Welcome to Year 4 Peridot!

Our class teacher is Mr Glossop.

Year 4 is an exciting year. It is our final year in Lower Key Stage 2 before we move up to year 5 and wear purple jumpers! We are looking forward to our topics: Active Planet; Land, Sea and Sky; Bright Sparks and Saving the World with Chocolate.

This half term our topic is ‘Land, Sea and Sky’. We will be learning about animals, plants and habitats. In English, we will be learning about news reports and basing our learning around the book ‘Flotsam’ by David Wiesner. It is a great picture book about a boy who discovers an old camera on the beach. Our Maths work will be on fractions. We will be finding fractions of amounts, adding and subtracting fractions and converting mixed numbers and improper fractions. We will be solving a range of problems involving fractions too. It is really important that we know all our times tables off by heart by the end of year 4 so we will be practising them daily.

The Readathon has started! Whenever you have finished reading a book make sure you tell school and we can add another book to our Readathon display!

We also have Whitby to look forward to in a few months. It is a fantastic residential and for some children it will be the first time they have stayed away from home. It will be a great experience.
