Autumn Term 2020

 

 INFORMATION ABOUT THE CURRICULUM IN YEAR 4

 

ASPIRE AND GROW TOGETHER TOPIC
This term, we are contributing to our whole school project to redesign our school garden. During the process we will explore and embed our new ASPIRE values considering what they mean to us. We will be combining many creative skills during this exciting project!

 

MATHS
Our focus this term is place value and understanding number through the use of concrete, pictorial and abstract representations. Every week we will complete a Terrific Times Tables quiz to help children learn their times tables. It is expected that by the end of Year 4, almost all children can recall times tables facts to 12 x 12. 

ENGLISH  

We will be comparing two texts this half term to explore current themes relevant to the children. We will analyse vocabulary and sentence structure and create pieces of descriptive writing linked to both the texts and our 'Aspire and Grow Together Project'. Through drama and discussion, we will also develop speaking and listening skills.

READING

Using an exciting range of texts, the children will have the opportunity to reignite their love for reading. At home, children should read for a minimum of 10 minutes each day. They should fill in their reading records to show that they have read. Parents/Carers must sign the reading record once a week.

 

PE

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school with the correct PE kit. PE kits will be brought home every week to be washed.

 

HOMEWORK

At first, homework will consist of reading, spellings and times tables. The amount of homework will increase over the next few weeks as the children settle back into school life.

 

The usual homework timetable for Year 4 is as follows:

  • Daily reading for a minimum of 10 minutes
  • Wednesday: Maths homework is sent out and is to be completed by Monday (MyMaths/ Timestables Rockstars / Mathletics)
  • Friday: Spellings are given out. Spelling tests take place on Fridays
  • Topic homework is given out in the form of a TIC-TAC-TOE grid. This will be distributed after half term
