Spring term

This term, our learning will be taking on astronomical proportions as we learn all about Earth and Space! Children will be superstars as they learn all about planets, our solar system, and the movement of the Earth and moon!

As writers, we will create informative reports all about space that will be out of this world! We will also read the ‘Moon Man’, which will inspire us to write diary entries and take part in a debate. Finally, we’ll master speech punctuation as we write in a narrative style, looking at the text ‘The King of Space!’

In reading lessons, we will read some fantastic books, including ‘Dear Olly’ and ‘How Kirsty Jenkins Stole the Elephant’, alongside some super class reads which we will choose as a class.

With the multiplication check coming up in the Summer term, our number skills learning will continue to focus on times tables with weekly homework being set on TT rockstars. Please watch the videos on the maths section of the website if you’d like more information about how to support your child on TT rockstars. In maths lessons, we’ll continue to focus on the most important knowledge that children need in order to blast off as excellent mathematicians! We will focus on written methods for multiplication and division.

In our DT learning, children will have the opportunity to design and create their own biscuits. Art will focus on art and design skills building on their learning from year 3.

We will continue to have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please send children to school in their PE kits.

Homework is set on a Friday and should be completed by the following Friday.

We can’t wait to get started on our learning this term, the children are going to rock-et!

  • Year 4 will have PE every Thursday and Friday.

  • At The Oaks, we expect children to read at least four times a week. Children will be rewarded for completing this regular reading, so please make sure it is recorded in planners.
