Y4 Autumn One – Overview
Welcome to the Year 4 page. I am Miss Richardson, the class teacher, and this year we will be working alongside Mrs. Robinson, Mrs. Chambers and Miss Morgan. Keep an eye out on this page for regular updates and see what we are up to.
We have two topics this term, one for each half term. These will be: United Kingdom and Africa. We will be looking at what makes us British, as well as similarities and differences between our lifestyles and lifestyles of children living in Africa.
Our science topic is ‘Electricity’. We will be learning how to stay safe around electricity, how to complete a circuit and how to control a circuit using a switch. The children will work scientifically and collaboratively to investigate how circuits work.
During English this term, our focus will continue to be on developing our writing. We will be doing work on the well-known children’s story, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, as well as super work on our grammar and sentence structure.
In maths, we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and measurement.
We will also be doing lots of exciting and creative work in: art, PE, Spanish and music.
Please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school at all times.
Children are encouraged to take their book bags and reading book home and are expected to read at home each evening, as this is extremely important in their education.
- Please can you ensure that your child’s school uniform, coat and PE clothes are labelled with their name. It is very easy for items to be lost or taken by mistake. This makes it easier for us to return the item of clothing to you instead of placing it in lost property.
Thank you for your support – Miss Richardson
