As you will know from our Year Group Assembly this year Year Four will be working as ambassadors for the Christian Value "Compassion". Year Four will spend the Spring term teaching the rest of the school what it means to be compassionate.
By the end of the Spring term Year 4 are going to be CREATING and PREFORMING their own poems. After this the children will start the second part of the term by improving their story writing skills. They will then use these skills to create a gripping story.
Our Guided Reading texts this term will be based on a range of stories and play scripts. By looking at these types of text the children will be able to pull out key features and vocabulary, which will support their writing. The children will also work on their inference skills by interpreting character feelings and actions.
Year 4 will be moving on to multiplication and division during this term. Within this unit we will be focussing on the timetables 6 through to 12. We will also look at multiplying 3-digit numbers by a 1-digit number.
X-Factor will still be carried out every week and children will now bring home a copy of their work along with an example version the can practice at home.
Ssh… What’s that noise? Is it a bash, a crash, a shake or a hum?
Our toes will be tapping along to all kinds of music, and we’ll be listening to song lyrics to get lots of ideas to write our own. We’ll create artwork that represents jazz music, and look at famous, jazz-influenced art. We’ll find out how our ear works, how sound travels and learn about pitch. In D&T, we’ll investigate how musical instruments work and enjoy making our own. We’ll share our favourite music and explore how music is used in everyday life. As a challenge, we’ll create an uplifting celebration song.
