Year 4 - Our Learning 2021 - 22

Autumn 1

Reading

 

                          

 

We are reading these books as a whole class to link in with our topic - 'Irritating Invaders'. 

Writing

 

In our writing, we have been looking at portal stories. A main character finds a door, goes through it and finds themselves in another land - often magical in some way. We started by imagining what our own portal doors would look like and designing them. We have also been learning about expanded noun phrases (where we got to write on the tables!) and fronted adverbials to improve our descriptive writing. 

 

Check out the pictures below to see what we've been getting up to!

 

              

Maths

 

In maths, we have started the year by learning about place value and are focusing on introducing numbers up to 10,000. Below is a summary from the Maths No Problem website, explaining what is covered in the first unit.

 

Irritating Invaders

 

Our topic this term is all about 'Irritating Invaders'! We will be learning about the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons in History and about cities and villages in Geography. We kick started our topic by making our very own Viking helmets and took some pretty terrifying photos. 

 

   

 

    

 

 

In our Geography lessons, we have been discussing the difference between cities and villages and focusing on physical and human features. We became geographical surveyors when we compared human features in Manchester with a small village called Thornton le Dale. We even looked at different maps of the UK in an atlas!

 

    

 

         

P.E

 

Our two topics for P.E this term are Dance: Myths and Legends and Orienteering.

 

Check out some pictures from our dance sessions where we created freeze frames of monsters in groups of 3!
