Changes to Homework

This half term will be in the form of a project instead of the weekly learning log objectives. The project should be about a country in North or Central America.  The project could focus on the country’s landmarks, cities, famous people, music, wildlife or sport.  The project can be presented in the form of a poster, a powerpoint presentation, a model or in any other interesting way. 

The weekly spellings and additionally a set of number facts to learn will be sent out weekly to be tested the following Thursday.

It is crucial to prepare for Year 5, so

please read with your child as much as you can over this half term…. nightly would be fantastic!

 

In Music this term the theme will be ‘Songs about the Sea’.  They will be learning about rhythm, create simple melodies and do some singing.  They are also learning the guitar again.

 

This half term, our topics will be:

 Geography – ‘North America’, History – ‘The Mayans’ and in Science we hope to start  our topic on ‘Sound’.

 

 

If you have any queries or concerns, please speak to your child’s teacher. If you have any views you would like to share with us about your child’s time in year 4 please let us know.

Kind regards, Year 4.

 

Text Box: We will be basing our Art this half term on Gustav Klimt.  We will use his work as inspiration to create some sculpture in readiness for the Cromer Art Festival.

In math, we are looking place Value, addition/subtraction, fractions and decimals, mental multiplication and division, measure – Time, Position and Direction.

We have really enjoyed seeing all of your math work that you have done in your homework.

 

In English, we are currently working on explanation texts, using ‘Marvelous Machines’ as our inspiration.  We will then be working on a ‘Wishing Story’.

 

 

Welcome back after your Easter break. We hope that you have had an enjoyable few weeks off and are looking forward to your final term in year 4.  We have yet another jam packed half term planned.

Year 4 Autumn 2 Newsletter.

Firstly apologises for the lateness of this newsletter but everyone has been so busy since coming back after half-term.

 

Well with Christmas fast approaching the school day is non stop at the moment.  This half-term in Literacy we have been working on a fiction text called ‘Finn and the Giant’s Causeway’, which the children are now rewriting as their own story.  We still have instructions to cover and riddles too.  All of these are closely linked with our topic of Scotland.  In Maths we have been looking at multiplication and division, we are currently looking at decimals and fractions.  We will be having a ‘Scottish DT Day’ when we will be designing, making and evaluating Scotch broth in DT.  In Art we plan to do some Scottish scenery through collage.  In RE we are looking at Christianity, although this week as it is Anti-bullying Week our lesson will be based on this.  In French we are beginning to start writing out Goldilocks in French.

Obviously as we get nearer to Christmas there will also be lots of Christmas based activities going on too.

For our junior production this year the children will be split into different groups.  Those wishing to be part of the School Choir may do so and the others will be put into 2 groups.  Each group will then perform a section within the production.
