Take a few minutes to look around our classroom.
In English, we will be learning all about 'painting a picture’ with our words. We will explore how poets use language to create an image in the reader's mind by using powerful verbs, expanded noun phrases, alliteration, similes and metaphors. Watch the performances and choose your favourite words and phrases. Be prepared to record your own recitations.
The focus for this half term will be multiplication and division. We will continue to build on multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000 from last half term. Don't worry, I know this was tricky but, we will use our place value knowledge to help us with both multiplication and division too. In addition to this, we will continue to practise methods learnt for addition and subtraction to help you become more fluent so, you can apply them to problem solving challenges. If you are struggling with any of the methods learnt, watch the videos below as you will find them helpful.
Can you guess what our new topic is?
If you thought it was volcanoes, you are absolutely right! In Year 4, we will be learning all about one of our planet's natural disasters.....volcanic eruptions. Use the national geographic website to learn interesting facts about this phenomena.
Spellings for this half term
All homework tasks will be set online so, keep an eye out for new tasks each week. Also, make sure you are practising your timetables using TT rockstars and keep up your word count by accessing reading materials on MyOn.
