What to Expect in Year Four
This half term Year 4 will be travelling the world and experiencing what food is like in different countries and cultures – we will be looking at artwork created by the Italian artist Guiseppe Archimboldo using fruit and vegetables and studying different countries.
In Literacy we are looking at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We will be exploring the author’s use of language and using high level skills to create our own descriptive pieces of writing. We will also be looking at advertisements and creating persuasive pieces of writing. Towards the final weeks of the half term, we will be analysing different forms of poetry.
In Numeracy we will be looking at both multiplication and division as well as understanding perimeter. We will be continuing our mastery approach by using concrete resources before moving onto pictorial and abstract methods.
In Science we are learning all about Animals including Humans. We will be investigating how liquids damage our teeth and the journey of our food through the digestive system!
