WELCOME TO YEAR 4 2020-21 WITH MRS CLARKE & MRS SYKES

WELCOME(1)

Welcome to our Year Four Class Page. 

This page will be updated every half term to help keep you up to date with the things we will be working on this year. 

There will also be a copy of my long term plan for the year and each half term I will add my medium term plan for the half term. 

Look out for helpful websites to support the learning at home and a copy of the spellings for each half term. 

ENGLISH

yr 4 text 4

This half term we will be using ‘Escape from Pompeii’ by Chrsitina Balit, which links really well with our History unti on the Romans and last terms work in Geography on volcanoes. We will be looking to write from different characters points of view, using verb forms, standard English, direct speech and organising paragraphs into themes.

 

MATHS

This half term we will begin the half term by looking at how we use money. This will involve counting, writing and estimating amounts of money and solving problems involving money. We will follow money with a week on area and how we measure the area of regular and irregular shapes and how multiplication and division can help us. Finally we will be leaning about fractions. This will include counting in hundredths, finding equivalent fractions, simplifying fractions and adding and subtracting fractions.
