Welcome to Year 4 Kestrels

 

Hello and a very warm return to Year 4!
This term in English the children will be developing their reading skills by applying their VIPERS skills (vocabulary, inferencing, predicting, explaining, retrieving, summarising) to a wider variety of longer texts. The children will access reading materials linked to fiction novels such as ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’, by Roald Dahl to non-fiction texts based on real life events such as ‘Shackleton’s Journey,’ by William Grill. High exposure to quality texts will then support the children in writing a range of pieces such as recounts, diary entries, instructions, reports and job descriptions.
In maths the children will be moving onto looking at length, measurement, properties of shape and geometry, whilst still having daily opportunities to apply their knowledge of the four operations and times tables. Problem solving, involving mental and written strategies, will continue to be threaded into each lesson.
Our topic this term is ‘Romans’. We will be making cross curricular links to non-fiction texts in English as well as linking to Design Technology by producing banners in textiles and moving mechanisms.
Thank you for your valued support, please feel free to get in touch with us at any time via our Class Dojo and Twitter pages.
