ENGLISH

The English curriculum will continue with the development of spoken language, reading and writing skills. Children will develop their reading comprehension skills as well as learn spellings, punctuation and grammar. They will learn new skills and contexts for writing based on core texts. This term we will be looking at ‘The Iron Man by Ted Hughes’.​ 

Reading (minimum of 10 minutes a day) – Shared reading and reading aloud helps children develop their higher-order comprehension skills. Please remind your child to fill in their reading record and complete their reading journal every week.

Spellings (10 minutes per day) – Please encourage your child to learn the spelling rules and the meanings of words as well as the spellings. Encourage children to use READ, COVER, WRITE, CHECK method.

Maths

The National Curriculum for Maths is being taught using the ‘Singapore Maths’ approach.

The term will begin by looking at Place Value and Numbers to 10,000. In this chapter, pupils will learn about place value up to 10,000. This will also include number patterns, comparing numbers and even solving some word problems.

Then we will move onto addition and subtraction within 10,000. In this chapter, pupils will learn different methods to add and subtract. We will also be doing some word problems using bar models.

Topic

In History this term we look be investigating The Ancient Greeks and their impact on western civilization. We will also look at some major ancient cities such as Athens and Sparta and how their rivalry impacted ancient Greece.

School uniform & PE kit

Please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled with your child’s name. PE lessons will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Children must come to school with their PE kit on the days that they have PE.

Science

Our Science topic this term will be ‘Electricity’. We will be finding out about how electricity is involved in our lives and the benefits of electrical products, such as the electric car.

The Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)

This academic year, 2021-2021, we expect and are preparing to have their multiplication skills formally tested in the new statutory test. 

We encourage children to memorise multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12. This will only aid them in the future.

By regularly practising, children will develop their knowledge of multiplication tables in order to recall facts with precision and fluency.

Islamic Studies and Arabic

Children will continue to revise surahs from the Holy Qur’an as well as duas. They will continue learning Arabic from our specialist Arabic/Islamic Studies teacher. Their topic this term is the importance and significance of Ikhlaas and the Basmallah.

Year 4 Homework Guidance

Homework is important because it helps to consolidate classroom teaching. Please establish a homework routine and encourage your child to complete their homework that will be set on the Year 4 Google classroom.

 

Computing

In computing this term we will mainly focus on online safety. We will cover issues such as; screen time, digital footprints and phishing. Towards the end of the half term we will also be using Google Docs to produce a newspaper report.
