Welcome to the Year 4 Homepage!

Spring Term: Second half

After watching the brilliant and thought provoking play, ‘Adrift’ by Action Transport Theatre last term, we will be working on a 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 and ‘Dreams of Freedom’ in association with Amnesty International.

During the first week back, Year 4 will have the opportunity to work with a local poet called Curtis Watt and inspired by the ‘altered books’ of contemporary artist, Georgina Ferrans, the children will be creating their own ‘Book of Hope’ in Art.  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.

In History, we will be learning more about the Ancient Greeks and in Geography, we will research the different countries dominated by Greece.  After a very enjoyable trip to Techniquest, there will be lots of practical experiments linking to ‘Sound’ and ‘States of Matter’ and our new focus in Maths is Fractions and Decimals.

Steve Reddy will be teaching Games sessions on Tuesday afternoons and Ron Bell will be teaching Gymnastics on Friday mornings.  We will also be continuing with our brass lessons on Monday mornings with a small concert at the end of the term.

Please see the Curriculum Overview tab above and the medium term plans below if you would like any more information.
