This is an exciting year in which the children will be introduced to new topics and new skills. Spelling will be taught every morning. The lessons will cover year 3 spelling rules and words from the Year 3/4 spelling words.
In literacy, we will be reading a range of novels. Our class novels will be The Twits, The SheepPig, The Snowman, Tuesday and Iron Man. We will use these texts as models for our own writing. Punctuation and grammar skills will be taught through the writing of the different texts. We will follow the Maths No Problem programme of work for maths. We will use concrete objects to help us, moving on to the pictorial and abstract approach. Children will receive immediate intervention to address any misconceptions. Reasoning skills will be taught throughout the year. Lessons on an afternoon are dedicated to foundation subjects. Skills will be taught through topics. Our topics this year are Tribal Tales, Tremors, Gods and Mortals, Mighty Metals, Scrumdiddlyumptious and Flow. Children will receive French lessons also. Throughout the year we will be learning about the United Nations Conventions of the Rights of the Child and how we can make sure everyone receives these rights. We will also be learning about British values.
