Welcome to Beaver Class
- PE will be on Tuesdays, so make sure that your child brings their PE kit
- Independent Reading will be on Fridays and children can bring their own books from home
- We will be making lighthouses in DT - so please begin to save material that you would like to use in your project (toilet paper rolls, cardboard boxes, yogurt pots, etc.)
Welcome to Beaver class in Year 4 - I hope you all had a great break and are looking forward to start the school year as I am! We will be beginning by reading and completing some writing stories based on the book 'The Fox and the Star' by Caroline Bickford Smith.
In Maths, we will be starting our unit on place value. Currently in year 4, we will be learning values of four-digit numbers (thousands, hundreds, tens and ones). The children will be ordering, partitioning and rounding numbers and looking at negative numbers too. We will also be practising our times tables every day so that the children know all the way up to 12x12 by the end of the year. Continue to practise these at home starting off with the 6 times tables!
In guided reading, we will be reading a book called 'The Series of Unfortunate Events' written by Lemony Snicket. The novel tells the story of three children, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire, who become orphans following a fire and are sent to live with Count Olaf, who attempts to steal their inheritance and these orphans face as told - a series of unfortunate events!
In Geography, we will be learning about “our place in Europe”. This will involve learning European country names, areas and capital cities - you can support your child’s learning at home by having conversations about where you live (continent, country, city and town) as well as different friends and family members that may live elsewhere and finding European countries and what their flags look like!
In science, we will be learning all about electricity and making electrical circuits. This will lead into our DT unit where we will be making our very own lighthouses that light up! You might want to start saving material that you would like to use in your project (toilet paper rolls, cardboard boxes, yogurt pots, etc.)
I look forward to starting school and welcoming you all to Beaver class and I hope you enjoy your first term! Please check this class page for any updates and to check out the learning we are getting up to!
