In English we will be focusing on children writing for a range of purposes and audiences planning, drafting and editing their writing. Children will be securing use of dialogue in narratives and be encouraged to select a variety of sentence openers, such as fronted adverbials of time and place or fronted subordinate clauses. We will be focusing our work around the book 'Wind in The Willows' by Kenneth Grahame.
In maths we will be using mathematical fluency and reasoning skills to solve a range of problems. We will also be securing methods to multiply and divide, working with decimals and fractions and finding area of 2D shapes. We will also be practicing our timestables daily working towards the children knowing up to 12 x 12 by the end of year 4.
Year 4 will sit a multiplication test in the summer term.
In Science thoughout this term pupils will be taught to:
- Generate questions and use scientific evidence that is given to answer questions.

Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday, but children should have PE kit in school every day. Please check that all PE kit is clearly labelled.
Every Friday the children will go home with spellings and English homework to be handed in the following Wednesday. There will also be online 'MyMaths' and 'Times Tables Rock Stars' homework for the children to complete.
Children are expected to read their Accelerated Reader books for 20 minutes each day in order to achieve their personal reading targets.
Weekly spellings will be tested on the Wednesdays. We encourage frequent multisensory practise of all spelling homework through a range of strategies like rainbow spelling or spelling aerobics. There is a particular focus on the statutory year 3 and 4 word lists which can be found in the childrens' planners as well as in English books and on displays in class.
