Y4 have had a fantastic start to the year with all the children settling in well.
This half term, our topic is focused on Prehistory; looking at how people lived in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We are finding out what life was like, where people lived, the tools and materials they used, and the food they ate. We are exploring this with cross-curricular work through a number of our foundation subjects. In Art, we are looking at cave art and Stonehenge. In P.E. the children will be dancing using music and movement inspired by the Stone Age, and we are using the book ‘Stone Age Boy’ in English as a basis for our writing. We are also looking forward to enriching our understanding of the Stone Age with our visit to Creswell Crags.
Our focus this term in maths is place value. We are exploring numbers up to 10,000 and looking at representing them in different ways. Additionally, we are using different games and activities to practice our recall of times tables. Our target is to learn these off by heart so remember to practise at home. More information about learning times tables can we found in the letter below.
