Year 4 Autumn Newsletter

Term 1

What an exciting term we have planned! Our first topic this year is titled 'Yabadabadoo' so we will be learning all about from the Stone Age to the Iron Age and creating our own settlements. What do you know about the Stone Age? What was it like to live then?

We will also be investigating electrical circuits, exploring Islam and learning the history of animation in computing.

Reading is a vital part of your child's curriculum. Please make sure your child is reading regularly and that you have written in your child's reading record.

Keep checking for updates and photos of our learning this term.

4C have been identifying, representing and estimating numbers in practical ways this week. We chalked number lines on the playground when estimating water capacity, represented numbers pictorially on place value grids with counters and discussed how to make sensible estimates for measurement in real life situations.   


We have been busy researching our topic of the Stone Age. In groups we found facts about each of the three eras - Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic.
