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 2021

This term in year four our topic is the Ancient Egyptians. We will ink this to our English, Art, Music and Computing sessions as well as Egyptian Dance in some of our PE lessons!

In English, we will start the term looking at classical poetry (particularly ballads and sonnets). Then we will link our work to our topic, including explanation texts on building the pyramids and mummification and instruction writing. We will also be writing newspaper reports about the mystery of Tutankhamen’s death. Later in the term, we will move onto writing traditional stories (particularly legends, myths and fables). Our grammar will focus on sentence types, figurative language and the use and spelling of different prefixes and suffixes.

In Maths, we will continue with multiplication and division when finding factors of numbers and multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. We will continue to apply our key maths skills to more complex problems using measures. We will 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.
