Welcome to Year 4 Falcons

 

Hello and a very warm welcome to Year 4!


We hope to make the autumn term both exciting and memorable as the children continue their Key Stage 2 journey! The children will be building on the skills they have developed in Year 3, by engaging in enquiry-based learning throughout the curriculum and taking further ownership of their learning.


In English we are starting off the term exploring the features of descriptive writing through classical fairy tales. This will be enhanced by watching a theatre production of ‘The Wizard of Oz! The children will continue using a rich and varied vocabulary through both spoken and written work. Other texts include ‘The Great Kapok Tree’ by Lynne Cherry and ‘Here We Are’, by Oliver Jeffers. Reading will be threaded throughout all aspects of learning to support children in developing their VIPERS reading skills. Various guided reading activities will be part of our weekly classroom routine.


In maths we will be continuing to develop a sense of number by recapping previous place value work before moving onto investigating 4 digit numbers. Mental and written strategies will be applied within focused maths lessons, which will be aimed at supporting the children to progress as independent, problem solving mathematicians!


Our topic this term is ‘Rainforests’. We will be making cross curricular links through our science unit of Living Things and their Habitats’.


Thank you for your valued support, please feel free to get in touch with me at any time via our Class Dojo and Twitter pages.
