Welcome to Conqueror!

Our teacher is called Miss Garner and we are helped by Miss Preston three days a week.

Currently we have chosen to learn more about Ancient Greece.

Although we have specific times for parent/carer visits, please feel free to arrange a pop in if you ever want to see the work we are doing!

What we are exploring this term..

Conqueror will be using our topic to explore different areas of the curriculum. We hope to work together to find exciting ways to do this.

If you have any ideas, please let us know!

We need our PE kit on a Thursday.

Numeracy

This term, we will be looking at place value and will move onto number work using the four operations.

Times tables targets -

Year 4 - Recall and use multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 x 12.

Children will be tested once a week on a Friday and will bring home their test sheets. Please support their learning by asking them how they are getting on and if you can help them to practise.

Reading

Reading is very important all the way through school and in Year 4, the children are expected to take responsibility for their own home reading books. Please encourage your children to read each day and to remember to bring their home reading book into school. They can change their book themselves when they feel they can read and understand it.

Remember - you do not have to just read your home reading book! Newspapers, Kindles, comics and even the ingredient lists on food all count!

Our author for this half term is Rick Riordan.

Ask your children about the text and feel free to watch the film as we will be alongside our reading and it may support their understanding.

Who would you choose to be your class author?

Writing

This term, Conqueror will be focusing on narrative writing and non-fiction texts that support their research on Ancient Greece. We will also be looking at grammar, developing our knowledge of punctuation.

The Year 3 and 4 spelling list is attached below.
