Year 4 Term 3

Dear Parent/ Carer

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

During the first half of the Spring term, year 4 will be covering the following topics:

Literacy:          We will be reading and writing fairy stories and thinking about stories with a dilemma. We will also be studying play scripts in addition to working on spelling, grammar, punctuation and comprehension.

Numeracy:        We will be looking at adding and subtracting numbers by putting all the additions and subtractions together first, measuring and calculating the circumference, radius, diameter and chords of a circle and multiplying at least three numbers including decimals.

Science:          This half term we will be continuing with our topic  keeping warm.  We will be investigating, estimating and measuring temperature.

ICT:                 We will be collecting and presenting data. We are going to create questionnaires to collect data and use computer software to create different graphs.

Topic:               We will be looking at some countries in Europe. We are going to use iPads     to research the given countries, particularly flags, capital cities, neighbouring countries, location within the continent and the outline shape of the countries.

Art:                  We will be looking at and creating lamps using the topic ‘Light it up’

PSHE:              Understanding oneself as a learner, the feelings involved and barriers to achieving our goals are the topics this half term.
The following homework will be given most weeks:

Grammar on Mondays due Thursdays.
Numeracy on Tuesdays due Fridays
Spellings on Wednesdays due Wednesdays
Science on Thursdays due Mondays

Each piece should take no longer than half an hour. I hope this will give you a further insight into your child’s education. If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully

Mrs. Hines
