Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Our teachers are Mrs Dunne (Mon-Thurs) and Mrs Rees (Fri).  Our TA is Mrs Broadfield (am).

Spring Term 2022

This term in year four we are learning about the Ancient Egyptians. In English we will be looking at classical poetry (particularly ballads and sonnets), instruction writing, explanation texts (building the pyramids and mummification), newspaper articles (Tutankhamun’s death), debates, and traditional stories (particularly legends, myths and fables). Our Art, Design Technology and Computing will link with our Egyptian topic. Grammar will focus on sentence types, figurative language and the use and spelling of different prefixes and suffixes.

In maths we will continue to apply our key maths skills to more complex problems, revise and continue to build on our knowledge of fractions and decimals and begin looking at angles, symmetry and measurement of perimeters.

In science we are learning about ‘animals including humans and human nutrition’ and ‘dangers to living things’ in the first part of the term and the biology of humans and animals in the second half of the term.
