WELCOME TO YEAR 4
With Miss C Rowlands
This term, we will be studying the following text: Arthur and the Golden Rope by Joe Todd-Stanton. All of our Reading and Writing work will surround our core text of Arthur and the Golden Rope. We will be reading this class text together, focusing on the author’s use of language, how the plot develops and how we can apply this to our own writing across a variety of styles and contexts. This text links to our Spring Topic of Vikings, where we will explore examples of Norse Mythology.
Children will be completing a weekly dictation based on the spelling list sent out at the beginning of each half term. Please support your children by encouraging them to use these words in sentences to consolidate their understanding.
This term, pupils will further their knowledge and understanding in the following areas:
Number- Multiplication and Division
Children will have times tables checks and tests throughout the week, focusing on them being confident recalling multiplication facts up to 12 x 12. They should also work on expanding their speed of recall, as well as knowing the corresponding division facts.
This term, Science lessons will focus on the following areas:
Pupils will listen to and identify sounds and learn how our ears work to detect sounds. They will carry out experiments to help them learn about loudness and pitch. They will investigate the best material for muffling sound.
