The Year 4 team this year includes Mrs Beeching, Miss Templeton, Ms Hogan, Ms Franklin and Mrs Slingsby.
At the beginning of the Summer Term, there were golden envelopes with clues in around the school. In a whole school assembly, we decoded the clues, with music and photographs of our teachers and school staff in different locations, we figured out that our Topic this half-term is, ‘What does it mean to be a Londoner?’ We are finishing the half-term with a London Tea Party!
We are going to be visiting lots of different places in London – the Swaminarayan Temple; Hampton Court Palace; and The Museum of London!
We will also be pizza-making when we take a trip to a professional kitchen!
In History, we will be studying London over time and the influence of the changing power of Monarchs.
In Computing, we will be using search technologies effectively to find information for a travel guide.
We are studying Hinduism in RE.
In Reading and Writing we have been inspired by Roald Dahl’s ‘The BFG’ and ‘Royal Rabbits of London’. We will also be reading non-fiction texts about monarchs and inventors.
As well as creative writing, we will be improving our non-fiction writing by writing a travel guide for London, information texts on monarchs and inventors
In Maths, we will be focusing on improving our use of decimals, time and money – all really useful life-skills, please practise as much as you can outside school!
