Welcome to the Spring Term
Our Year 4 topics this term are: Energy and the Environment, Forces and The Mayans. (Please see attached overview sheet for more information).
In English we will be analysing a narrative poem called "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes, followed by a science fiction story called "The Windmill" which focuses on a wind turbine being installed on a farm. We shall also look at another book, "The Shawl" which links to our Mayan topic.
Maths this term includes multiplying 3 digits by 1 digit using column multiplication, as well as fractions and decimals. Please continue to help your child learn their times tables in any order, with the emphasis being on rapid recall. (Apps, i-pad games etc. will help with this skill).
Thank you for your support,
The Year 4 Team
