Year 4

  Spring 2

Year 4 is taught by Mrs Walters on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.  Mrs Ould will teach the class on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons. The teaching assistants who will be working with the children are Miss May and Mrs Goodwin.

This half term, we are reading ‘Wolf Brother’ and travelling back in time to the Stone Age…..

English

Our class text, on which our daily reading sessions are based, is ‘Wolf Brother’ by Michelle Paver. If your child enjoys this book, there is a series of ‘Chronicles of Ancient Darkness’ by the same author. We will be writing a narrative set in Neolithic Times, a guide to surviving the Stone Age and Stone Age poetry.

History

We will be learning key facts about the Stone Age and the beginning of the Iron Age and what it was like to live in those times.

Computing

We will be learning about internet safety.

Art

We will be creating cave paintings and studying artist Kurt Jackson.

Science

We’ll be learning about the digestive system and teeth.

PE

Each week, we will be enjoying 2 PE sessions: Invaders on a Monday and Boxercise on a Thursday. Please make sure your child has a full PE kit at all times.

 RE

We will be learning about Jesus as a historical figure and Easter.

 MFL

We will learn basic Spanish with Mrs Ould, including numbers, colours and greetings.

It is our aim that every child in Year 4 has a great year. Please come and see us if you have any questions or concerns.
