This year 4LP will be learning through a range of exciting topics, that will encourage their natural curiosity and develop their knowledge. 

Pupils will be reading class novels, starting with Charlotte’s Web in the first half term. Using these stories, new reading and writing skills will be taught. Children will get to explore a range of texts through independent reading activities and the use of accelerated reader. Writing skills such as speech, conjunctions and fronted adverbials will be applied to a number of different genres.

Through the use of Maths - No Problem! pupils will be working with numbers up to 10,000. Topics include place value, addition and subtraction and fractions. There will ample opportunity for children to apply their skills to reasoning problems, where they will focus on their explanations. This focus will begin immediately in order for the children to become accustomed to these question types. 

In topic, 4LP will be covering topics such as Misty Mountain, I am Warrior and Potions. The first half term will begin with Burps, Bottoms and Bile, where the class will focus on the digestive systems of different animals. We will also learn all about the different types of teeth we have and the importance of looking after the.  The children will also have the opportunity to explore and sample a range of healthy foods.

As well as this, 4LP will be going swimming in the Autumn term every Tuesday afternoon to the Aquatic Centre. They will need a swimming costume and towel each week.
