Welcome to Year 4!
Children will recognise tenths and hundredths using a hundred square. They will write tenths as decimals and as fractions and write any number of tenths as a decimal and represent those using concrete and pictorial representations. Children will understand that a tenth is a part of a whole split into 10 equal parts and understand that when dividing by 10 the number is 10 times smaller, which will be shown on a place value chart. Children will then use this knowledge and apply it to look at hundredths, understanding that a hundredth is a part of a whole split into 100 equal parts and when dividing by 100, a number is 100 times smaller.
English: “Lost book of happy endings”.
Children will practise reading skills of inference as well as develop the ability to differentiate between fact, opinion, impartiality and bias. After writing an extended response to the text exploring the writer’s craft, authorial choices and giving their own personal stance in relation to the events, characters and overarching themes in the text they will write a prequel to the text, from the perspective of the witch.
Spellings will be covered through Spelling Shed. Spelling lists will be uploaded onto Class dojo.
The Way the Truth the Life: Early Christians.
This half term, children will be exploring how the Church began at Pentecost. They will explore the acts and behaviours of Stephen and Saul, what we can learn from this. Explore and learn about the challenges of being an apostle and Reflect on how God worked through Paul and Silas.
Theme: Are all artists painters?
This half term, Y4 will be focusing on Art and DT. We will be exploring famous artists mainly across Europe, looking at their techniques and comparing styles. Each week children will attempt to recreate similar pieces of art work from each artist. This will range from painting, portraits and collages.
Our PE day will be TUESDAY, so please come into school with your PE kits on.
A Little Reminder:
Please make sure you are accessing and practising times tables on TT Rock stars or Hit the Button.
Reading books should be returned to school every day, with an adult reading at home at least 3 times a week. Please ensure that reading records are completed by an adult to show where you are up to.
