What will we be learning about in this half term?

English:

This half term we will be writing non-chronological reports and stories based on our current class novel, 'Charlotte's Web'. We will continue to focus on improving our handwriting, spellings, punctuation and grammar.

Reading:

This half term year 4 will be reading ‘Charlotte's Web’ by E.B White.  This is a lovely book to show people in general that life is both precious and short, and that the moments spent with friends and loved ones are to be cherished.

Maths:

This half term we will be covering the following topics:

* Roman Numerals and Place Value

* Geometry, Position and Direction

* Multiplication and Division

  • *Measures (Area)
  • *Fractions

We will continue to use and apply throughout the half term.

Science:

Human Nutrition

In this topic the children will be studying the Human Digestive System and teeth.  During their learning, the children will be engaged in some awesome practical investigations where they will explore the journey of food in their body. In addition to this, the children will also learn about tooth decay. They will further investigate which liquid does the least damage to an eggshell.

Humanities:

This term in History we will be learning about the Early Lawmakers. 

We will be looking at why we need laws and who thought of them in the first place. This will lead the children to learn about the Magna Carta and why it is so important today.  The children will then go on to learning about the Parliament and holding debates in the role of Monarch, Lords, Baronesses and MPs. Will they be successful in persuading the Monarch to give their assent on a bill?

RE:

In RE we will be learning about Judaism.
