Learning at home in Year 4

The children will be set spellings each week on Spelling Frame to complete at home.

Times Tables Rockstar should be used as often as possible with a minimum of 3 times a week. This will ensure your child has the skills needed to work effectively in their lessons in school.

Reading should still take place daily at home. This should be a mix of reading aloud to an adult and reading to themselves. It is important that an adult asks questions about what their child has read in order to develop comprehension skills.







Homework Project

Research ‘Parthenon’ and use your research to share your findings. You could create a fact file, make a video recording, an information power point or a poster. If you are feeling very arty you could even create your own model Parthenon! Remember to send in projects so we can share your wonderful learning.

Themes & Topics


Autumn

Our Autumn term topic is ‘The Greeks’.

We look at the origins of the Olympics and the competitive nature they instilled within us.  We will research into the daily life of the Greeks. Towards the end of the topic children will organised their own Moorhill Olympics.

Coming soon!

Spring

Our Spring Term topic is ‘Aztecs’.

We will focus on the life of an Aztec, including researching their trading and chocolate. The children will make comparisons between the Aztecs and the Ancient Greeks.

Coming soon!

Summer


The Summer Term brings our ‘Safari’ topic to Year 4!

The children will act as travel agents, researching life in Kenya, including geographical landmarks, as well as the animals indigenous to Africa. Throughout the topic we will discover the colourful prints and designs on fabric and listen to the music that influences Kenyan lifestyles. The topic will land with the ‘travel agents’ selling their holiday experience to you, as parents, and entice you into the life of Africa.
