Year 4 - Maple Tree Class
Welcome to Maple Tree Class,
This summer term we have lots of exciting learning in store for the children.
We are going to be focusing on skills of collaboration and building on the benefits of being back in the classroom to share ideas and learn from one another.
Following the disruption of lockdown, we have some great new initiatives to build children’s knowledge and confidence in English and maths alongside their normal lessons.
In our maths lessons this term we are currently working on decimals then will be moving on to cover topics such as time, money, statistics and geometry. By the end of year 4 there is an expectation, as part of the National Curriculum, that children will know their multiplication tables up to and including the 12 times table as this is key knowledge that will support them throughout mathematics. The children will be taking the national times tables check later this term will be doing lots of practice for this.
In our English lessons, the children’s creative writing is supported by concurrent grammar and spelling input which is linked to the homework set on a weekly basis.
Our topics this term include Brazil and the Amazon Rainforest and looking at plant reproduction. In RS we will be investigating our understanding of The Kingdom of God and exploring the idea of collaboration through Bible Stories.
