Our Christian Value of Compassion 

   

 

This term in Year Four:

English

In the Spring Term we are continuing to work on our narrative skills, this time creating Change Stories, focusing on setting descriptions. We will be continuing to focus on our punctuation accuracy, alongside building our understanding of different sentence types to hook the reader. We will be using the story Wing within our English lessons. 

Having now completed our Guided Wing stories, the children are now developing their skills in planning, writing and editing independently. We hope to share these with you soon. 

Reading

For DERIC Reading this half term, we will be delving into the story of How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. We are focusing on developing our understanding of the Author's choice specifically 'discussing words and phrases that capture the reader's interest and imagination'. 

Within some of our Guided Reading sessions we will be learning, practicing and enhancing our performance skills for our Easter production. 

Maths

This year we will be using the Power Maths programme to deliver our Maths learning. We have now begun our learning on Unit 6, Multiplication and Division (2). During this unit we will be learning about effective written methods for both multiplication and division, whilst applying the knowledge we have learnt so far in problem solving activities. 

Within our RAYS Maths sessions, we will continue to apply our written methods from our last unit in problem solving contexts. We will be developing of confidence in using a range of different representations including Bar Models and Part, Part, Whole models.  

X-Factor will still be carried out every week and children will continue to bring home a copy of their work along with an example version the can practice at home.

Connected Curriculum - I Am Warrior!

To start the Spring term, we will be delving into the world of Roman Britain and the impact of the age of the Celts!  Discovering the greatest leaders of the time including Boudicca and Julius Caesar, we will learn all about what the Romans did for us today. As we move through the topic, we will be preparing for Gladiator School creating our own Roman Shields by developing our DT skills, alongside learning about how to move and work as a Roman Army, as well as discovering the fashions of the time.

Our previous learning! 

Alongside our Potions topic, we created melted wax crayon art work. We thought about the impact of the scientific process of melting and how we can use this to create effective artwork. We worked in small groups, building our collaborative working skills alongside needing to be creative thinkers. We were all really proud of the artistic outcomes!
