This half term
In English, we will begin by writing an adventure story based on a Viking myth.We will then be reading ‘The Water Horse’ by Dick King Smith. We will be writing our own play script for a scene from The Water Horse using stage directions for performance. Our discussions will focus around the differences and similarities between the storybook and play script. We will use our play script to then produce comic strips for the scene we have chosen. Finally, we will write an explanation text about the life cycle of a flowering plant from the perspective of a flower. We shall look at the structure, language and grammar used and we will explore different sentence types.
As part of our Anglo Saxon and Viking topic, we will focus on Vikings for the rest of the summer term. We will be looking at how they raided and invaded Britain, the Viking way of life – how they lived, cooked, cleaned, the jobs they did. We will also be designing and making our own Viking long ships as well as finding out about how the last Anglo-Saxon and Viking kings shaped Britain.
In Maths, we will be exploring equivalent fractions and comparing and ordering fractions. We will also be learning to tell the time accurately with 12 and 24 hour clocks. We will be adding and subtracting length, capacity, mass and money and working out perimeters, Finally, we will be learning all about properties of 2D and 3D shapes, right angles and turns, and finding out about different types of lines (parallel, vertical, horizontal and perpendicular).
In Maths, we will be learning to tell the time accurately and convert 12 and 24 hour clocks. We will be completing a range of problems involving time and relating it to real-life problems. Furthermore, we will be learning about ‘Statistics’ and how to interpret and present data in different ways such as bar charts, pictograms and tables. Finally, Year 4 will be learning all about properties of shapes (quadrilaterals and triangles), angles (obtuse, acute and right angle) and plotting/translating coordinates on a grid.
In Science, we will be finding out all about plants and plant life. We will be identifying and describing functions of different parts of a flowering plant, exploring the requirements of plants for life and growth and how they vary from plant to plant.. We will also be observing and recording plant growth and presenting our findings as well as investigating the way in which water is transported within plants and learning about the life cycle of flowering plants.
