Welcome to Curlews Class
This half term we have settled the children in, focussing on regrouping and establishing routines and attitudes towards learning whilst also recognising the need to re-socialise the class.
We will continue this half term with the topic "How To Train Your Dragon" which looks into the settlement of the Saxons and the invasion of the Vikings. Through this exciting history based topic we will look into how evidence informs our understanding of what has happen in the past. It will also link back to the work that we did last term on 'settlers'.
English and Reading
We will use the book by Cressida Cowell and follow the adventures of Hiccup! We will also use Hortense and the Shadow by Lauren Natalia O'Hara. This will then become the source of inspiration for writing. Writing will be a real focus this half term, with a focus on grammar skills, terminology and sentence construction.
We will continue to use 'White Rose' as our learning scheme and much of the resources for this can be found online if you want to follow what we are doing and support your child at home. I've added the yearly overview to the bottom of this page. We will start by looking at decimals and making the link from fractions into decimals (tenths and hundredths) We will then look at dividing whole numbers by 10 and 100 and how that creates decimals.
We will continue to have Miss Kee for one of our PE sessions and Mrs Kandes for our Wild Tribe and MFL lessons. These lesson will happen every other Friday and the children will need to come to school in PE kits with their legs covered and some wellies or outdoor shoes.
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with any of the Year 4 team.
