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 will see Year 4 studying The Stone Age and answering the question “How did the use of tools improve life for our ancestors?”
In Maths we will be continuing our work with Maths Hub and Abacus, solving mathematical word problems by applying our knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to word problems. In English we will be describing our very own Stone Age man and falling through a garden shed into Stone Age times. In Science we will be showing off what bright sparks we are in exciting, electrical lessons. We will be creating electrical circuits and identifying recording our findings scientifically. In Computing we will be creating python code using the Scratch compute program and debugging our creations. In History we are discovering what Stone Age life was like and investigating the secrets behind Stonehenge.
We are looking forward to our exciting final Year 4 term!

Homework is given out on a Friday, and is due back on a Tuesday.
French lessons take place every Thursday.
