Autumn Term 2020

It is great to be back! The Year 4 team are excited to be back at school and are looking forward to the exciting year of learning ahead. 

In Literacy this term we will be using our science learning about the digestive system to write our own explanation texts. We will then have fun creating our own poems around the theme of healthy eating. We will then get to combine our computing and performance skills in our first multimedia task. 

There will be a deep focus on understanding and recollection of the times tables facts in Year 4, all the way up to 12X12.  We will be implementing regular practice in class and using Times Table Rockstars to enjoy practice at home through class tournaments. Our first one is already underway and will run until the 23rd of October. Which class will be victorious? 

In maths this term we will be building upon our place value knowledge, identifying and representing numbers in a variety of ways. We will develop further understanding of addition and subtraction. Our topic this term is the Romans so we will also be learning about Roman Numerals. 

During our Romans topic we will be learning about the Roman invasion of Britain. Where it all began, why the Romans invaded Britain, what changes they brought with them and how the Roman army helped Rome expand. We will have a chance to show off what we have learnt in Literacy when we write all about the Romans in our Non Chronological Reports. 

In art we will be practising weaving, making mosaics and designing our own Roman shields. In gSTEM this term, the children will be designing Roman army inspired catapults. For our other gSTEM unit this term we will be thinking about climate change and the importance of renewable energy. 

In PE we will be building our endurance with running games and the Gomer Mile. We will complete the beep test early on in the unit and again at the end so we can see how we have improved our fitness! 

The Year 4 team are really looking forward to what will be a busy but enjoyable year of learning. If there are any concerns or questions relating to any of the above then please do not hesitate to arrange an appointment with either Miss Ingram or Mrs Fry
