English - The Iron Man by Ted Huges

We will be starting this half term with ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. We will be looking at poetry, play scripts, newspaper reports and writing a sequel to the story ‘The Iron Man in Penketh!’  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.

Maths

times tables

One of our main focuses in year 4 is times tables and we will be practising these every day, with our times tables challenge starting very soon. We will be introducing how to measure the area of an object as well as a lot of work on fractions – equivalent fractions, mixed numbers, improper fractions and adding and subtracting fractions. At the end of half term we will carry out some work on time, introducing the 24 hour clock and changing units of time,
