also be a chance to recap on those tricky fractions and solving money problems using decimals! Another very busy half term ahead for our maths work laugh

Please ensure that you have your P.E kit available to you in school every day, it is very important that we are partaking in P.E both for our health and as part of the national curriculum.

It is also important that you are reading regularly and that your reading record is written in and brought to school every day. Reading really is the key that opens all doors! 

Should you wish to find out more about what we will be learning in Class 14 then please refer to the 'files to download' section below, where you will be able to find out curriculum map for the first half of the summer term. This file also includes any important/useful dates. 

I am looking forward to our final half term together as a class! 

Let's make the most of it!
