In spellings, the words we are looking at in class are, those which contain, soft “c”, as in nice, space and decision.

They will be visiting the school library again to see how the different non-fiction books are arranged, as well as selecting one for personal reading.
Its times tables all the way, with activities and challenges. It is also half term assessments for maths. The year 4s will be trying out some focussed times table activities, using their understanding of maths vocabulary and their knowledge of times tables. Learning how to tell time, using an analogue clock and comparing to a digital clock, will reinforce prior knowledge and understanding. Counting from one time to another, to show time past or future, will support calculating word problems.
In topic, the children will be learning more about human geography, including populations and significant cities in England, using maps and grid systems.
In Art, the children have begun to look carefully at human faces exploring how to make different faces, for babies, children and adults.
