Our children have now completed their first year in the juniors and have settled in well. In Year 4 we continue to build upon the knowledge and skills they have learnt in previous years. In the Summer term we take the children on their first residential trip to York.
Our topic for the first half of the Autumn Term is 'India'. The children will look at similarities and differences between the UK and India and study Indian culture, geography and cities while solving the riddle of the stolen golden statue. They will also learn about the Hindu religion and about electrical circuits, all within the context of our India theme. Our learning journey will end with a WOW day.
With ADAPT maths lessons this term Year 4 will learn about arithmetic, number and place value, rapid recall of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, decimals and percentages, position and formal written methods. There will also be weekly 'basic skills' sessions.
In our English learning journeys we will study poetry, the traditional tales of Rudyard Kipling and non-chronological reports.These will be linked to Year 4 vocabulary, grammar, punctuation and spelling requirements. pupils will also have weekly discrete sessions on spelling.
Each child will take part in weekly Reciprocal Reading lessons, spending one session reading and discussing a text in a group with the class teacher, one session completing a follow up task, one session working on dictionary skills and one session reading for pleasure. We encourage children to readas often as possible outside of school.
Our focus during our computing sessions will be on 'basic skills' using Microsoft Office. Children will be able to create, amend and publish documents using Word and PowerPoint, including how to change font style, background and the look of a piece of work. They will be introduced to sensible online searching within our weekly computing lessons.
In PE the children will take part in circuit lessons. We are also fortunate to welcome Cheltenham Town FC this term to carry out weekly football coaching sessions.
Our PSHCE and Circle Time will focus on settling into our new year group and personal resilience. We will also hold regular 'Philosophy for Children' sessions, looking at the concept of honesty and discussing various scenarios.
We will continue to have music lessons with Mrs Powell and Miss Bishop.
