Welcome to our Year 4 class


English - The Wonder Garden by Kristjana Williams

We will be finishing off our work on The Iron Man by writing our own sequels to the story. Then we will be moving onto 'The Wonder Garden', a beautiful book that looks at different habitats and the the animals that live in them. We will be writing our own reports and creating some colourful art work based on the book.   We will be continuing our work on coordinating conjunctions and using subordinate conjunctions as well as expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials, pronouns and nouns within and across sentences.

We will continue our work on the year 4 word list as well as prefixes, suffixes and homophones.

recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear

find patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produced it

find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it

recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases
