Welcome to Year 4!
Outlined below is what we will be learning about this term and some general information about the class.
During Term 1, in English we will be using the text How to Train Your Dragon to write instructions and narrative pieces.
To support this, in our art/DT lessons we will be creating dragon eyes.
This term we will be focusing on Geography and comparing the UK to the Netherlands. In this topic we will use compass skills and using atlases to compare the features in each country. See the MTP below for more information.
Staff in Raven Class
Mrs Brown is our teaching assistant and she will be in class every morning to support the children's learning. Please follow this link to watch my 'Meet the Teacher' video and learn a little about what happens in Raven Class.
In Year 4, the children choose their own books to read at home. Not only does this promote independence but the children pick books that interest them and therefore get more enjoyment from their reading. The children should still be reading 5 times a week and this should also include reading with an adult, where the adult can extend their understanding by asking questions about the text.
The children will be set weekly homework on a Friday, this will include reading, MyMaths and/or purplemash, times tables and spellings.
We've got some exciting topics and work planned this year and can't wait to get started!
