Values driven learning
Please find below an overview of year four’s curriculum for 2019/20:
At Litherland Moss we have a values driven approach to learning. Below is the ‘Rainbow Pathway’ for our current curriculum focus.
Science – Changing States of Matter
Geography – Scavengers to Settlers
This term, PE is on a Wednesday. Please make sure you have your full kit every Wednesday.
This year, we are having a big focus on reading across the school. We are aiming to encourage more home reading. Regular reading helps children to develop their fluency and comprehension skills, and in turn helps them to access the rest of the curriculum. Please sign your child’s reading record every time they read. Children that read 3 or more times over the course of the week will be entered into a weekly raffle for the chance to win book of their choice! Children that have read the most over the course of the half term will be invited to a special reading breakfast at the end of term
Creative homework projects will be set half termly. The children are encouraged to take more time over these projects.
Spellings and Times Tables
Children will receive spellings on Fridays in preparation for a spelling test the following Friday.
In year 4, we hold a weekly times table speed test, in which the children aim to beat their score or their time. Please ensure your child practises their times tables regularly – it is a national curriculum objective that children know all their times tables facts up to 12×12 (and the associated division facts) by the end of year 4.
