This term promises to be even more exciting than the last! A few things to look forward to across the wider Spring term include our class Assembly on Friday 8th March and of course our Easter production!
Below are some of the topics we will be covering across the curriculum this term.
In year 4 we set the following homework:
Wednesday - Spelling homework - Yellow folder
The children take home their weekly spelling words and activity sheets. We ask that the children learn their new spelling words and complete any unfinished activity sheets in time for the spelling test which takes place on the following Wednesday.
Friday - English homework - Green folder
Each week English homework is set which relates to work completed in class throughout the week. English homework is due in the following Tuesday.
Friday – Maths homework -Red folder
Each week Maths homework is set either in the form of a computer based activity or paper based questions (when relevant both will be set). Maths homework is due to be handed in on the following Tuesday.
The PE days for this term are as follows:
Tuesday - Indoor PE
Friday - Outdoor PE
From time to time we have the opportunity to take part in additional sporting activities and so it is advised that the children bring their PE kit in on Monday and take it home on Friday for cleaning.
Topic this term:
Literacy: 'The Bogey Men and the Trolls Next Door.' In the first half term we will be exploring narrative verse and the language that helps to form this. We will be using drama and discussion to extend our knowledge.
We will also be learning about explanation texts and the children will use their knowledge from Geography to write about volcanoes and earthquakes.
Maths: Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; fractions and decimals; properties of shape; geometry; Problem solving and number work.
PE: Team Building Games and Tag Rugby
PSHE: Dreams and Goals
Music: This term, the children will learn how to play the Glockenspiel.

Art and DT: Landscapes, using water colours. Later in the term, the children will use their skills to design and make musical instruments in connection with the Science theme of sound.
French: Quelle Heure Est-Il? (Telling the Time)

All tasks will be saved on the Purple Mash site for children to follow up at home.
