Sapphire class

Welcome to Sapphire Class!

Sapphire is a fantastic Year 4 class taught by Miss Dalby, with the help of our wonderful TA Sarah.

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 Year 4 will be 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. In Literacy, the children will be looking at instruction and explanation texts related to the human body, and will get creative whilst 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 to create our own collages!  Indoor P.E. will see the start of an exciting gymnastics unit, and in Outdoor P.E. we will be focusing on refining our tennis skills.

The links below are to some websites that you may want to have a look at to find out more about the human body:
