Year 4

Welcome to Year 4 at Atlantic Academy Portland!

Year 4A's teacher is Mrs Watson.. Mrs Watson said they are very excited to work with their new classes and to get to know all the fantastic children in them.




Miss Gulliver and Miss Halcrow are the Year 4 Learning Support Assistants.



In the summer term, the children have made progress towards making their age related expectations. In English, we are reading a fantasy story incorporating Egyptian gods and their magical powers. We are using this as a model to write our own fantasy story using expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials with adjectives, conjunctions and speech punctuation for dialogue. 


In maths, we are working hard on data handling, time, measures and shapes. We are continuing to work on our times tables. Thank you for your continued support with homework and signing your child's reading record daily.


In the coming term, we are looking forward to our final topic of the year of Fairtrade. We will be reading the timeless novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. As we find out about chocolate, we will be writing persuasive advertisements and thinking about the Mayan Civilisation.
