Welcome to Year 4!

 

 

In Year 4 the team is Miss Weiner, Miss Clarke, Mrs Speight and Mrs Daniels.

Year 4's Term 5 topic is...

Antarctica 

 

This term's topic is geography and science based as the children will be developing knowledge and skills associated with both subjects. 

 

Using a range of maps, they will describe the location of Antarctica and identify key physical features. They will be researching the importance of the Antarctic Treaty (1959) and learn about Ernest Shackleton's explorations. This learning will then help them to consider the similarities and differences between Antarctica and England and between Villa Las Estrellas and Bristol. 

 

Building on their scientific skills, they will research and classify Antarctic species. They will create a food chain to show the producers, consumers, predators and prey as well as design and build a habitat box for their favourite Antarctic animal. 

 

For more information, please see your emails and the Home Learning 2020 page of the website from Friday 17th April.

 

We look forward to seeing your fantastic home learning on Tapestry!

Please can children bring in their reading record book every Friday.

Please read with your child regularly as it is a great way to develop their reading fluency, vocabulary and comprehension, as well as their writing. We are continuing to use 'VIPERS' for reading comprehension so please do use the question stems provided when reading at home.

 

Children will have weekly spellings to learn and practise at home. These will given out on a Monday and practised in school during the week. The year 3/4 spelling list can be found at the bottom of the page.

 

Please support your child with their times tables at home. This will improve their confidence and enjoyment of maths. By the end of year 4, we would like children to know all their times tables up to x12. 

 

Please do not hesitate to come in if you have any questions.
