Year 4 (Crispin) 2020 - 2021

Miss Hendry

Year 4 Class Teacher

Dear Parents and Children,

Welcome back to your final term in Year 4! 

Please see an outline of what we will be looking at this term below. Due to the turbulent year that we have experienced, there may be changes in the information to fill in any gaps that we meet on our journey.  

English

We are starting off looking at plays this half term. This will involve a lot of speaking and listening as well as learning new layouts for the writing style. We will continue to have a strong focus on reading and I will be encouraging the children to continue this at home with a minimum of 15 minutes five times per week. 

Maths

In maths, we will be working our way through decimals, time, money, statistics and shape. There will still be a strong underlying focus on the four key operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and we would be grateful of your support at home in helping the children learn and recall their times table facts. Please make use of our fabulous online resources such as Sumdog and Times Tables Rockstars which I have linked below.  

Science

During the first half term, we will be looking at electricity and moving forward into the second half of the term we will be focusing on animals including humans. Our electricity unit should be a fun and safe way for the children to learn all about how our homes work and why we need to be careful around electrical devices. 

Topic

We have a wonderful term filled with history this summer. To start with we will be focusing on WW2 and after the half term, we will step further back in time to look at the wonders of Ancient Egypt. 

Computing

As always, we will be starting the term with internet safety. We will be checking in with how the children feel about being online and recalling how we can prevent risks and what to do if we come across something that makes us feel uncomfortable. We will also be looking at using Scratch to help develop our knowledge of coding. 

PE

We have an action packed term of sport including netball, tag rugby, tennis and athletics. We will also be dropping into other sports along the way such as cricket and rounders. We have PE on a Monday and Thursday, but please make sure that children are always wearing sensible footwear as we regularly take active movement breaks. 

 

I am super excited to get stuck into this term and I know that the children are going to absolutely love it! As always, if you have any problems or questions, please feel free to send me an email at lhendry@pippins.slough.sch.uk or call the school office to make an appointment.  

Best wishes,

Miss Hendry
