Year 4

Autumn 2

 

This term we're going to be learning about states of matter in science. Exploring the rainforest in geography. Computing calculations with Excel in er..... computing... Singing our hearts out for Christmas (something to look forward to!). Printing and painting in art. Bending our bodies in gymnastics and hopefully getting a little bit taller!

 

The book we'll be looking at for this half term is "The Savage" by David Almond. A fantastic and sometimes quite dark look at how we explore our feelings when we get upset.

Some action from our rounders practice. While none were confident enough to start calling themselves 'batman' we did manage to knock some tennis balls about!

Learning about food chains. I was thrilled to be a shark, almost as thrilled as one of my children was to find out he ate me!

Welcome to year 4!!!

 

Time to learn about the Ancient Romans, secure our addition and subtraction skills, discover what eats what and hopefully get a bit taller!

 

For parents who want to help their children out this year, Times Tables are hugely important.  If you get any time at home to make sure that your child is confident then you will give them an advantage this year!

 

Myself (Mr Etheridge) and our wonderful TAs, Miss Kattenhorn and Miss Lines, bid you welcome and look forward to a great year!

 

 

There are many ways that you can help your child at home. Above is a link to what your child will be learning in English this term and how you can help them at home.
