4GB

 Summer Term in Class 4GB

We thought we would take this opportunity to let you know some of the great things we will be learning about in Year 4 this term. 

English: Our chosen novel this term is Matilda by Roald Dahl. We will be looking at how the speech is portrayed in the book, and then writing our own stories, learning from some of Roald Dahl’s techniques. 

Maths: We will be focusing on number including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and putting them into context through word problems. We will also look at measures, shapes and co-ordinates. We will continue to focus on times tables to support progress through our Really Rapid Recall maths. 

Science: In Science we will be learning all about sound - involving pitch, vibration and how sound travels. We will incorporate music into this—seeing how different instruments make different sounds. 

PE: PE is on a Wednesday for 4GB and Thursday for 4T. We will be learning about athletics, starting with running, linking this with our own fitness and health. We will also be playing rounders this term, with particular focus on throwing and catching a ball, from a distance. Swimming is for the whole term on a Friday afternoon. 

History: This term we are looking at the civilization of the Ancient Egyptians, and how people in ancient times lived. We are looking forward to our trip to the museum in Swansea.

Art/DT: Our Art work this term is focused around our history topic –the Ancient Egyptians. During the second half term we will be focused on food-tasting, cooking and evaluating.

RE: We will be looking at Hinduism in RE—as we have a large focus on India this term. We will be looking to broaden their understanding.

Music: We are very lucky in Year 4, as Pete Groves will be continuing teach 4GB ukulele., moving on to tin-whistle later on in the term. 4T will be working on composition and appraising different styles of music. 

PSHE: Our focus is ‘going for goals”, and developing relationships and respect between others.

Computing: We will continue with our coding, but also looking at broader aspect of computing such as trustworthy information on the internet, handling data and keeping safe.

If you have any questions you would like to ask us please feel free to see us after school.

Thank you.
