 Autumn Term Newsletter 2nd Half
Year 4

Welcome back to another dynamic half term in Year 4. As you know we have already had a wonderful trip where the children were able to handle artefacts, giving them a real insight into the lives of Victorian people.  
We are continuing with our Victorian theme up till the end of this term. This  will include English, where we will be working on stories with historical settings, (Climbing in the Dark, by Nick Warburton and A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens).  In Art we are continuing with William Morris print-making and then moving on to Victorian-style silhouettes. In D & T, we will be making Victorian style sewing.
In RE, we will be exploring the Christmas journeys taken by the main Characters in the Nativity story. In music, we are continuing with our Music Express scheme, focusing on composing and following a rhythmic pattern.
In Science we will be looking at keeping warm and the effects of heating and cooling
In Maths, areas of study will include adding several multiples of 10 or 100, Time on analogue and digital, am/pm, recognising fractions and mixed numbers and recalling multiplication and deriving division facts. Please do help your child to learn all of their times tables.
