Year 4 Class Blog

    Year 4 class blog!

Class 4s topic this term is Around the World in 80 days, based on the book by Jules Verne.  Our main focus is Geography – locating continents, countries and main cities across the world.  We will also be learning about some of the extreme environments in the world and also the traditions in different countries.  We are hoping to make some structures and look at the science behind volcanoes and earthquakes.  Our writing will also be topic based.

Our main focus this half term in Literacy is to learn the Year 3/4 spellings (these have been sent home) and to apply them to writing.  We are also focusing on the structure of sentences – using fronted adverbials effectively and subordinate clauses.

In Numeracy this half term, the children will be learning about place value, negative numbers, decimals – including money, rounding and measurements of length.

Swimming will take place every Tuesday so children will need a swimming kit and PE will be on Fridays as usual.  Swimming will carry on up to Christmas.

Homework is given out on Wednesdays and should be handed in the following Monday.
