Year 4

Welcome to Year 4


Welcome to the Scarlet Class blog. This half term, we are learning about fair trade. Our theme is “Fair is Fair” We will be learning about the journey of the cocoa bean from plant to the shelves in our supermarkets. Whilst improving our map skills, we will also be thinking about the climates in which cocoa beans grow.

In English, to tie in with our work on Fairtrade and Chocolate, we are reading Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Our class novel will be a starting point to write recounts, newspaper reports and our stories set in imaginary settings.

In Maths, we are working on measure and multiplication and division. We are all working towards achieving our Bronze and Silver badges and need to practise all of our multiplication tables everyday at home to become confident and fluent.

Thank you for your support with reading and homework – it is much appreciated and makes a huge difference to our progress in school.

Please check back soon to see what we have been up to.
