What are we Learning:
English: This half term we are reading the story of The Egyptian Cinderella, from this we will be developing our description skills and understanding of traditional Fairy Tales in order to write our own The Egyptian Snow White stories. This will also feed into our topic on Ancient Egypt where we will be writing explanation texts too.
Maths: The focus this half term is to: develop quick mental recall of number bonds to 100; mental and written addition and subtraction; develop our knowledge of the 6 and 9 times tables; telling the time and measuring length.
Religious Education: Year 4 are currently undergoing a Peace Project, where the aim to to help the children realise how to find peace within themselves; how to help others find peace, in our friends, community, country and ultimately to Let Peace Prevail on Earth.
Topic: This half term Miss Birkett will be exploring Ancient Egypt.
