Welcome to Year 4!
In Year 4, we learn about life during Tudor times. The children learn about the lives of rich and poor Tudors, as well as studying Henry VIII. In Art, we use a range of inspirations from India, to great artists such as Hans Holbein the Younger to create our own work. In English, we explore a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts; the children particularly enjoy reading Iron Man by Ted Hughes and developing their own versions in his style. In Maths, we deepen the children’s understandings of mathematical concepts and aim for all children to be proficient in their times tables by the end of the academic year, in preparation for the Government's Statutory Tests.
Each school year have a famous person allocated to each class. The Year 4 team chose to have humanitarians as their names. Mr Corrigan's class is the Nelson Mandela class and Ms. Lindsay's class is Mother Teresa.
Over the first few weeks of term the children will be taught about their named person and what they are famous for. They will learn about the history around their figure and the changes they made during their lifetime.
A specialist teacher teaches games and PE on Monday and Friday.
Maths homework is given to the children on a Wednesday and is expected to be handed in by Monday.
All children will have access to the library and are rewarded for their reading at home.
