This term we are exploring the Tale of Beowulf retold by Michael Morpurgo. We will look at the legend and the mythical characters as well as retelling the tale in our own words. We will write a mix of non-fiction and fiction texts to develop our writing styles.

In Guided Reading, we will be reading extracts of different stories, plays and poetry and looking at the different features of the texts. This will help the children see a wide range of different reading styles so they can find the one they love the most!

Please remember to keep reading at home - at least 10 minutes a day! - and signing your diary. This is vital for you to keep developing your reading skills and improving each day!

Remember, we draw our reading raffle every Friday. Every time you read in the week, you will get 1 ticket - you've got to be in it, to win it!



We will be looking at Fractions and Decimals this half term, and using different methods to convert between the two. We will then look at the wider areas of Maths including Money, Time, Shape and Statistics.

Next term, we will be taking the Government Multiplication Check which is compulsory for all Year 4 children across the country. It is an online check, where the children get 25 random questions focussing on all the timestables (with the majority being based around the 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x and 12x tables).

The test is purely for a record of where the children are up to and to help make sure their timetable knowledge is secure for Upper Key Stage 2. The children have to get 25/25 to pass so we will be focussing on getting our rapid recall up this half term.

We will be doing TimesTables Rockstars multiple times a week and the children will bring home booklets to keep practising over the weekends. All the support you can offer is appreciated and can help the children reach their goals!

This term we will be exploring Electricity and how it can be controlled. We will look at how different types of electricity are used and what appliances we have in our everyday lives that use electricity. The children will even explore how they can safely control static electricity themselves.

We will also be exploring Animals including Humans and the similarities between human and animal digestive systems. We will even explore their skeletons!

As usual, we will continue to take part in STEM activities linked to our Science topics and explore the world as engineers and designers!

Our new theme for this term is 'The Vikings'. This links to our History topic where the children will explore 'The Vikings - Ruthless Killers or Peaceful Settlers'.

We will look at where the Vikings sit on the historical timeline and where in the world they originated from. We will explore what they looked like, what they used for transport and how they lived their daily lives.

I can't wait to see what we discover!
