Welcome to the Year 4 Homepage!

Summer Term: First half

We hope you have all had a well-deserved break and are looking forward to another busy and exciting term! 

In English, Art and Guided Reading, we will be continuing with our whole school project around the themes of ‘Home, Belonging, Acceptance and Hope’.  We will be exploring these themes through a number of books including ‘Wisp, A story of Hope’ by Zana Fraillon, ‘Home’ by Carson Ellis, ‘Dreams of Freedom’ in association with Amnesty International and ‘Christophe’s Story’ by Nikki Cornwell.

The children are working hard to create their own ‘Book of Hope’ in Art, inspired by the ‘altered books’ of contemporary artist, Georgina Ferrans.  We will be working in mixed media with a focus on collage, drawing and textiles to combine images and words including the children’s poetry.

Following on from the Ancient Greeks and using our historic city, we will be learning about the Romans in Topic. Can you find out any facts about Roman Britain and Chester during Roman times?

We will be continuing with Fractions and Decimals in Maths and then we will move on to look at Money and Time.  In Science, we will be learning about 'States of Matter' and looking at 'Sikhism' in RE.

Forest School takes place this term and we will be learning how to play guitar in 'Music For Life' lessons (these lessons start on Monday 29th April and children are welcome to bring in their own acoustic guitars if they wish).  This year, we are thrilled as the ‘Music For Life’ concert has returned to Northgate Arena on Monday 15th July 6-7.30pm.  This is a collaborative concert for all the schools who have been involved with Music For Life lessons.  Further details will be sent home nearer the time.

We also have our Beeston residential to look forward to in May!
