Year Four

Homework Topic – Year 4: St Peter

Dear Parents,

We hope that you had a lovely Easter holiday. We would like to inform you of our plans for the summer term to help you to understand the curriculum and assist your child where possible.

Maths

This term we will be starting to look at estimating and recognising inverse operations. We will also be revisiting fractions and will start to introduce decimals once the children are confident. On Tuesdays, the children will be focusing on statistics with Mrs Harvey. They will be interpreting, drawing and problem solving using different types of graphs.

English

Our book this term is The Miraculous story of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo. This is beautiful children’s book and I can’t wait to sure it with the class. We will also be teaching grammar sessions where we will be covering apostrophes to show possession, main and subordinate clauses and devices such as alliteration and personification to enhance children’s writing. We will also continue to cover the spellings from the year 4 list.

We will be carrying out group and individual reading sessions in class, so please encourage your child to check they have their reading book and reading record in school EVERY day. Please continue to read with your child at home as much as you can and make sure you sign their reading record book to show that this is happening.

Foundation Subjects

  • In science we will be learning about ‘states of matter’ (solids, liquids and gases) and ‘Sound.’
  • In History we will be learning about ‘The Vikings and Anglo-Saxon’s’
  • In RE we will be learning about ‘The Early Christians’
  • In Art we will be looking at Anglo-Saxon jewellery.
  • In Computing we will be learning about ‘Productivity.’

Swimming will continue as part of our PE curriculum on a Monday. Our PE sessions on ‘Athletics’ will be on a Thursday. Please ensure your child had their full P.E kit in school (blue shorts, school PE top and black plimsolls or trainers). Please note that trainers are preferred by Mr Maher as they give the children more stability.

Homework will continue to be given out on a Friday to be returned the following Tuesday. Please make sure you go through your child’s homework with them before they bring it in to school and sign your child’s homework book to show you are satisfied with your child’s work.

We are looking forward to happy and hardworking term. As always, if you have any concerns, please contact us before or after school.

Thank you for your continued support.

Yours sincerely.

MARY GRINSTEAD

Class Teacher
