Autumn Term 2018

RE

This half term, in RE, Year 4 will have studied the stories of ‘The Old Testament’ from Abraham to Joseph. We have also focused upon the story of Jesus in the temple, learning about the Jewish faith and the synagogue (which we will be visiting; hopefully, in November 2018). We have also studied a number of prayers including the Shema, The Our Father, The Gloria and the Rosary.

Literacy

In literacy this term, we have been studying the children’s version of Treasure Island. This has inspired our work and enabled us to work on a wide range of sentence structures, punctuation and as well as ambitious vocabulary.

Numeracy

In numeracy we have been focusing on place value and the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children have been working with concrete apparatus to help them complete the calculations as well as problem solving / reasoning tasks.

Science

Year 4 are… electric!

Topic

Year 4 will be applying their topic knowledge of hills and mountains, practically, to Bredon Hill. The children made potato mountains in class to show the contour lines and features upon it. They will then take this knowledge to Bredon Hill, where they use OS maps and observations of a compass to navigate their way to the summit.
