Hi, we are class 4

 

These are the things we will be covering this term:

 

In Literacy we will be covering:

Explanation texts – We will be writing how a machine works! Journalistic writing, poetry and recounts of the life of a famous person.

 

In Numeracy we will be covering:

Division, fractions, shape, time, capacity and volume and measure.

 

For our topic based learning we will be focusing on famous people of the past such as George Stephenson, Grace Darling and Alexander Graham Bell.

 

Science is made up of topics such as the Human body and eating healthy. Forces and motion, Electricity and Light and sound.

 

You could help at home by:

 

Looking at our Twitter account! We will be posting our ‘Steps of the week’ each Monday for Maths so you can help us by revising these with us at home.

 

Helping us learn our 2,3,5 and 10 times tables. We need to know these by the end of the year!

 

Reading with us each night. We can read newspapers, books, poems and become familiar with the type of texts we will be learning about.

 

Practising telling the time with us. We are working hard to tell half past, quarter past and quarter to and also to be able to calculate differences in time. E.g. how long a TV show lasts or how long a journey takes.

 

Helping us to research the famous people that we are learning about. The internet has so much information we can choose from and maybe a visit to the library could help us too!

 

Our PE day is Monday

Homework goes home each Friday and we get Maths and spellings. We also sometimes get a reading comprehension.

Homework has to be returned by Thursday of the following week and we are tested on Friday.
