Year 4 – September

In literacy, the children’s learning has been centred on the book “Blue Planet II”. Through this, the children have explored their non-chronological report writing and its features. The children have also been developing their writing skills when writing main clauses in the present tense.

In numeracy, the children have learnt about place value, including ordering and comparing numbers to 10,000. The children also are developing their formal written methods for addition.

In science, the children have learnt about renewable and non-renewable sources of electricity and how they have an impact on the environment. The children have also explored making a complete circuit.

The children have enjoyed themselves during their geography lessons where they have explored atlases to find and identify the: different continent, oceans, countries around the equator and climates. The children have also applied their locational and scale knowledge using four figure grid reference.
