Year 4

Welcome to Year 4.

 

Welcome back to a new term and the start of a new year. This term we are learning all about Exploration and Encounters - focusing mainly on Tudor Britain. In science we will be studying light and then, later in the term, electricity. 

 

In maths this week we are considering what we know already about multiplying and dividing by 9. We will use a lot of physical resources to help us better understand what is really happening with each sum. In English we are beginning to look at the book The Matchbox Diary and consider how the Grandfather in the story came to 'make' a diary without actually writing anything down.  We will need to use a lot of our prior knowledge to analyse some of the situations the Grandfather finds himself in on his journey. 

 

 

The adults in Year 4 are:

Mrs Robinson (Mon- Weds)

Mrs McCormick (Thurs-Fri)

Mrs Hill

 

P.E will take place on Mondays and Fridays, but please ensure you have PE kit every day in case there is a change to our timetable. This term we are learning all about hockey, so the children will need mouth guards in school with them.

 

We will be visiting the library on a Monday afternoon, so please bring your library books back to school on this day.
