Welcome to Year 4
Next half term we will continue with our topic 'White Water Adventure' and our focus will be on Design and Technology - investigating, designing and building bridges and researching the artist Claude Monet and his works. The children will use his style to help them recreate their own works of art using water colours. Maths will continue to build on the key skills and develop their knowledge of multiplication and divisions, both for their times tables and written methods. In English, we will be looking a the picture book 'Flood' and using this as a stimulus for our writing. Our class text will be 'Alice in Wonderland' and we are looking forward to exploring this together!
Year 4 have had a brilliant first half-term. They have completed some super learning across all areas of the curriculum. Maths has had a focus on place value and exploring the formal column methods for addition and subtraction. In English, they have been reading the 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' which they are loving. We have explored letters and setting descriptions. Our Topic 'White Water Adventure’ is well underway. We have been out on a Geography fieldtrip to the local stream to collect information. The Year 4 children have also enjoyed French this half term, comparing the city of Coventry with Nice in France.
