English

This term, our writing and reading will be inspired by two books – Varjak Paw and Mary Poppins. We will be reading both of these books in groups, as a class and through role play. 

 

We will develop our literacy skills by writing in many different styles and formats including persuasive letters, news reports, stories, poems, play scripts and non-chronological reports.

We will work on our spelling, grammar and punctuation daily and also improve our reading comprehension through guided reading sessions.

As ever, we advise parents to do as much reading with children at home as possible too. It is also important to try and ask your children questions about their books. 

Spelling

Here are our spellings, the Term 3A folder includes the weekly spellings they recieve every week. Please help your child to practice these every week. 

Mathematics

This Summer term we will also be completing a pilot Year 4 Times Tables Check, so if you could continue to practice their times tables with them in preparation. 

Here is a link for an online check they can practice with you at home-

Our main areas for mathematics this term will include:

  • Improving our knowledge of Place value

       (including numbers with two decimal places)

  • Powers of 10,100 and 1000
  • Written methods of calculation
  • Fractions
  • Mental calculation strategies
  • Statistics
  • Converting units of measure and time

History

During the first half of the spring term our History topic is 'The Romans.' We will learn about how and why the Romans came to Britain. We will discover why they had the most organised and feared army in the Ancient world. We will investigate The Celts, the people who lived in Britania when the Romans invaded. The Roman way of life will also be studied in detail: What they ate, how they kept clean and how they enjoyed themselves.

The Roman topic is also a perfect opportunity for cross-curicular learning. We will create our own Roman artwork including mosaics and clay busts. Work on Roman numerals will compliment our Maths work and we will even learn some Latin and how it links to our spelling and grammar in English today.

In the second half term we will move on to study the Mayans. We will discover the beliefs and lifestyle of this South American civilisation.  

Religious Education

During our Summer term in RE we will be focusing on the 'Mission of The Church', the Early Christians and what it means to be a Christian. We also have a Pentecost Assembly that we will be preparing for.
