To begin the year, Year 4 will be exploring Wishing Tales. Within this piece of writing, we will be focussing on our 'Characterisation Toolkit' as well as a range on grammar techniques to develop our narrative writing. We will be focusing particularly on the use of subordinate and co-ordinating conjunctions and the vocabulary we can use to show time, place and cause (e.g conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions).
For DERIC Reading this half term, we will be delving into the story of The Captive Celt - Terry Deary. This text links brilliantly to our I Am Warrior topic and explores the fictional relationship between Romans and Celts. Within this text we will explore character's feelings, thoughts and motives. We will also unpick the vocabulary and strategies the author has used to engage the reader.
This year we will be continuing to use the Power Maths programme to deliver our Maths learning. We have begun the year looking at Place Value of 4 Digit Numbers. Please look at our unit overview below to explore the objectives, vocabulary and methods used within this unit.
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
I am Warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful. Meet me in battle. Draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare! Invade and attack, Romans versus the Celts, the fight is on...
Discover warring Britain: meet Claudius, Boudicca and Julius Caesar, and find out what the Romans did for us.
Get ready for Gladiator School and learn alongside Spartacus and Spuculus: brave fighters of the Roman Colosseum.
When all that battling makes you hungry, relax, lie back and feast yourself on dormice and grapes, or perhaps a roasted swan sprinkled with nuts?
