In Year 4 we get off to a fantastic start with some wonderful learning experiences and visits. We will learn about the Ancient Greeks and enjoy an exciting Greek workshop, including sampling some Greek food and enjoying some traditional entertainment. The English work will focus on the text Varjak Paw by SF Said. We will also be looking at Greek myths and legends. We will visit the Christmas pantomime. In Maths we will be looking at consolidating our understanding of known maths facts and a wide range of application strategies and written methods. We will be learning all of our times tables up to 12x12.
The Spring term will see us leaping forward in time, to the time of the Roman invasions. We will be looking at different sources of information to find out about Roman Britain and visiting Colchester Castle to learn about the ethnically diverse Roman Empire. We will continue to develop our love of reading with various fiction and non-fiction texts including Toro Toro by Michael Morpurgo and selected texts from the Literacy Shed. In Maths, we will be honing our problem solving abilities and working on division facts. Our science will be very exciting as we learn all about Electricity and Sound.
In the Summer term we start to explore London and all its many wonders. We concentrate on the environment both locally and globally. We will be conducting a range of surveys and field work to help with our mapping skills. We will be learning about the Anglo Saxons in our history lessons and incorporating an Anglo Saxon Day into our curriculum. We are really looking forward to a fun-packed Year 4!
