Autumn A 2017
We hope you had an exciting summer holiday.
Our connector for this half term is called
'Under the Canopy'
This connector is about life in the rainforest. Children will be learning how to research information and write a short recount .
We will learn about the Yanomami people and how they survive.
In Geography children will learn to use an atlas to locate the world’s tropical rainforests and then label a world map.
Our artistic focus will be using a range of materials to represent the different layers of the rainforest.
In English, we will be writing recounts and non chronological reports.
In maths our focus this year will be on increasing the children’s fluency in the four key operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). Throughout the year they will be developing their understanding of more efficient written and mental methods. By the end of year 4 it is expected that the children will be able to know their times tables up to and including their 12 times table.
This term we will be looking at place value of numbers of up to 4-digits, revising and developing written methods for calculating. The children will be encouraged to work together in groups to solve practical problems.
During Science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats.
We will be visiting London Zoo to enhance the children’s knowledge of animals and their habitats.
