Term 4

Reading and Writing

We are continuing with Daily Supported Reader and Read Write Inc this term. Your child will bring home two reading books each week. Please remember to sign your child's reading record each time they read so they can take part in our exciting reward at the end of term.

We will also be reading the book Rusty Coati by Aldo Galli in class. This fantastic book links to our geography work and teaches us more about the physical features of the rainforest. We will use this to inspire our own story writing.



In maths we are focusing on Multiplication and Division and Fractions.


Your child will be expected to use a range of methods to solve multiplication and division problems, including using practical resources and mental methods. This includes:

  • knowing and using multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5, and 10 times tables
  • recognising and identifying odd and even numbers
  • using the symbols ×, ÷, and = to record multiplication and division calculations.


Your child will be expected to recognise and use the fractions 1/2,1/3,1/4 ,2/4  and 3/4 . This includes:

  • finding fractions of lengths, shapes, sets of objects, and quantities
  • writing simple fractions, such as 1/2 of 6 = 3
  • knowing that 1/2 and 2/4 mean the same thing.



In Science this term we are continuing learning about Living Things and Their Habitats


We will be finding out how different living things adapt to their environment and researching habitats around the world. We will also be finding out how energy travels through food chains.



Please see the detailed 'progression of learning' below to demonstrate how our scientific knowledge in this unit develops as we move through the school.



This term we are continuing our topic 'Under the Microscope' by investigating the concept question 'How is Cusco in Peru similar and different to our town?'

We will be using atlases to locate these places and compare their physical features. We will be thinking about how to travel to Peru and learning more about the Rainforest.

In term 4, we are continuing our work on portraits. We are learning about the work of a range of artists, describing the differences and similarities between them and making links to our own work. We are creating portraits in the style of these artist and thinking about which style we prefer. We will be looking at the works of Pablo Picasso, Gustav Klimt, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
