Dear Parents

We have put together a pack of activities to support your child while we are not at school. Included in the pack are:

Maths

A maths activity book that covers general number tasks.

A times table practice booklet

As we have been working hard for the X table National Test in May could they also use the times table Rockstars Program to keep their speed and accuracy

They can also use Mathletics for maintenance of their skills

English

Please ensure you hear read daily and then comment using the prompt sheet in the front of the reading record

A English activity book

A Think Aloud comprehension sheet

RE

As Holy week is approaching, create an interesting way of presenting the events that take us to Easter Sunday. This could be in a diary storyboard, a poem, a piece of art or a 3d model.

History/Geography

Find out about an aspect of Mayan life we have not covered in class and create a research page on it.

Find out about how the Spanish invaded and the impact of their invasion on the Mayan civilization.

About Our Year Group

Welcome to Year 4.  There are two classes: 

Class I - Miss Donnelly

Class J - Mrs Whitewood

Support Staff:  Mrs Perrin, Mrs Amis and Mrs Clarke

 

Welcome to Year 4!

In the Autumn term our topic work will focus on the Romans. We will be visiting the Roman amphitheatre and Roman gallery in London and will also be spending a day 'being a Roman'! The children will learn about who the Romans were, why they came here and what changes they brought to this country. The work will be completed through class discussion, independent study and research. Our art and D.T work this term will be linked to the topic, including making Roman Coins and creating Roman mosaics. In English and Maths we will be following the topic set out in the National Curriculum (see subject areas for plans). The children will be spending their P.E time improving the important life skill of swimming.

After Christmas our topic focus moves to the Ancient Maya and Mexico. We will have a special Maya visitor and will experience the tastes, sounds and sights of Mexico. Our Art and D.T work this term will be linked to the topic, including making Maya headdresses and death masks as well as creating some traditional Maya chocolate with surprising ingredients. In English the children will be covering the National Curriculum objectives while studying Holes by Louis Sacher and Desert Trip by Barbara Steiner, both set in desert climates but with very contrasting stories. In Maths we will be following the topics set out in the National Curriculum. The children will be splitting their P.E time between liturgical dance and outdoor invasion games.
