Welcome to the Year 4 Page
Home Learning for Autumn 1
Here are the words that the children need to be able to spell by the end of Year 4.
Choose a 3 or 4 each week to practice then come back to them regularly.
Stick them up around the house so you see them each day. Then put them in an envelope when you've got them.
Keep practising your timetables using Timetable Rockstars. You should know all your times tables by the end of the year.
Also practise your number bonds to help you with your quick addition:
Summer 2nd Half
In our first topic, 'Bombs Away', we learn about World War Two. This is a brilliant topic as we spend time learning about lots of different areas associated with the war; evacuation, the Blitz, rationing and propaganda. We usually visit The Imperial War Museum where we can experience what it was like during the Blitz and being in a air raid shelter.
Our second topic, 'Getting to know you', is based around the book 'Secret Friends'. This is a wonderful book based around a dilemma faced by a girl at school, and so we consider how to resolve our own problems and dilemmas.
In the Spring term our topics are 'Shaping the World' and 'Land of the Lion King'.
In 'Shaping the World' we read the fabulous book 'Hugo', and learn all about inventors and individuals who have shaped the world as well as exploring instructional writing and biographies.
During our 'Land of the Lion King' topic we compare our lives to those who live in a traditional African village with those who live in African cities. We even learn and perform traditional African dances and music.
This is our term for swimming at Wavelengths Swimming Pool, Deptford.
In our first topic 'Friends, Romans and Countrymen' we study the Romans. Alot of our art work this term focuses around the Romans so we have great fun making Roman mosaics, tiles and many other things.
In the second half of the term we move onto the 'Vikings and Anglo Saxons' where we look at settlements and maps, Anglo Saxon jewellery, as well as making our own long boats - can we make them float though?!
