English:

 For our English, we always try and link our work closely to our topic. For this half term, we will be using a short film called Ride of Passage  to write our own narrative, we will be doing a lot of work from the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as well as using tfilm film "The road to El Dorado" as inspiration for our writing.

Spellings are practised in class every week and are made up of 10 words which follow a spelling patterns. We use spelling frame so children can access their spellings online and practise. 

Maths:

In Maths we follow the White Rose Hub Maths scheme in order to help children to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. This half term we will have a particular focus on multiplication and division as well as fractions. Each week we have a times table test and an arithmetic test. At the end of the year, Year 4 will be taking part in a government set Times Table test where they will need to know up to 12 x 12.
