Multiplication Tables Check Information (MTC)
Here is the information about the Multiplication Check for Y4 as mentioned in the school newsletter
Here is our long term plan for the year.
States of Matter
During this unit we will:
- Compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases.
- Observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C).
- Identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature.
- Classify materials according to their states. Take children outside to photograph different examples of solids, liquids or gases. E.g. leaf, twig, concrete, metal, puddle and bird - solid (feathers), liquid (blood), gas (air in lungs).
- Research the melting points of chocolate, ice, metals, plastic sand and glass.
- Research the water cycle.
During this unit we will look at:
- Effects of global warming include: melting ice caps, rising sea levels, changes in weather patterns, reduction and extinction of animal species.
- Everyone has the power to slow down the process of global warming by reducing their carbon footprint.
- Know what global warming is and how to protect that planet.
- Pupils should know why it is important to recycle.
- Pupils should know about the potential damage caused by plastic waste.
- Pupils should know why some animals are in danger.
Anglo Saxons and Vikings
During this unit we look at:
- When did they exist?
- Why did they invade?
- What kinds of people were they?
- Were they violent?
What impact did they have on Britain?
- Use evidence to ask questions and find out answers.
- Identify primary and secondary sources of evidence.
- Compare and contrast different forms of evidence.
- Recognise the part that archaeologists may have had in helping us understand more about the past.
Research what life was like for men, women and children using different forms to present my findings.
Remember to read at home at least three times a week and keep practising your times tables on TT Rockstars and spellings on Spelling Shed.
Below is the homework menu for this half term. Have a look at the options. Some might take a few minutes and some might take longer - it's up to you. If you need any resources or you need any of the tasks explaining, please ask your teacher. Remember, some of the tasks might take longer than a week. If you complete them all, ask your teacher for more ideas.
We would love to see how creative you can be and display your hard work for all to see.
Other Useful Information
P.E. days are:
4F - Monday, Thursday and Friday
4C - Monday, Thursday and Friday
Please ensure that your child brings their P.E. kit in on a Monday and keeps it in school until Friday (when it will be sent home for washing etc). This is very important as sometimes timetables may need to be changed and P.E. sessions may be on alternative days.
Indoor Kit = plain white t-shirt, shorts and suitable shoes (pumps or trainers)
Outdoor Kit = tracksuit bottoms and warm jacket and shoes suitable for the outdoors (trainers)
Please remember that no jewellery should be worn and earrings MUST be removed by children before P.E. Long hair also needs to be tied back.
This website has a good range of free games to practise phonics and decoding skills.
This has a good range of games which support your child’s spelling and grammar skills.
This is a fun and competitive way for your child to learn their times tables. Look out for new competitions and challenges. Try to top your class leader board.
