Maths

This half term we will be continuing to learn decimals before moving on to money and time. Please continue the good work with multiplication, which is especially important as we get very close to the national times tables tests in June. It is of particular importance for children to practise TTRockstars regularly, especially the soundchecks which reflect the tests

The overviews and lessons follow the White Rose Maths plans closely.

Reading & Writing

This half term in English we will be reading  ‘Rose Blanche’ by Robert

Innocenti and Ian McEwan. We will be writing letters and also creating

our own narrative based on the book.

Geography

In Geography we will be looking at the locations of the countries involved in WWII.

History

We will be looking at the impact of the war on people’s lives.

Science

In science, Year 4 will be learning about living things and their habitats, discovering how to group and classify different species in the local and wider environment.

Homework will be weekly, set on a Friday and completed on https://www.mymaths.co.uk/. Spellings will be on seesaw. Home readers should be returned on a Thursday so that new books can be handed out on a Friday.

On a Friday afternoon, in class, we will be doing a Kahoot quiz based on the previous week's learning. The quiz will then be placed on seesaw for the children to attempt at home.
