Welcome to Class 4!
I hope you all have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to the Autumn Term. I certainly am!
Please see below for details about what the children will be studying throughout the term.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to message me on Class Dojo.
Our Class Saint
Year 4's class saint is St Thomas More. We will be celebrating his feast day on the 22nd June 2023. A date to put in the diary!
We will begin the Autumn Term by exploring Legends and analysing their features, with the aim to write our own Legend narrative! To help create this, our focus text will be Freya and the Goblins. We will use drama skills, inference skills and language techniques to develop our writing style and to produce a fantastic legend.
We will also boost our reading skills by completing weekly Guided Reading sessions which focus on VIPERS skills and reading a range of text types.
In design and Technology in Year 4 we will be focusing on textiles. We will be creating book covers using fasteners to develop our skills following on from the tote bag project last year. We will be using applique, running stitch, sewing buttons and elastic to create a funky individual book cover for our current reading books.
In Geography, Year 4 will be learning about Mountains, including how to identify them and identifying them on maps. This will help to improve their locational knowledge and they will develop their understanding of physical and human processes.
This term we will be going right back to the Anglo Saxon period. We will consider the significance of the Anglo Saxon's settlement and the impact the struggle for the Kingdom had on people at this time.
We will begin our computing lessons by focusing on Online Safety and reminding ourselves of the key skills necessary to use information in a reliable and safe way.
Please ensure your child comes with a water bottle into school every day.
If there is anything I can help will please do not hesitate to ask me.
