In Year 4, Ms Candlish is the class teacher and we are supported by the brilliant Mrs Garrard and marvellous Miss Sloan. The class is taught on Tuesdays by fabulous Mrs Lunn.
Our PE days this term are Wednesday and Thursday. Please come to school wearing your kit on these days.
Our topic for term 1 is Interconnected World, in which we'll learn about compass points and four and six-figure grid references. We'll learn about the tropics and the countries, climates and culture of North and South America. Then we'll move on to identify physical features in the United Kingdom and learn about the National Rail and canal networks.
Please find the unit knowledge organiser below.
The topic will also flow through our wider curriculum as we explore:
For more information about each topic you can find the knowledge organisers below.
Our class novel is How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell.
In Maths, we will continue to follow the White Rose scheme. In terms 1 and 2 we will be covering the following areas.
If you wish to follow White Rose at home, you can see the yearly overview, small steps and individual lesson resources here.
In addition to daily reading, spelling and times tables practise, your child will bring home one piece of work that will support their learning across the curriculum. This will be set on a Wednesday to be returned each Monday.
