Welcome to Year 4!
Year 4 are taught by Miss Simmonds and Mrs Pullin, ably assisted by Mrs Cooper, Mr Devereux and Mrs Metherell.
This half term, we will be learning about rivers in geography, animals and their habitats in science, learning about the journey of life through Hinduism in RE as well as looking at work from the artist Escher. We are learning to play the ukulele in music as well as doing gymnastics and swimming in PE. For more detailed information, please click on the Curriculum Information document, below.
We will also be continuing to look at creating fantastic sentences in English using fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases and practising our times tables skills. Keep learning those tables at home using your Times Tables Rockstars login details and use the link to Hit The Button further down the page to help you.
Remember to start working on your Creative Curriculum homework... what can you create on the theme of 'rivers'? We're very much looking forward to seeing your creations, which are due in on Wednesday 27th February.
