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.
As Autumn 2 is such a long term, for the first two weeks we will be concluding our work on 'Ruthless Romans!'
Our focus will then move onto 'Saxon Settlements'. We will learn all about where the Anglo Saxons came from, where they settled and why they settled where they did.
In English, our writing will once again be linked to our topic. We will be writing persuasive texts (including speeches for British Values Day), explanation texts and play scripts. We will be teaching the children to use specific openers and conjunctions, so look out for them using them when talking to you. In addition to this, we will have a new set of spellings for the half term as well as continuing with our bi weekly spelling patterns.
In Maths, we will be working on subtraction and multiplication. Each Maths lesson will begin with a fluency task. We will continue to focus on quick recall of multiplcation facts up to 12x12, number order, number patterns and using known facts to calculate trickier calculations.
In Science, we will be investigating states of matter.
In Computing, the children will be using 'Audacity' to edit music.
In DT we will be creating Roman cooking.
In RE we are preparing for our Christingle service at Hockliffe Street Baptist Church
