Our Christian Value of Compassion 

 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.


This term in Year Four:


During the first half of our Autumn term Year 4 are going to be creating description for our class text 'Flotsam' The children will be asked to write the descriptions to go along with the books images, as the book currently has no words. We will then move on to looking a poetry related to our topic 'Blue Abyss'.


Our Guided Reading text this half term is Stowaway by Julia Jarman. The reading skill we are focussing on this week is inference and the author's choice of language. Here are this week's RIC questions that the children will be exploring.


RIC Questions


In the Autumn term Year 4 will be continuing to build on their understanding of place value and number. Our main focusses will be; understanding the values of the digits in a 4-digit number, ordering these numbers, rounding and estimating.

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.
