Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

The summer term is suddenly upon us and our values will be  Diversity and Collaboration for this half term. In English, our class text is Egyptology, the thrilling story about an amateur archaeologist Emily Sands, who journeyed to Egypt to look for the tomb of Osiris. Our focus this half term is to continue to build on writing stamina through descriptive writing, report writing and letter writing. As part of our Tomb Raider topic we will explore the religious beliefs of Ancient Egyptians, interpret hieroglyphs and research the life of Cleopatra.  Our grammar focus will be on applying forms of standard English and revising suffixes.In Maths this term we will learn how to calculate decimals and read  analogue and digital time, learning key facts of the calendar year.Our science topic involves exploring the properties of solids, liquids and gases and apply our investigational skills to answer questions. We are very fortunate to have an ex professional tennis coach to improve our co-ordination skills and now that our school field is dry for the summer, we will be enjoying athletics, trying out our new PE equipment!
