Year 4

Welcome Back

We are really excited to welcome you back to school and for you to start your Year 4 journey. We have lots of exciting learning and experiences for you to enjoy and explore throughout the year. If you are interested in a particular subject that we are covering and you create something at home, we would love to see this and display it in our classrooms.

Homework

Our expectation is that homework is completed weekly and handed into the class teacher. Homework will be sent out on a Friday and then it should be returned the following Friday.

We can support your child with homework as part of the school day but the work set is to reinforce the learning within school so children should be able to access the work at home.

Topic Homework

The homework bingo can be completed in any order and gives you the chance to get creative and undertake further research on our topic ‘Aboard the Long ship’.

We would love to see or taste any of your homework, so once completed, please bring it into school and wow us.

Autumn Term

Topic

Our topic this term is called ‘Board the Longship’. As part of this, children will be learning about Anglo Saxons and the Vikings and where they settled. Children will also be learning about teeth and the digestive system in Science. They will also be using mixed media in Art and undertake an artist study which will result in all children innovating their own design.

Year 4 Board The Long Ship

Here are some useful topic words that will support your learning at home.

 

 

English

This term we will be using Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo and How to Train a Dragon by Cressida Cowell to drive our writing outcomes. Through these stories the children will write a Non chronological report, a recount, a narrative, a setting description and a character description. We will also study poetry and in particular we will look in more detail at cinquains.

Maths

We follow the White Rose overview to support our maths learning. This term, we will be focusing on Place Value, Area, addition and subtraction and Multiplication and Division.

As part of our Year expectations, all children will take part in the MTC (multiplication tables check) as part of government expectations. Therefore, children will be focusing on set tables fortnightly. They will also be practising the recall of arithmetic skills.
