Hello and welcome to Year 4 - Squirrel Class.
Our Class teacher is Mrs Brown (Monday- Wednesday am) and Mrs Franklin (Wednesday Pm- Friday). Mrs Brown and Mrs Franklin teach alternate Wednesday afternoons. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Strawbridge. Mrs Toone is an additional adult who supports us every morning.
Our first topic is 'What makes Britain great?'
In humanities, we are going to be looking at Great Britain.
Maths will focus on number and place value. We will be using a range of resources to look at numbers up to 9999. We will also be revising methods of addition and subtraction including column addition / subtraction, whole part model and bar model (see photos).
In Literacy, we will be enjoying mystery stories and letter writing.
Our RE will be investigating the question, How special is the relationship God has with Jews?
Times tables is a big focus in Year 4.
As you may be aware, children will be taking part in the Multiplication Check in the summer term. Children are expected to know all of the times tables up to x12.
As much practise at home will certainly be beneficial, not only for the purposes of the check, but once children are confident with their times tables, it opens up many possibilities when solving maths problems mentally.
Please continue to enjoy TTRockStars as well as other games available online.
w/c 23rd September
