Welcome to Year 4 at Kestrel Way. Please find below information about your child's learning topics this half term, including learning logs and topic leaflets. Please see our specific class pages for photos and information about each classes individual learning journeys.
This half term our topic is 'Ruthless Romans!'
In English, all our writing will be linked to our topic. We will be writing historical stories and newspaper articles. Our main focus will be on using a range of conjunctions, exciting openings and figurative language to make our writing more interesting. In addition to this, we will be focusing on punctuating our work with accuracy and including our National Curriculum spelling words and our RWI spelling patterns in our work.
In Maths, we will be working on Roman Numerals and Place Value to 1000. Each Maths lesson will begin with a fluency task. We will continue to focus on quick recall of multiplication facts up to 12x12, number order, number patterns and using known facts to calculate trickier calculations.
In Science, we will be investigating teeth and the digestive system.
In Computing, the children will be using 'Scratch' to code a maths game.
In Art, we will be creating Roman Mosaics.
In RE we are learning about how Christians are inspired by the teachings of Jesus.
