Year 4 Team
English in Year 4 will begin by looking at fiction through The Spiderwick Chronicles. We will use the book as tool to engage the children and discover the authors writing style. The non-fiction topic in English will cover the Shang Dynasty and lead to the children creating a non-chronological report.
During the first half term the children will be taught the key aspects of place value, addition and subtraction. This will move on to multiplication and division after half term. We will use a wide range of puzzles and problems to deepen the children’s understanding of number.
Science will look at healthy eating and teeth. The children will learn about the digestive system, food groups, human and animal teeth and the effects of drinks on our teeth.
Our topic this term is all about the Egyptians and we will be investigating all about how the Egyptians used mummification to preserve the dead, the Egyptian Gods, how the tomb of Tutankhamen was discovered and how the decoding of the Rosetta Stone led to Hieroglyphics being translated.
Some of the children in Year 4 using Base 10 equipment to help them understand the value of each digit within 4-digit numbers.
We have been learning how to add 3-digit numbers together using the formal written method of column addition.
Year 4 children have been creating their own 2 step word problems.
