In the Summer Term, Year 4 are delving into the world of suspense tales. We will be learning all about how to create action and suspense within our writing to grab and hold onto the readers interest.
Within our lessons we will be concreting our understanding and skills of the Year 4 expectations, particularly focus on our description techniques and how we apply all the amazing vocabulary we have learnt throughout the year.
For DERIC Reading this half term, we will be delving into the story of 'Running on the roof of the world' by Jess Butterworth. Within these sessions, we are focusing on the emotional journey that the main character 'Tash' goes through with each challenge she faces. We will be creating our own reading journals to track this journey.
This year we will be using the Power Maths programme to deliver our Maths learning. We have now begun our learning on Unit 10 and 11 - decimals. Within this unit we are learning the place value of tenths and hundredths, how to divide by 10 and 100 into decimals and how fractions and decimals link.
Within our RAYS Maths sessions, we will be focusing on our understanding of fractions especially focusing on how to identify equivalent fractions. We will also be developing our problem solving skills and how we reason and explain our ideas/understanding to others.
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 - Misty Mountains!
Mighty mountains peak above the morning mists, imposing and eternal, rocky outcrops at their feet. Discover how these giants are formed, as a fold or a block, a dome or a plateau.
We will be following the water cycle's course from peak to valley, learning scientific vocabulary as we go.
Using OS maps will be at the focus of this topic, learning all about their key features and how they represent the physical features of an area. We will be creating our own sketch maps of our town of Lutterworth, learning more about our local area.
Finally, we will plan a mountain expedition from the BMC that is eco-friendly and as safe as can be!
Our Knowledge Organisers
Want to try any other exciting activities linked to our I am Warrior topic? Why not have a go at some of these!
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!
What an amazing day we had at Conkers today (Thursday 20th June). We have so many exciting stories to tell you and pictures to share!

In the Summer Term we are reading 'Running on the roof of the world'.
WB 17/06/2019 and 24/06/2019
This week we are looking at how Tash's emotional reactions to challenges are changing. We are finding out more about what has changed in Tash's home country and how this affecting her and her family.
We are continuing to build our own personal scrapbooks of Tash's journey through Tibet to India. Today (27th June) we found out that Tibet is known as 'the roof of the world', because of the number of mountains it contains. We were really excited to find this out as it explains the title of our story!
