This term we are learning about the local area, cities and rivers. We will be thinking about the features of Medway and how people have changed it over time. Then we will consider why people might also live in cities as well as the features of rivers. We have a fantastic book this term, 'Oliver and the Seawigs'. It is a brilliant book with lots of adventures and comedy and we will be doing lots of writing about this as well as art linked to it.
PE is now on a Monday and Friday again and we will be learning about Gymnastics and Netball. Please send in jogging bottoms as it is still very cold out.
This term we have lots to do. Our topic is 'The Vikings' and this will link well with all that we learnt last term about 'The Anglo-Saxons'. This will give us the opportunity to make longboats and find out how and why the Vikings invaded Britain. We will be continuing to learn about humans in science. Our text for English this term is 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' and it will give us the chance to try new types of writing and it links into our topic work well.
PE this term is Swimming and this is every Tuesday. Please ensure that children have their kit with them so that they are able to take part. Please also continue to read with your children at home and question them about their books. If you need any further advice, please don't hesitate to contact me via the class dojo page.
In Term 2, we will be learning about 'The Saxons'. We will consider the impact they had on us today as well as who they were and where they came from. As part of this, we will be having an exciting trip to 'The Museum of Kent Life' where will find out about this fascinating time period.
I would ask that you continue to keep reading with your children. Below you will find a set of questions to help you question your child when reading. It is so important to continue to develop your child's comprehension skills.
In Term 1, we will be learning all about 'The Rainforest'. We will consider what is special about this unique environment and some of the problems that it faces. This will link with a range of subjects including our English lessons. There are lots of opportunities for art and music this term and we look forward to sharing these with you.
Our PE days are Monday and Friday and children will need to have their kit to take part. Please ensure that these are brought into school. As the weather begins to change through the term, children will need tracksuit bottoms for outdoor PE. All kit will need to be labelled.
Please continue to use Class Dojo and contact books if you need to contact the Year 4 team.
I would recommend use of mathletics and spellodrome at home to further consolidate learning. Links to this are included below.
Homework will be set every Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. Homework is important as it will mainly revise and consolidate previous learning and, on occasions, involve research. Your child will also be given weekly spelling lists to learn every Monday and they will be tested on Fridays. We ask that you please support your child in completing their homework by the stated date and in practising their spellings in preparation for weekly tests. If your child is unsure of any aspect of their homework or weekly spellings, please encourage them to discuss this with me.
Please also find a recommended book list for Year 4 below. This has books appropriate to our year group that children may enjoy reading at home with you.
