Year 4 - Morpurgo

Welcome to Morpurgo Class

Mrs Godden and Miss Becirler


This half term our topic is

'Robin Hood'


"So the outlaws became the first of Robin's merry men. They nicknamed him Robin Hood and dressed in Lincoln green." 






This term, we will be continuing with our primary writing project, looking at the story of 'A Sorceress Comes to Camelot'. First we immitate the story, learning it off by heart using actions to help us. Then we will innovate it, making it our own. Finally we will invent, creating our own story!

In maths, we will be starting the new year investigating numbers to 100 000, whereby we will be recognising that 10 thousands = 1 ten thousand. Translating 5 digit numbers from numerals and words to place value models. Converting numerals to words and words to numerals. 



Please help your child practice their times tables as it will make learning to multiply and divide much easier! We need to learn them all the way up to 12 x 12!


 Remember to check out the links below for times table games and log in to your my maths accounts for more times table work.



During reading sessions, we will be working hard to develop comprehension skills using fiction and non-fiction texts.



Each week, we are having a competition to see which class can get the most REDS. The winning class will be given £10 to spend on books.


Please encourage your child to read everyday to get their RED and win prizes! It can be a school book, a book from home, a magazine, a newspaper... anything at all with words! 5 minutes reading a day will make a lot of difference to your child's progress.
