Spring Term 2019

 LITERACY- This Spring term we will be discovering lots of information about the rainforests around the world. Our literacy genres will be based around The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry as well as reading a variety of non fiction books linked to the rainforests of the world. We will also be developing our comprehension and inference skills by reading extracts from 'The Jungle Book' by Rudyard Kipling.



In Numeracy this Spring term we will be focusing on telling the time using an analogue clock as well as the 24 hour clock. We will also be looking more closely at analysing data through bar line charts, venn diagrams and carroll diagrams.Further to this, we will also be learning how to convert different units of measure.

YEAR 4 is a VERY important year for knowing by heart- all our times tables facts! We will still be practicing our times tables on a daily and weekly basis. Please make sure your child uses our TTRockstars site to develop their speed and accuracy for the MTC in June.
