Pavender Class (Year 4)

Mrs Reed  |  Teaching assistant: Mrs Burnett 

What we do:

In Pavender Class we cover all subjects within the National Curriculum. We focus on the enjoyment of our learning as well as challenging ourselves in all subjects. Everyone works really hard to achieve their best in all areas of school life.  Our literacy work is often cross-curricular and makes links to work in science, geography and history. In Maths, we build on and develop skills learnt in previous years. We cover the four methods of calculation, then moving on to problem solving. In addition to this, we study data handling, shape space and measure. We do our best to give children practical experiences in Maths for example through cooking and measuring.


We are going to be writing poetry and also imaginative descriptive writing.  SPAG will focus on possessive apostrophes, paragraphs and the present and past progressive tense.


Our main topic areas this term are:

-Practise all the times tables so that they can recall all of them and the division facts up to 12 x12.

-Comparing, ordering and rounding decimals

-Recognise tenths and hundredths and place them on a numberline.

-Divide 1 or 2 digits by 100.

-Rounding to estimate money

-Use the four operations to solve money problems.
