In our English lessons we will be using The Ice Palace to write a finding tale and a non-chronological report.
We are learning how to use commas correctly in our writing, how to edit effectively as well as working on our handwriting to earn our pen licences!
Spellings for Spring 1
Spellings are glued into planners on a Tuesday to be tested the following Tuesday (due to swimming). Please encourage the children to learn the letter patterns and practise their handwriting at the same time.
In Guided Reading this half term, we are studying the novel Stormbreaker. We will be looking at characters and inference in the book, but also answering comprehension questions based on these using our VIPERS scheme.
In our maths lessons this half term we are learning about:
- Multiplication and Division
In Year 4, we work very hard on learning our times tables ready for the multiplication check in the summer term. So, it is very important that we know every times table fact fluently.
Our times tables for Autumn 2 are: 6x, 9x, 12x.
TIMES TABLES CLUB IS AVAILABLE FOR ALL YEAR 4 CHILDREN ON A WEDNESDAY 3:15-4:15PM.
In Science, we are studying Living Things and their Habitats. The children are learning about classes of living thing: mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians, how to sort between them and where some of these species live.
In History, we are learning about the Roman invasion of Britain. We are looking at when and why the Romans came to Britain, Boudicca's revolt and the Battle of Watling Street, Roman beliefs and daily life.
We will be having an educational visit at the end of this topic to consolidate our learning.
