This term, we are learning about electricity. We have been discussing how cells work and how to construct a circuit. Our key vocabulary for this topic is;
- closed circuit
- open circuit
- cell (battery)
We had a lot of fun trying to get a circuit to work in year 4.
This term, we have been practicing for sports day. Are you as excited as we are?
This term in maths we will be focussing on fractions specifically; fractions of amounts in whole numbers and measure (1/4 of 1litre, 3/5 of 1.5m etc.), equivalent fractions and creating equivalent fractions by multiplying and dividing the denominator and the numerator, ordering fractions and comparing fractions (which is bigger 3/4 of 5/8?) After fractions, we will be moving on to multiplying and diving using a formal written method.
Below will be the next set of areas that we will be covering over the next 5 weeks:
- Comparing and ordering angles
- Position and direction
Homework & Spellings

If your child is struggling to complete their homework, please encourage them to see us before the homework is due and not on the day it is due.
We have really enjoyed reading The Butterfly Lion. Please no spoilers as we are just about to read the ending. We are going to be writing our own version of the story and we are very excited about it! In this unit, we are really going to be focusing on
- fronted adverbials
- expanded noun phrases
For our last English unit, we looked at a book about fantastical castles by Colin Thompson. We then wrote a non-chronological report about our own fantastical castle.
We had the best time at Kingswood. We hope you like the pictures!
