A Love of Learning and the Perseverance to Succeed

Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

SPRING 2020
Our connector this half term is...
Life in the Freezer

 

 

 

This topic Life in the Freezer will look at the Polar Regions of the Arctic and Antarctic as well as the changes that are taking place in those areas.

Our classrooms will transform into research centres as we learn the skills needed to become a geographer and scientist.

 

 

 

In  Geography  children will learn to  use maps and atlases  to locate the world’s Polar Regions, do a river study and identify the affects of climate change on our environment and the global implications.

 

 

 

 

 

During Science, we will be learning about the Water Cycle and explaining evaporation, condensation and precipitation

 

 

 

In  English children will be linking their learning to the class reading text - The White Fox by Jackie Morris and write a setting based on Seattle and Alaska.    They will also be learning the skills required to write a persuasive piece of writing linked to saving some of the wildlife affected by climate change, e.g. the Arctic fox and the Polar bear.

 

 

 

For  Maths , our focus this year will be on increasing the children’s abilities in 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 multiplication and division incorporating both informal and formal methods. Also fractions and surface area. The children will be encouraged to work together in groups to solve practical problems.
