Term 1 Learning
Our English learning this term will be focused around the book 'Star in the jar' by Sam Hay and Sarah Massini.
We will use this story to provide us with lots of writing opportunities. We will be focusing on expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials, figurative language and a variety of sentences.
We will continue to work on our inference and retrieval skills whilst reading our class book 'Electrigirl' by Jo Cotterill.
This term, we will looking at place value, number and addition.

How can you help at home?
Reading: We ask that you read' with your child 5 times a week. This only needs to be a 10 minute session and you don’t have to finish a whole book every time. We will be continuing with our ‘Reading Challenge’, so make sure you record each read in their log book as this will contribute.
Reading does not have to be limited to the books children bring home from school. It can include any books they have at home, reads with siblings or reading books from the local library.
Spelling: Children will be given a list of spellings termly. These will be included in a weekly dictation. These spellings and the dictation will be in their homework book. Spellings will be set and the dictation completed every Friday.
The children will be continuing with maths planets. There are sample papers on the maths page on the website to give you an idea of what each stage will look like. Please practise your child’s maths facts at least 3 times a week. If your child is stuck on a level for more than 4 weeks then we will intervene at school.
Alongside these please continue to practise times table facts. Each Friday we will complete a times table challenge in class, so that by the end of Year 4 the children are able to recall all their times table facts up to 12 x 12.
In Year 4, children need to be able to read digital and analogue 24 hour time. Continual practice of this at home will hugely support their learning in class.
