This term we will continue to use Talk4Writing to expand the children's knowledge of text and sentence types. The genres that we will be focusing on are narrative fiction, diary and a balanced argument. There will be an emphasis on developing creative, independent and increasingly sophisticated writing along with the use of a wide range of punctuation marks and vocabulary. We will continue to develop a cursive handwriting style.
In particular the children will develop their use of conjunctions, apostrophes for possession and contraction, expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbial clauses.
This term we will continue to develop our topics through a mastery approach, this will include place value to 10,000, addition and subtraction, perimeter and multiplying and dividing. The children will continue to use ‘Times Table Rockstars’ to develop their fluency. There is daily opportunity for fluency and catch up for children. The children will be developing their explanations and reasoning.

Our topic is ...
Through this topic we will be linking our Geography, History, Art, Design and Technology and English work.
We will explore imaginary world created by famous authors and film-makers and the go on to write about and create our own imaginary worlds through diaries, encyclopaedia entries about imaginary animals and beasts and quest stories set in imaginary lands.
We will discover the history of map making and how the map of the world changed with the discovery of the ‘new world’. The children will explore artists and authors of the sci-fi genre, discuss if their ideas came true and create artwork in their style.
In DT children will be creating an electrical buzzer game to link with their science work on electrical circuits.
Children will also be exploring the locality of Warley Woods, completing walks and planning their routes as well as creating scale maps of their imaginary worlds and looking back through time – imagining what the woods looked like at different points in the past.
The homework each week will be:
Maths Flex - your child will have a maths flex log in, please log in each week to complete the set work which builds on the learning your children have been doing in class.
The children will have spellings within the spelling booklet provided and these will be tested on a Thursday. If you find they have forgotten them, there is always spare copies in the classroom. Just ask the class teacher. There is a copy of these attached, along with ways to learn to spellings at home. (see below)
You can also practise your spellings on 'Spellingframe' using your log in, follow the link here - 'Spellingframe'
. The children have school reading books. Please read with your child at home and record in the reading diary. All children are responsible for changing their own reading book during Guided Reading sessions, story time or first thing in the morning. Reading diaries will be checked by the class teacher on Wednesday, so please ensure your child has their reading record in school.
Swimming will be every Friday. The first class swimming will be leaving at 9.00 prompt so please ensure your child is at school on time.
Please ensure your child has the correct kit with them, a swim cap is a good idea as we do no have any hair drying facilities.
Please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit, these can be brought into school and left in lockers.

Statutory Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)
In June, Year 4 pupils will be required to take the statutory Multiplication Tables Check (MTC). The check is to test if children can fluently recall their times tables up to 12, which is important for fully accessing many areas of the Mathematics curriculum throughout Key Stage 2, and beyond. The MTC is an on-screen check with 25 times tables questions. Children will have six seconds to answer each question. The check should take around five minutes to complete. Children have been practising their times tables on a regular basis with their class teachers using a range of teaching and learning tools such as games, songs and www.ttrockstars.com, which they can also access at home too.
