Term 5 - The Earth and Beyond
We have produced some Knowledge Organisers for some of our key projects this term. you can find them below. Please use these to revise key knowledge with your children.
We shall be learning about biographies. Using an biography of Neil Armstrong, we shall plan and write our own biographies about Tim Peake. We shall be focusing on the purpose and audience of the pieces of writing and how authors make choices based on these. We shall also be using a range of punctuation in our writing including dashes and semi colons.
4J will be revising place value of numbers and how to use this to support multiplying and dividing. We shall also be learning about ratio before we move on to problem solving involving shapes. 4L and 4P will be learning about fractions and how to add and subtract them. Keep practising your number facts on TT Rockstars!
