Autumn 1: Week beginning 10th October 2021

 

RE:  Topic: Called

This week in RE, we will be exploring the times when we have been called or chosen to do something. Later in the week we will be comparing the calls of Samuel and David.

 

English: Book: I Was a Rat! by Phillip Pullman

 

Grammar: We will be practicing our use of inverted commas to correctly punctuate direct speech in our newspaper reports.

 

Reading: We will focus on inferring information from the text to support our answers.

 

Maths: Addition

This week we will be recapping how to represent numbers in Roman numerals. Then we will be developing methods to support us in adding 3 and 4-digit numbers.

 

Homework

This week, we will be focusing on the 8 Times Tables on TT Rockstars. 

Homework will normally be set every Monday on Google Classroom to be handed in on Friday. We will be focusing on Reading, Spelling and Times Tables practice.

In Year 4, we know how important Reading is to develop the children in all subjects. Therefore we expect the children to read for at least 10 minutes each day, 5 times per week as part of your their homework. The children can read a book from the Class Library, from Bug Club online or a book from home. In Year 4, it is important to do a mixture of independent reading and reading with an adult and for your child to independently record their opinions about the book in their Reading Record. 

Please find below our curriculum for Year 4

Please enjoy a selection of photos of the work we carry out in class over the course of this year:

Week beginning: 27/9/21: This week we carried out a debate in our English lessons, deciding whether Roger should stay with Mr Tapscrew or go.

Week beginning 20/9/21: In Art this week, we experimented with using watercolours to paint a London skyline. It took us a while to learn to use enough water!

Week beginning 13/9/21: In Science this week, we have been exploring the properties of liquids. This is us carrying out a fair experiment to discover which liquid pours the slowest.

Week beginning 6/9/21: In RE this week, we have been looking at the stories of some of Jesus's ancestors. These are our depictions of Abraham and his family on their journey to Canaan
