Year 4 (Crispin) 2020 - 2021
Year 4 Class Teacher
Dear Parents and Children,
Although not in person, I would like to welcome you all back to online learning this term. I know this isn't the start we had planned, but I look forward to learning and growing with all of you in this time.
With all of the changes taking place, the following is an outline of how the Spring Term should run. However, as we get further along and meet new obsticles, things could change, so please see this as a rough guide for the future.
We are starting off our English unit looking at nonsense poetry. The children will be focusing on the fabulous witty poems of Spike Milligan and by the end of the unit, they should be able to model their own crazy nonsense poems. Following on from this, we will be looking at fairy tales with a twist. This will lead us into writing our own stories linked to famous fairytales.
In maths, we will be working our way through multiplication, division, area, fractions and introducing decimals for the first time. Please make use of our fabulous online resources such as Sumdog and Times Tables Rockstars which I have linked below.
To catch up from the last lockdown, this half term we will be covering a Year 3 unit linked to plants. The unit will cover everything from plant structure to pollination. The children will even be able to take part in growing some seeds at home for a whole class experiment.
In our geography unit this half term, we will be looking at mountains. The children will be looking at how mountains are formed, where they are in the world and what benefits and disadvantages they provide for the people who live in them.
The children showed fabulous undertanding during our motion picture unit and all created wonderful freeze frame animations. This term, we will be focusing on coding and using the Espresso platform to help develop our problem solving skills.
I will be setting weekly activities and challenges for PE this term such as how many ______ can you do in a minute. I will also be enouraging the children to get outside for a walk with an adult as much as possible for fresh air and time away from their screens.
Although this may not have been how this term was planned initially, I know that we can work together to make sure that everyone continues learning and enjoys the Spring Term. If you have any questions please feel free to send me an email or a message through Teams.
