Welcome back to school, and welcome to Year 4.
In the summer term we will be reading an e-book on virtual tours and creating our own tour of the school. This will lead the children into writing their own scripts and fact files. The build up to this will be reading different online tours, comparing websites to our own school version, devising fact files and reading and listening to tours from around the world.
Reading and comprehension continues every week with texts, which are often related to our book. We will focus on new words from the text and inference skills (reading between the lines). Please remember to listen to your child read regularly at home, ten to 15 minutes, five times a week. Please help support your child’s learning.
In Maths this term, we will be developing our knowledge on the year 4 maths scheme, which includes coordinates, fractions, place value and reasoning questions. We also have a huge school focus on word problems where the children have to apply their skills to everyday scenarios.
Remember to continue to practise your times tables. We need to know all our multiplication tables by the end of this year!
Our IPC Topic for this half term is Living together. This will give the children an understanding of how to live and succeed whilst helping your community to prosper. We will be finding out about our local community buildings, online communities and interviewing our community officer in school. They will also use scratch to show how they can discuss and comment in an online community and follow the rules set by others.
Here's to another successful half term year 4!
