Jade class

Welcome to Jade Class!

Jade is a brilliant Year 4 class taught by Mr Hill, with the help of our excellent TA Ben.

This year we are going to have many adventures to help us learn, travelling through Africa, Antarctica, and even the human body!

This half term will see Year 4 studying ‘Blood, Bones and Body bits’and answering the question, ‘What are we made of?’

Our studies will take us on a scientific journey through the body, exploring skeletons, muscles, senses, teeth, nutrition and organs and their functions. In Literacy, the children will be looking at Instruction and Explanation texts related to the human body, then getting creative while writing their own text about alien bodies. In Numeracy, we will be developing our understanding of decimals and negative numbers. In Art we will be using examples from the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo and using fruit and vegetables!  Indoor P.E. will see the start of an exciting dance unit where children will be using a well known song to create a series of sequences, while in Outdoor P.E., we will be starting our Net Games unit, focusing on refining our Tennis skills.
