Welcome to the Summer Term
Our Year 4 topics this term are: Space and the Romans. (Please see attached overview sheet for more information).
In English we are looking at biographies and learning to write about famous people such as Sally Ride, the first American woman in space and Galileo Galilei. In addition we will be analysing a quest story called "Legend of the lost keys."
In Maths the children will be ordering and comparing decimals and looking at money, which will involve totalling and finding change. We will also be revisiting abstract concepts such as telling the time, so it would be helpful if you could practice using digital and analogue clocks at home as we will be focusing on using the 24 hour clock in school. The children will also be doing a lot more times table work in class in anticipation of their formal test in May/June.
Thank you for your continued support,
The Year 4 Team
