Welcome to year 4! Welcome back to term 3!
In mathematics this term, we will be contonuting our work on mtuliplication and then looking at area and perimter of shapes. Following this, we will begin to look at fractions as we move towards the end of the term into term4.
In English this term we are writing adventure stories based on our class book, Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell. We will be reading the book in class and working on descriptive language, varying sentence lengths as well as how to engage ther reader. Following this, we will be working on writing 'Lonely Planet guide to France' where the children will be writing about what they have found out in their topic.
This term, our topic is, 'Investigate France as a tourist destination.' We will be looking at the geography of France and evaluating why people choose to go there for different types of holidays. We will look at the different land forms such as mountains and rivers as well as the culture that France has to offer. In addition to this, we will be looking at French food and the children will have the chance to try and make some typical French food.
P.E is a statutory part of our curriculum so please ensure your children have P.E kits every other Wednesday (Indoor) and Friday (Outdoor).
Please remember that from 8.45-9.20 children have the opportunity to look at the previous day's learning with an adult if they found it tricky or get a 'pre-teach' on they day's learning if we feel it will help them. They may also have the opportunity to read with an adult, respond to marking or practice those all important times tables. Punctuality is so important! Lastly, if you have any concerns about school or anything in general, please feel free to come for a chat! Mr Shepherd
