Welcome to Year 4!
The Year 4 Classes are taught by Mr Pullen, Mr Squires and Mrs Moss.
TAs: Mrs Graham and Mr Nash.
This half term we are focusing on the Anglo Saxons. Our learning begins with learning why the Anglo Saxons arrived in Britain and where they settled. In history, we learn how to have a historical debate and about how versions of events differ about Alfred the Great.
In Art, we will be learning about art from the Anglo Saxon times, developing our drawing skills by experimenting with line and colour, so that we can create our own illuminated letter.
During our English lessons, we are reading and writing texts based on stories with historical settings. We will focus on the text ‘Beowulf’, retold by Michael Morpurgo, learning to use fronted adverbials and other powerful descriptive words to write in role and create our own chapter for the book.
In maths, we are continuing our work on multiplication, focusing on the seven times table, and then working on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.
Homework tasks are provided on a Friday, where appropriate and should be completed by the following Wednesday.
This term, we have Forest School – more information on when this will be will follow soon.
We will also be doing indoor and outdoor PE on a Thursday and Friday. Please send your child to school in their named PE kit, with their normal clothes in a bag, so that they can change after the lesson.
