Welcome to Year 4!
Mrs Paternoster, Mrs Stapleton and Mrs Ford are pleased to offer a very warm welcome to Year 4. This term our topic is Stone Age to Iron Age, so we will be finding out lots about Stone Age life in our History and Geography lessons. In Art we will be having a go at creating some cave drawings and Design and Technology will involve us creating our own replica models of Stonehenge.
The texts we will be using this term, as a stimulus for our English work, are Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura and The Firework Maker's Daughter by Philip Pullman. Throughout the term we will be covering instruction, narrative, explanation and non-chronological report writing as well as some poetry too. In Maths we will begin with place value before progressing to addition and subtraction. After half term we will be measuring length and perimeter before working on multiplication and division. Our Science topic is Living things and their environment, which will involve us investigating how the environment can affect different groups of animals. P.E days this term are Mondays and Fridays and we ask that the children come to school wearing their P.E kits on those days. Also, please ensure long hair is tied back and earrings removed.
Please remember if you have any concerns or questions we can be contacted on Class Dojo. We look forward to a very busy but fun and exciting term ahead.
