This term (Summer 2) our Global Theme is 'Our heritage'.
We will learn how our heritage is important in the wider world. We will think about ways in which we value and preserve our heritage.
Our big History question is 'Why is our local pub called Nigel Gresley?'. The children will be learning about the history of the railways in our local environment. We will be linking this with our class text 'The Railway Children'.
Our Science unit is electricity. We will be asking ourselves the question 'How do the lights work?' In design and technology we will be using our science knowledge to make circuits to make lights turn on and off.
Please see the science knowledge organiser below.
Below are a list of Year 4 spellings that we will focus on each week. The children will be given their new spellings on a Friday and will be given a dictation to write to show they have understood the spelling pattern the following Friday.
This term our topics are Time, Shape, Statistics and Position and Direction.
- We will convert between analogue and digital times and convert to and from the 24hr clock.
- We will identify angles and lines of symmetry
- We will interpret charts and line graphs
- We will plot coordinates and describe translation on a grid
Below is an example of some of the reasoning and problem solving work we will do linked to Time.
TT Rockstars is a fantastic and fun way for your child to practise their times tables. They will be set the times tables they currently need to practise to help them to become secure with each table and improve their speed.
We have a display in the classroom where the children can move their names up as they achieve a new rock status. Playing in 'Studio' will reward them with a higher rock status!
In the Summer Term Year 4 children nationally take part in a times tables test. They are expected to know all their times tables up to 12x12 and be able to answer every question in under 6 seconds. Playing TTRS in 'Soundcheck' is a very good example of what the test will be like. Below is a document with more information for parents.
