Welcome to Class 9!
Welcome back after the Summer break. This first term is a very busy and exciting one for Year 4, when we will be learning lots of interesting things.
In RE, we will be reflecting on the gifts given to us by God. We will end Y4 focusing on prayer and how it is important to many of us.
We are already enjoying taking part in the Votes for Schools project within our PSHE lessons! This has proved an exciting way for the children to find out about one of our key British Value: democratic elections! Each week there is a topic to focus on that is current in the news. The children have chance to discuss it and cast their votes.
In our English lessons we will be working hard to improve our reading, writing and spelling skills. We will be focusing on Non- Fiction and fiction writing. We will start the term by looking at stories set in a fantasy setting, such as The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe.
In Mathematics, we will be looking at place value and using this knowledge to add and subtract numbers.By the end of Year 4 all pupils should know their times-tables to 12 x 12, so we will be working on this throughout the year!
Our topic in Science is all about different states of matter, we will look at how particles work.
We will starting with History and we are looking at the Anglo-Saxons and how and why they invaded England.
In Art we will be linking our work to History.
We will continue to use Purple Mash to support our Computing work: both in terms of skills development as well as topic application.
In Class 9 we have outdoor PE with Mr Hawthorne on Wednesday, so please make sure your full kit is in school for the week. We also have swimming on a Thursday for the first term.
We will continue to have French and music lessons on Tuesday morning.
Mrs Mavers and Mrs Davies are here to help us, especially during our Maths and English lessons. We are very lucky to have them.
