Welcome to Year 4!
The Year 4 Classes are taught by Mr Hodgkins and Miss Bell and our brilliant TAs Mr Geen, Mrs Lilley and Mrs Clifford.
This year we are going to have many adventures to help us learn, from travelling through Africa to journeying through the human body!
Our new topic for the last half of the summer term is the Stone Age! We will look at aspects of the countries earliest civilisations, considering the impact of tools on the Stone Age people and making comparisons between how different tools developed throughout the Stone Age. We will gain an understanding of the chronological order of the events throughout human history and their vast scope of time. We will also investigate secondary sources, such as pictures of primary sources to consider how early man lived, and begin to explore how historians draw conclusions from evidence.
As well as this, we will in Art, we will learning all about Palaeolithic cave art and in DT we will be designing and making our own electrical powered vehicles.
In English, we will be reading ‘Stig of the dump’ and will be writing our own chapter to continue the stories with an adventure of Stig and Barney. In Maths, we will begin a new unit of ‘Properties of Shape’ and also ‘Position and Direction’.
Homework tasks are provided a Friday, where appropriate and should be completed by the following Tuesday.
