Year 4 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Class Four
Summer 1 2021-22
We hope that you had a great Easter break, and are now fully recharged and ready for all the learning and fun this half term.
Our English, as usual, will be based around a range of fantastic books and I will give details of these as we go along...don't want to give too much away!
In Maths this half term will be focussing on; Place value and decimals, Multiplication and division, Area and perimeter, 2D and 3D shapes and fractions and decimals. There will also be a big focus on times tables as we begin our practise for the upcoming statutory Multiplication Tables Checker (MTC) at the end of May.
We will have a Geography focus this half term looking at the question: Why are jungles so wet and deserts so dry? Throughout the enquiry, the children will be encouraged to reflect upon how climate has such an important influence upon landscapes, plants, animals and human activity on Earth – they investigate this relationship at a number of scales. This will enable them to better understand the relationship between climate and living things and also to introduce them to the concept of biomes.
In Science, we will be continuing to look at Living things in their Habitats and our topic this half term will be 'Help our Habitats'. We will be looking at how environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things. Can we do anything about it?
- Please see the Homework timetable below for when homework is set and when it is due in. In addition to previous terms, there will also be a times tables booklet sent home.
- Spellings can be found on the class page as a news item and times tables will be all tables with a timing of 6 seconds per question. Both will be tested on a Friday.
- P.E./Games kits needed for Tuesdays and Thursdays.
- Remember to use the learning hub below for easy access to the websites we regularly use.
Please remember, if you have any questions or concerns or if you would like to volunteer to help out or share your expertise in a particular area, you can contact us through the school office, see us at the beginning or end of the school day or contact us through the class email address.
Let’s conitinue to work together to make this a fantastic year for the children of Class 4.
