Class 15 Year 4 2016 - 2017

Miss Hough

Welcome to Class 15's page! smiley

Welcome back to school for our final half term together as Year 4!

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 describing positions on a 2-D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant and using this knowledge to plot specified points to complete shapes. We will be extending our knowledge of Place Value to understand Roman Numerals to 100 (I to C).

In addition, we will revisit written methods for multiplication and division to ensure efficient and speedy calculations. As always there will be a focus on recall of multiplication and division facts to 12x12. Remember to practise your times tables regularly at home, as this will support you in all areas of your Maths work! yes

I look forward to an exciting and busy final half term with Class 15!

Miss Hough.
