Autumn 1 Spelling list
We are starting off the Autumn term in English looking at fictional stories. Our Book is 'Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters' by John Steptoe. This is an African tale, with lots of interesting vocabulary. We are looking at the descriptions of both people and settings. We want the children to be inspired to use the vocabulary in their own way and to develop their ability to describe when writing. The story also sends a message with the need for generosity.
Here is a link for you to listen to the story:
In our Maths lessons this term we are focusing on Place Value. We will be learning about how to round to the nearest 10 and 100 and 1,000. Furthermore, there will be a focus on comparing 4 digit numbers up to 10,000. In Year 4, it is important to continue with our times tables revision, we do this on our TT Rockstars account or by singing and dancing on BBC Supermovers. Here are the links to practice at home:
This term in Science our topic is 'Teeth and Eating'. The children will learn about digestion and different types of teeth, before moving on to explore deadly predators and their prey, in their exploration of food chains.
'The America' is this term's topic and the question that we will be asking ourselves is can you come on a Great American Road Trip?. We want the children to be able to locate the world's countries using maps, including North and South America.
Through our RE lessons our children will be looking at some different Gospel stories and studying some of the key figures in Jesus' family, such as the disciples and Joseph.
