Welcome to Year 4!
SPRING 2 - ROWDY ROMANS
In literacy this half term we will be looking at and writing our own non-chronological reports.
We are going to be analysing different examples and using them to research what makes a non-chronological report successful.
We are going to be looking at lots of grammar including; subordinating conjunctions, using commas, subheadings and how to use a formal tone.
In maths we will be carrying on with multiplication and division, looking at multiplying and dividing 3 digit numbers. After this, we will be moving onto time and roman numerals.
We continue to do superhero maths every week so make sure you are practising at home to become the best superhero!
We have also started to do Times Tables Rockstars where we test up to the 12x12 times tables every week. By practising your times tables you can work your way up to being a ROCK HERO!
During this half-term it is SCIENCE WEEK! Therefore this half term we will be carrying out lots of fun and exciting investigations and outstanding oaks will even be designing their own experiment!
Our topic this term is all about Ancient Rome!
We will be finding out all about the emperors, Gods, gladiators, lifestyle and much more (we even have a very special visitor coming in!)
In our geography lessons we will be learning about the trade links and how they affect our lives.
In our design and technology we will be designing and making a helmet fit for a roman gladiator.
In PE this half term we will be playing lots of target games whilst learning the two skills; balancing in front support and small base balance. Please remember your kits every Monday
Just a reminder - Homework is given out every Friday and we expect it returned by the following Thursday!
