Year 4

Croeso i Dosbarth Teifi!

Croeso and welcome to Dosbarth Teifi. Our teacher is Mrs Jones. This term in Language we will be reading the books, The Paperbag Prince and Wanted, which will cover narrative and a wide range of non- fiction text (explanation, persuasion and discussion). We will be using our knowledge of writing in a particular genre across the curriculum. The children all know the weekly structure of their Language lessons. On day 2 the pupils will revise and learn amazing Alan Peat sentences which relate to a particular genre. When pupils assess their extended piece of writing on day 5, they will highlight Alan Peat sentences in yellow. The children will be learning to edit their writing and set targets.


In maths, we will be covering a variety of topics. This year we are using Big Maths as our scheme and we will be covering 4 aspects of mathematics each day. Children will also be given number facts to learn known as 'Learn its' to help improve recall of addition and multiplication facts which can then be used for subtraction and division. For homework children will complete their CLIC and the timed 'Learn its' will be done in class. Every Friday pupils have a problem solving session to develop mathematical reasoning which will involve transferring the mathematical skills acquired during the week.

Our topic this term is - Calon Lan - Sustainable Wales. In the topic the children will be finding out about how we can help Wales and the planet. From our COOL day (Choosing our own Learning) children will decide which activities to develop across the curriculum. The children will dress up for COOL Day and be engaged in a wide range of activities

Pupils will develop their language of rights and responsibilities and as a result have a calm, caring and co-operative learning environment where everyone can thrive and reach their true potential.
