              Year 4 Newsletter Autumn Term First Half  2016 
 

   
 
Welcome back Year 4. We do hope that you all had a wonderful summer and are ready to come back and learn lots of new and exciting things.
This term in English, we will be reading Roman Myths and Legends, linked to our History topic, writing non-chronological reports and creating images with writing.
For Maths, please see the website for the whole year’s overview. We will be working on our times tables and the inverse operations this year and having weekly tests, so make sure you start practicing!
In Science, we will be exploring and experimenting with different states of matter.
In Geography, we will be improving our map-reading skills, drawing plans from a bird’s eye view, interpreting aerial photos and maps of London, exploring maps on different scales and comparing Roman and Modern day maps. We will also make our own 3D model maps.
In RE, we will be exploring Roman Gods and Goddesses and finding out what their beliefs tell us about Roman life
In Art, the children will be working with Ms Blackborow, our Arts specialist, on a topic linked to History and they are waiting with excitement to discover what they will be doing. Could we ask you to send in any newspaper you may have at home.
In music and ICT, we will be exploring the Garage Band App in order to compose our own orchestral compositions.
For the first part of this term, 4AG will have swimming lessons on Wednesday afternoons for 5 weeks, starting on 14th September. Your child will need a one-piece costume for girls (no bikinis), trunks or mid length swim shorts (not knee-length ones), (Larkswood Pool’s swimming policy) a swimming hat, goggles (optional), a bag for their kit and a towel. Please make sure that they are all clearly labelled as many items can get easily lost. They will also have Multisports on Monday afternoons. 4SG will have their swimming lessons after half term and will be having PE on Mondays (Multisports) and Tuesdays. A PE kit will be needed for these lessons, so please ensure that your child brings in suitable clothing (t-shirt, shorts or leggings and plimsolls or trainers) in a bag to be left in school and again, with labels on all items.
Homework: This will be given out on Fridays to be returned on the following Thursday.
Please ensure that homework is completed every week, neatly and to a high standard. We want all the children to be proud of their work.
Reading Books: Books will only be changed when parents have signed the Home-School Diary to say that the book has been read, shared and discussed.

You are very welcome to speak to us after school. If you feel you need a longer time to talk, please ring the office in advance to arrange an appointment.

Best wishes for a brilliant half term.
The Year 4 Team
