To love, learn and grow together

Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

The second part of the Autumn term has started with lots of enthusiasm and learning in Year 4. Our values this term are love and generosity. We will be looking at what this means especially at Christmas time. We continue with our topic Earth, Wind and Fire until the end of term. Our next text is the Philip Pullman classic, the Firemaker’s Daughter. In the story, a young girl called Lila wants to become a firework-maker, like her father Lalchand. Our writing will focus on narratives, persuasive texts, summarising information and reports. Our grammar focus will be on using applying tenses and apostrophes correctly and speech – both direct and indirect. Focus in spellings will be on prefixes and statutory year 4 words. Our geography focus this half term is to understand the structure of the Earth and understand how volcanoes and earthquakes are formed. In Science it’s all about light. We will investigate why we need light, how shadows are formed and what happens when light reflects off reflective surfaces.
