Friendly welcome from year 4
Reading Challenge Books
Welcome to Year 4 Spring 2 term everyone!
Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back, after a term of online learning. We are delighted to be emerging ourselves into the curriculum and have a term of exciting learning ahead.
With reading being a vital part of our school life at HPACP, it is essential that children are reading their reading challenge book every day! This culture is etended to the home, where parents are encouragd to read and share stories with their children and the completion of story maths is critical to consolidate their understanding of the text.
This term, Year 4, will continue to study fractions, starting with adding and subtracting and then going even further to decimal numbers. Children should continue to practise their timetables at home daily in order to become more confident and fluent.
Our term starts off with an amazing book: The butterfly lion by Michael Morpurgo, where children will retell the narrative and create their own innovated versions. Following on from this, children will develop reporting skills and writing newspaper reports about the Great Fire of London and The Gunpowder Plot.
In RE, we will continue to learn about Christianity and examine the story of Easter from the perspective of Mary and Peter Magdalene.
PE will continue to be on both Wednesday& Friday, so please ensure your child has full school PE kit.
In Geography, we are exploring the topic of ‘biomes’ identifying different biomes around the world and exploring aspects of the Taiga biome.
We will focus on the ‘Amazing adventure’- through this topic we will understand the Stuart era.
