The Apple Harvest
Watch our video and hear the amazing way Year 4 have written about harvesting apples ...
September has arrived and we are delighted to be welcoming you back to school and to Year 4.
Our topic is 'Tudors and Stuarts' and we have lots of exciting things planned for this term. Get ready to find out about King Henry VIII and his many wives, Queen Elizabeth I, The Spanish Armada, The Plague, The Gunpowder Plot and The Great Fire of London. Keep a look out on this page for pictures of our work!
Our PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays. Please bring in a pair of named plimsolls or trainers to stay in school for PE lessons. We will do PE in our school uniform so you do not need to bring in PE kit. Girls may choose to wear trousers, jogging bottoms or leggings to school (black or grey only) rather than skirts or pinafores on their PE day.
The Queen's Token by Pamela Oldfield is our historical novel, with lots of opportunity for us to write about the characters and the Tudor Setting. The Spanish Armarda will inspire us to to recount the adventures of those on board the great ships.
In Maths we will focus on place value and then addition and subtraction. We'll also start the Year 4 adventure of learning all the times tables.
In Year 4 we have a big focus on learning all of our times tables up to 12x12. We'll start by going over the 2s, 5s and 10s which the children became familiar with in Year 2 and then recap the 4s and 8s which are a focus in Year 3. Then we'll learn the all of the rest of them! We'll be using every spare moment to practice them - including when we're washing our hands.
We're looking forward to celebrating each other's birthdays and getting our bunting out. Everyone has made a birthday card and so we have a full class set ready.
