Year 4 Overview

At Caen we have  two Year 4 classes, taught by Mrs McAuley and Mrs Laverty; and, Mrs Mobbs and Mrs Arnold. The children are also taught weekly by Mr Harvey for computing and Laura Martin for PE.

You can download the current term's learning overview below.

For maths the school is planning using the White Rose scheme of work ( https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ ) and teachers also use a variety of other resources such as Nrich ( http://nrich.maths.org ) and the National Centre for the Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics ( http://www.nctem.org.uk ). These sites all have free to download resources and materials should parents be interested and all the White Rose Maths materials are free to download. On the Nrich site you can search by maths topic or age. Furthermore all children have their own Times Table Rock Stars login - please do use daily. We also have access to My Maths ( https://www.mymaths.co.uk/ ). The school login is: Braunton1 and the password is: tangent296. There are lessons and games for all stages and levels - just ensure that the curriculum drop down menu (left-hand side) is set to 'English National Curriuculum'.

For reading we encourage children to challenge themselves with the Pie Corbett Reading Spine. Pie Corbett is recognised as one of the pre-eminent educationalists with regards to literacy and he has selected appropriate books for every age group. These can be found on the Scholastic site here: https://www.scholastic.co.uk/piecorbett/resources . Below we have also included recommended reads for each year group - these are all high quality texts that will give your child a rich and varied diet. Oxford Owl have opened up their online reading platform for all here: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/ . Devon Libraries has a a wealth of ebooks and they can be found here: https://librariesunlimited.overdrive.com/ .

Termly Overview - Autumn 2020

Weekly Overview - w/c 28th September

Maths - we need to really understand the size of numbers and iunderstand the value of each digit in a 4 digit number to give us a better number sense and to help us to calculate with these numbers later in the term. Therefore we will continue to work on rounding numbers to 10, 100 and 1000 and we will also be ordering and comparing 4 digit numbers. We are practising our 6 times tables in our warm ups and will also become proficient counting in 25s, looking for patterns to help us.  You can watch the videos on the White Rose Home Learning page here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/week-3/

English - we will continue with our grammar focus on fronted adverbials and will also look at how speech is punctuated. By the end of the week, we hope to turn our attention to planning our own Beasties story and so will think of an object and where it may have come from.
