Welcome to the first term of this academic year!
Welcome to Year 4’s Class Page
We are looking forward to seeing you all again, and to making sure you all feel safe and happy after what has been a long time off school. We know it will be a little bit different to what you are used to, but we will still have a fun and exciting term.
Topics & Themes:
This term we will be learning about ‘The Ancient Greeks’. We will be using a range of sources such as books, maps, pictures and the internet to find out about aspects of life in Ancient Greece such as homes, food, clothes and entertainment. We will be planning and making our own Greek catapult in Design and Technology and exploring Greek pottery and Seurat in our art sessions.
During Science sessions this term, we are going to be learning about ‘Electricity’. We’re looking forward to investigating different types of circuits and creating our own ‘Recycled Robots’ for our mini ‘Robots’ topic.
During this term the children will have PE on Tuesday and Friday so those will be the days that they will come in PE kit. We should remind everybody; P.E. kit includes white or red plain T-shirts (not the polo shirt they are wearing all day) blue shorts and either trainers or plimsolls. Black jogging bottoms are fine too as the weather gets colder. No jewellery should be worn for safety reasons.
We will let you know about homework in due course, when we see how things are working and what will be manageable in the current situation. You can still read each night with your child, and practising times tables is important too, beginning with 10, 5 and 2, then progressing to 4 and 8, 3, 6, 9, and finally 7, 11 and 12.
