Welcome to Summer Term 1 in Year 4. We are SO happy to be back in School and all together as a class again! We have lots of fun, engaging and educational activities planned for this term. Please read below all of the amazing topics we will be covering over Summer term 1:
In Literacy this term, we will be reading the non-fiction text: 'The Pebble in my pocket' by Meredith Hooper. We will be using the text as a focus and learning all about where pebbles come from and the history of the Earth. We will be studying Volcanic eruptions and how natural disasters can influence a modern-day landscape. Towards the end of the term, Year 4 will be writing their own information booklet.
In Numeracy this term, we will be finishing our work on decimals before moving on to Money, Volume, Length and area of shapes. We will continue to follow 'Maths-No Problem' books, we are currently working through workbook 4B.
Our topic for Science this term is 'How do our ears hear?' The children will be investigating how we can hear and how sound is transmitted through currents.
This term, we will be looking at The Georgian era and what it was like living in Britain during this time period. We will be going all the way back to 1714 and finding out how Britain was ruled and what life looked like back then.
The children will be doing P.E (Athletics) every Monday afternoon, due to Covid 19 restrictions, the children do not need to bring in a kit for P.E this term. They can wear their uniform and comfortable/appropriate trainers/shoes.
The children will be studying sculpture work in our Art lessons, looking at famous sculptures before creating our very own sculpture in class.
R.E and PSHCE:
In Religious Education this term, we will be learning about different signs and symbols linked to different religions and what they mean to each religion. In PSHCE, the children will be thinking about how to become Global Citizens and what it means living in the wider world, they will also be looking at rights and responsibilities and thinking about our environment and money.
It is crucial that the children are reading as much as possible! This is vital for their speaking and listening skills, language and vocabulary and general comprehension skills. We read in class and complete guided reading sessions throughout the week but please do encourage your child to read at home for enjoyment. Your child's book will be changed every Monday and this should be read at home and returned into School by Friday morning.
Please use 'Epic books' as much as possible- your child has been invited to create their profile.
Please check this page regularly, as there will be updates regarding your child’s learning and photos to display their achievements throughout the curriculum.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on Class Dojo- we are always happy to help!
