Welcome to the home page for 4T and Mrs Tait
(Please see bottom of page for important homework and P.E. information)
We have many exciting learning opportunities planned for Autumn term, 2019.
Here's what we have in store for Autumn One!
This term we will be reading Beowolf. The children will be scrutinising story settings, character development, dialogue and narrative style. Writing will include: dramatisation, considering points-of-view and writing a diary entry. Grammar will include: sentence structure, new vocabulary, complex sentences, relative clauses and elaboration. We will also look at non-chronological reports and design our own fact files based on independent research about the Anglo-Saxons.
In our R.E. lessons we will be focusing on understanding the Gospel values; learning about The Creation, and reading and understanding the story of Abraham to Joseph. We will also be doing some work around the different charitable organisations across the world.
In Maths, will be extending our learning in place value, negative numbers through zero, rounding, and, written methods for addition and subtraction.
In Science, we will be learning about sound: identifying how sounds are made, recognising what causes vibrations, and finding patterns in the pitch of a sound and what created it.
In year 4 we will be learning about a region in the UK, which will be East Anglia. We are looking forward to seeing how this differs from other regions across the world!
In history, the children will be learning about some exciting Anglo-Saxon facts! Their invasions, how they lived their lives, their art and culture and their religion.
Please ensure your child has a full kit in school every day, we like to fit in extra sessions when we can!
Indoor kit: Blue shorts, white t-shirt with school logo and black pumps.
Outdoor kit: Blue tracksuit/jogging bottoms and trainers.
All clothing and footwear should be clearly named. All jewellery must be removed for P.E. and long hair must be tied back.
