Year 4 - Summer 1 - Countries and Cultures


Literacy: This half term we will continue with our short story writing ‘El Caminante’ which encourages the children to extend their writing by using multi-clause sentences. A short, silent film from the British Film Institute is used for inspiration.


Maths: We will continue to look at mental and written methods of + - x and ÷. We will also be involved in lots of real-life maths involving fractions and geometry. Take a look at the homework page on Active learn for support videos.


Topic: Within our Countries and Cultures topic, the children will create artwork combining print and imaginative writing – translated into Spanish! The children will also develop their geographical skills by exploring their local and global environments.


Homework: Please continue to work with your child on their spellings (found on our class web page every week) and don’t forget our on-going times table practise as well as the Active Learn on-line homework for grammar, spellings, maths and interactive books.
