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

where the forest meets the sea

This half term we will be using ‘Where the forest meets the sea’ by Jeanine Baker.

It is a story based on an island in the Daintree Forest in Australia.

The children will be creating a zoo notice information board about the rainforest.

They will be using simple organisational devices in non-narrative material, writing in the present tense, using subordination (when, if, that, because) and coordination (or, and, but), using expanded noun phrases, building a varied and rich vocabulary and using paragraphs to organise information and ideas around a theme.

MATHS

This half term we will converting measures including mass, volume and length and recapping over how we use Roman numerals.

After assessment week we will be looking at angles and triangles and learning how to plot positions and how to use bar graphs and line graphs.

We will also be completing the multiplication checker and hopefully quite of few of us will be completing the times table challenge!
