Summer Term 2022
Before we inform you of activities and events that will be happening in Year 3 and 4 during the Spring Term, we would first of all like to welcome you- we hope that we will all be able to work together in the spirit of our school motto:
As we enter the final term of our academic year we will be basing most of our learning on the topic ‘Food Glorious Food!’ We will be focusing on where our food comes from, nutrition, healthy eating, our skeletal system and moving and growing.
We have an exciting visit planned to Cadbury World in our second half term. This is to assist the children in their learning and exploration of our Key Author text ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl. Please check your child’s reading packet throughout the term for further details.
As the school term develops, we will post information and examples of the children’s work on the Year 3 and 4 pages of the school website or our school Twitter account.
Literacy and language
Fiction: The children will explore how authors create mystery and suspense in mystery stories. They will use similar techniques to write their own stories.
Non-fiction: The children will be developing their knowledge of non-chronological reports. They will identify key features of this text type and then write their own.
End of year 4 expectations for English.
Þ I can spell most words correctly. (Please speak to your child’s class teacher about the Y3 and Y4 National Curriculum spelling lists)
Þ I can write neatly, legibly and accurately, maintaining a joined style.
Þ I can use paragraphs to organise my writing although may not always be accurate
Þ I can use fronted adverbials and use a comma afterwards.
Þ I can evaluate and edit by proposing changes to grammar and vocabulary to improve consistency, including the accurate use of pronouns in sentences.
Þ I can extend the range of sentences with more than one clause by using a wider range of conjunctions, including when, if, because, although.
Þ I can use sophisticated conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions to express time and cause.
Þ I can use the present perfect form of verbs in contrast to the past tense. Present perfect tense is used for activities that started in the past but are still true now, or have an effect on what is happening now. My friend Kashaan has lived in this town for five years. We have been best friends all that time
Þ I can use inverted commas accurately.
Þ I can use the possessive apostrophe accurately in words with regular and irregular plurals e.g. girls’, boys’, children’s.
Each term we will be focusing on a famous children’s Author. Our Key Author this term is 'Roald Dahl.'
We hope that the children will enjoy reading his texts and completing some of the activities we have planned for them so that they are enthused about reading!
