Welcome to Class 4!

 

Literacy

This half term our literacy will be linked with our topic work. We will write setting descriptions based on the book "Stone Age Boy". Children will predict what is going to happen based on their knowledge of the Stone Age so far and then write setting descriptions. Later on in the half term, we will write instructions based on the book 'How to wash a body mammoth' again using further knowledge of the Stone Age.

Numeracy

This year there will be a huge focus on mental maths, including number bonds up to and within 100 and times tables. By the end of Year 4, children are expected to know all times tables up to 12x12 so any support you can give your child so they practise their times tabkes will be much appreciated. We will be looking at Place Value up to 4-digit numbers, addition, subtraction and inverse using the column method and bar model.
