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.
During the second half of our Autumn term Year 4 are going to be writing their own information texts and explanation texts about various parts of our bodies. The children will be carrying out a range of experiments throughout the rest of the term to support them with this.
Our Guided Reading texts this half term are a number of information texts from the DK text 'Human Body Encyclopaedia'. The focus this term being on non-fiction information texts. These texts will be about our teeth, the digestive system and healthy eating.
During this half of the Autumn term Year 4 will be focussing on the addition and subtraction of numbers within 10,000. This will involve learning a range of written and mental strategies before applying these to problem solve. After this, Year 4 will move on to multiplication and division. Within this unit we will be focussing on the timetables 6 through to 12.
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.
Open wide – let’s look inside! We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body.
This half term, we’ll become our very own dentists. We’ll find out about different dental procedures and learn new scientific vocabulary. At school, we’ll use this information to write toothy fact files. There will be lots of investigating as we learn about our different teeth, how to brush them and how sugary drinks affect them. We’ll examine the amount of sugar in different foods and create images of ourselves with healthy and unhealthy teeth. We’ll then move on to look at the digestive system and find out the journey a piece of food takes through the our bodies. In science, we’ll learn about the organs involved in digestion and make our own wearable digestive systems in D&T.
There are currently no events.
Our Reading focus for across this half term is; understanding and interpreting character emotions within fiction narratives; making predictions and discussing key language.
Our Reading comprehension focus will be on the words and phrases within a range of different texts.
