This term our class text is Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. We will be writing additional chapters for the book, writing persuasive letters to Mr Zuckerman and recounts in the role of Fern.
We will be focussing on learning the capital cities of countries in Europe and finding out about their landmarks. After half term we will be learning about the Victorians and the changes to the railways over time. In Science we will be learning about plants and in Art we will be finding out more about the Impressionism movement and recreating our own versions of pieces by Degas and Cezanne. In PE we will be learning hockey and basketball skills and will start to apply these skills in a game.
Times Table Rockstars
By the end of Year 4 the children are expected to know the times tables up to 12x12 automatically, without having to count up in the multiples. The government have introduced a times tables check to monitor this at the end of Year 4 which will be starting at the end of this school year. Times Table Rockstars is a fantastic way for children to practise their multiplication facts at speed which we will be using in school several times a week. Further practice at home will help to support this – please see the previous letter for more information.
