Year 4 - Spring Term Newsletter

 

During spring term we will be looking into the topic of Through the Keyhole. We will be looking into the life of Henry VIII and his wives. We will be taking a trip to Fountains Abbey to look into what effect Henry VIII had on it during his reign. We will also incorporate some Science through this topic with regards to teeth and digestion. 

In English we will be looking at stories linked to the Tudors. We will be looking closely at The Thief, The Fool and the Big Fat King by Terry Deary. We will also be covering grammar basics.

In Maths we will be looking at fractions. Also looking at decimals, including money. We will be having a big push on times tables this term. All pupils are expected to know all their times tables up to 12. So please try to help your children to learn these at home.

Our RE topic this term is Jesus the Teacher. Here we will look into the life of Jesus and how he went about his mission of teaching the word of God.

 

Things you could do at home

English

  • Please read with your child as regularly as possible, a minimum of 3 times a week. Daily if possible.
  • When reading, check for meaning and understanding.
  • New spellings will be given every Tuesday, for a test on Friday.

 

Maths

  • Practice times tables on a regular basis. Your child should know all their times tables up to 12.

 

I will be asking all children to do a project this term. More information will be given out soon.

 

Any additional work can be done at home for a family point. There are some great treats for 25, 50 and 100 points.

 

Can you make sure your child has full named P.E kit in school at all times? P.E is on Thursday.

 

If you have any questions about the topics we will be covering or want to know what else you could do to support your child then please don’t hesitate to ask.
