Welcome to Year 4
Spring term has started with a period of home learning so the Ganges Google classroom is up and running with tasks posted daily. This includes daily Maths and English and then a variety of other activities (Topic, Art, French, PE, Djembe, Forest School). Home learning packs are available from school if access to Google classroom is difficult.
This term our topic is Ancient Greeks. This looks at the history of Ancient Greece including Greek mythology, Greek Gods, daily life in Ancient Greece, Athens and Sparta and the legacy of Ancient Greece.
Later in the term we will be covering a mini topic about sound.
In Maths we will be continuing to develop multiplication and division skills. Year 4 times table targets are 6, 7 and 9 times tables. We will also go on this term to learn about fractions and decimals. In English we will be reading Greek myths and Aesop’s fables followed by writing our own Greek myths. We will also be developing writing skills using complex sentences and introducing a variety of grammatical concepts. Creative writing is encouraged through frequent free writing opportunities.
