Termly Learning Focus

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

We can’t believe that the first term has been and gone already! It was an exciting time in school and the children settled extremely well into Year 4 life. They enjoyed writing about ‘Float’ and then creating their own version of this story while in maths the children worked on place value, addition and subtraction with numbers up to 10,000.

In our second term, we will continue to build on all of our hard work in what will be busy term in the lead up to Christmas.

In Literacy we will be writing a narrative based on Roald Dahl’s ‘BFG’. In Maths, we will build work with measure, with a particular focus on Length and Perimeter before moving on to our first unit of Multiplication and Division. This will look at multiplying and diving by 10 and 100 before examining the relationship between times table and division facts for the 3, 6, 9 and 7’s.

Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:

Science

History

Art

Music

PE

Computing

Animals including Humans

The Stone and Bronze Ages

Impressionism

Stop – Percussion, Djembes

Indoor – Boot Camp

 

Outdoor – Outdoor & Adventurous

How can you help with your child’s learning in school and at home?

  • This term we would like you to use the internet to research and find out about Impressionism Art. Can you find out about some Impressionism artists? Can you find out about any famous Impressionist art pieces?
  • Daily reading at home remains an important part of your child’s learning and is essential if your child is to progress across the curriculum. Reading journals must be in school every day so adults can use them to record when they read with the children. This year your child will be exploring the library. More information will follow later in the year. Homework engagement will be checked every Friday by an adult in their class. Homework this term will continue to just be Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Reading 3X a week.
  • PE will take place on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Children have outdoor PE on a Monday and indoor PE on a Tuesday. Our PE uniform requirements are as follows:

 Indoor - navy or black shorts (navy or black joggers if cold), white t-shirt and trainers

 Outdoor - navy or black joggers, white t-shirt, sports jumper and trainers.

Children need to ensure that they are in full school uniform with black shoes not trainers on all other days. Please can I remind you that children should not be wearing jewellery into school other than an ear stud which must be removed for PE sessions.

  • Please ensure that you have provided the school with any required medicines for your child such as inhalers or Epi-Pens which are in date.
