Homework is set on Fridays and runs for the week, it includes spellings, grammar activities, TTRockstars - (times tables online gigs and multiplication games) and MyMaths activities to consolidate maths learning from the week.
Below is a link to our curriculum map which shows the great range of topics we study across the year group including ‘Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, Flight in Farnborough, Volcanoes/Democratic of Congo. We enjoy learning in a creative way and try to incorporate drama across the curriculum. In English we use a range of different genres and text styles to stimulate and generate our own writing. We follow Hampshire County Council planning units for Spelling and Grammar. In maths we continue to build on our number skills and accuracy in written calculations. We study fractions, decimals and percentages as well as shape and data.
Our learning in RE follows the God Matter's programme provided by the Diocese of Portsmouth and through Catholic Social Teaching. We spend time learning about bible stories and verses linked through topics such as Creation, Who is my neighbour? Advent.
Year 4 have an overnight trip to Runways End during the Spring Term and we will be exploring the FAST Museum in Farnborough to support our History topic of Farnborough Flight.
