English and Big Reading



We will start the term by exploring persuasive texts, identifying features and themes. We will learn the difference between fact and opinion and how to include them in our writing to help persuade the reader.


We will use our new spelling scheme to support the learning of Year 4 spelling words and new spelling rules.




We will be focusing on these mathematical concepts:

•Multiplication and division facts in the context of time and measurement.
•Place Value.
• We will also continue to work in our CLIC groups to support mental maths skill and plug individual gaps to accelerate progress.


In Big maths/CLIC sessions we will focus on the following concepts;

•Counting in multiples of 4, 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1000

•Multiplication and division facts (times tables).
