Welcome to Class 4!



In Literacy this half term we will be focusing on different styles of writing based on the snowman. We will create speech for the book, write setting descriptions and letters. This will be linked to our topic work ‘It’s cold down here’.




In maths we will be completing our unit on subtraction including solving problems. We will also use bar models to increase our understanding of addition, subtraction and inverse. We will then move on to measurement and conversions for cm/m/km. It would be very helpful for your child if they are estimating the length of a variety of household objects and then measuring them.


Our exciting topic this half-term is ‘It’s cold down here’. We will be learning about Antarctica from a geography point of view to understand where it is in relation to us and comparing the environment. As part of our history, we will look at famous explorers and their expeditions. Through this we will be doing some diary writing and newspaper reports. 


PE is first thing on a Monday with Nathan, where the children will learn a variety of skills. Please ensure children have the correct kit in school including trainers/pumps.

We will continue to go swimming on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure all children have the correct kit including swimming caps. 


Children are given maths and English homework on a Friday which is due the following Tuesday.

Spellings are given weekly on a Friday and are due before the following Friday. Children are tested on these spellings so please ensure they are learning these at home.

Children will receive a project linked to our topic work at the beginning of the half-term which is due before the end of the half-term.
