Welcome to Eagles class in year 4, taught by Mrs Prevett, supported by Mrs Stoodley, Mrs Koike, Miss Warren and Mr Jackson. We have got off to a flying start this year by focusing on always achieving our absolute best. Our classroom is a caring and polite environment where we support each other with our learning.
Our English lessons have started off with a narrative unit based on the graphic novel ‘A Roman Rescue’, which also linked to our history unit. We are moving on to look at non-chronological reports about the Romans, and we will write a recount after our planned visit to Dorset Museum on the 8th November.
Our Science topic this half term is ‘Animals including Humans.’ We have begun by identifying the function of the digestive system, and looking at tooth care. In R.E. we will be thinking about our values, in school and out of school, before moving on to look closely at Christianity. In Computing, the children will take part in E-Safety lessons at the start of the term, and then move to use the program ‘Scratch.’
We are fortunate in Year 4 to have P.E. taught by a qualified coach, and we have a drama and music specialist who will be teaching one lesson a week in the hall. Please note that it will be Year 4’s turn to swim weekly after the October half term. Our French lessons will be building on the key words we learnt in Year 3.
If you have any questions about the Year 4 curriculum, please come and speak to us.
We look forward to working with you to support your child’s learning.
