Important days

  • Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be returned by Wednesday. If your child needs help with their homework, please speak with their class teacher before the return day.
  • Outdoor games is on a Wednesday. Children need to bring PE kit and trainers. Indoor PE is on a Thursday (both classes) and swimming is on a Tuesday (4Y) and Wednesday (4B). We recommend that PE kit is brought in each Monday and that it stays in school until Friday, in case PE day changes for any reason. 

Topic

This half term our topic will be the Victorians.  We will be focusing mainly on Queen Victoria, the British Empire and life in Victorian times.

 

In art, we will be researching William Morris and the children work towards creating their own wallpaper.

 

In music, the children will be learning to play the recorder, fingering for BAG and E. They will be learning pieces to develop reading and finger fluency with Mrs Ayebare. 

 

In RE, the children will be discussing and completing work on the unit: ‘What does it mean to be a Hindu in Britain today?’

 

English

Our two English units this half term will be stories with a historical setting, using Oliver Twist as our main text and play scripts and their features.

 

Maths

The first two weeks of the half term, Year 4 will continue to compare, round, order and recognise, as well as write decimal equivalents. We will then look at measurement including money. The final two weeks of half term, the children will be focusing on time and statistics.
