Year 4 2019 - 2020

Welcome to the Year 4 class page.

Spring Term 2020

Happy New Year!

What an exciting term we have planned. Lots of sensational new learning about the ‘Shang Dynasty’ from ‘Ancient China’. This will be our focus this term in History. We will carry this theme in to English too, looking at ‘Chinese Poetry’, rhyme and rhythm.  We will be drafting and redrafting different types of poetry including writing performance poetry, which the children will present to the class in groups. We will also use a variety of ‘Chinese Themed Poetry’ for ideas to write diary entries and newspaper reports. These will be on display when the children have completed them.

Our DT project will see us making phone cases using needles to show a variety of stitches, felt for the main body of the case and some additional decoration decided by the children. Planning their design and showing the materials and stitches they have chosen to use will be recorded in their Art books.

The RE topic is Jesus, Son of God.  In this unit the children will deepen their understanding of Jesus, who he was, his teaching and behaviour. They will be able to use the events covered in the stories in this unit to illustrate and emphasise that Jesus is the Son of God; that he was born both God and man.

Science will be loud! It's all about the SOUND! Types of sound and how is it heard and made? This will involve researching around school and recording our findings.

Wider Ops will continue this term with their performance showing their learning just before Easter.

There will be a change this term in the first part of the PE session. Swimming! On Thursday afternoons (date to be confirmed) the children will take part in swimming lessons to ensure that all children can swim or advance in swimming ability. Exciting!

Remember to use TTRS daily!
