Welcome to Year 4!
In Literacy this half term, we will be learning about and writing our own adventure stories. We are going to be finding out and looking into what makes an adventure story really effective. We are going to be reading the BFG each day and thinking about how Roald Dahl creates an exciting adventure.
We are going to be learning about lots of interesting grammar that will help our writing skill, including; pronouns, fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases!
In maths this half term we will be learning the place value of numbers up to 10,000. We will also be learning how to add and subtract with numbers up to 10,000 using formal written methods such as the column method.
Please keep practising your superhero maths at home – it is amazing to have a fast recall of facts!
Our topic this half term is Giants. In science our key question will be ‘how are sounds made?’ and we will be learning and investigating all about how sounds travel, what they travel through and how they can be changed.
Swimming will continue on Tuesdays and PE will be on Mondays. Please make sure your child has the appropriate kit to do PE outside.
