Year 4 Summer 2 Curriculum Newsletter -
Welcome back after the Half term break. We have another exciting half term ahead!
Reading books will be changed on either Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays. Homework timetables will be sent home on a Friday. Spellings will be tested on a Tuesday morning so you will have 4 days to learn these spellings before they are tested.
This term our topic will be ‘Hunted'.
In English we will continue to learn and apply reading strategies and will be using the answer it, prove it, explain it (APE) strategy to construct answers to questions. The three units we will cover over the Half term are called Folktales, Poetry and Debating . We will identify and discuss the purpose, audience, language and structures of narrative in order to plan and write our own version.
In maths we will learn about negative numbers, hundredths, converting between different units of measures, solving problems with fractions, learning about co-ordinates and translations and learning to solve problems with 24hr clocks. We are focusing on reasoning skills and problem solving and will be expecting lots of explanations about maths understanding. ALL children working at the expected standard in Year 4 must know their times tables so we will be focusing on these and sending home lots of times tables practise over the next term.
In Science we will be learning about and investigating different Habitats. During the topic we will also learn about Habitats in our local environment.
Our Design Technology will be creating and making a healthy recipe.
We will take part in PE sessions with Blackburn Rovers this term and will enjoy dancing.
Computing is all to do with the children being able to create their own Wiki page so the unit is called 'We are co-authors'.
In 'World and I' (R.E) - we will be thinking about the deeper meanings of the different celebrations around the world.
In Music we will be learning a new string instrument called a Ukelele, through which we will learn all about tempo, rhythm and pitch. We will be in touch to share the date of the performance.
