School Closure - Learning at home

Learning At Home

Happy New Year! Welcome back to the Spring term of Year 4 and to 2020! We trust you had a lovely holiday and look forward to another term full of learning and progress.
 
We will start the Spring term with our new topic called “Hey Mr DJ!”, a topic where children will use a range of technology to create their own music, animations and videos. They will learn about the history of music and how music sounds throughout the world.
 
In Science, we will study Sound. The children will learn the parts of the ear and how sounds are created and changed. Pupils will learn about weather and hobbies in French, whilst RE will begin with drawing comparisons in Hinduism and Sikhism.
 
In English, we will continue to build on our skills through a variety of texts and genres, starting with Non-Chronological reports and Treasure Island.
 
In mathematics, we will be applying our timestable skills to written multiplication and division, as well as developing our understanding of fractions and decimals. Times tables will continue to be heavily focused on in preparation for the Multiplication Tables Check. Remember that children can practice at home using the following link:
 
 
PE this term will be on Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school.
 
Thank you for your continued support,
 
Miss Lewis
