Welcome to Year 4!
In Year 4, our teachers are Mrs Dean and Mrs Starling, our TA's are Miss Williams, Mrs Manser and Mrs Buckle.
Our topic this Summer term is 'London'
We will be exploring fiction books set in London in Literacy and using these books to inspire us with our own story writing. We will be researching the British Monarchy in our History learning and creating some royal portraits within our Art sessions.
By the end of Year 4 we aim for children to be secure with all their times tables. You could use these websites below to practise these.
You could also use mathletics to practise all other areas of maths!
Mrs Starling's class took part in the Dance East Project, here is a link to the film if you would like to watch:

Our Topic in the Spring term was 'Rainforests'.
We enjoyed studying the Earth's geography - using our map skills to find the world's tropic rainforests using lines of latitude and longitude; classifying animals and studying the environments they live in. We used our skills as a artist to study the work of Henri Rousseau in order to produce our own masterpieces.
Our topic in the Autumn term was 'Anglo Saxons'
We have been enjoying creating our own Anglo Saxon personas, thinking about the different trades and activities which need to happen for village life to run smoothly. We are using this to explore the events of the Anglo Saxon era, making helmets and jewellery using all of our artist and DT skills.

Our Trip to West Stow
Anglo Saxon Visitor Day
We had a superb day with our visitor from the past...Lidmann! We took part in lots of different activities to help us really imagine what it was like in Saxon times. We built a long ship to travel across the sea, we looked at how to build roofs for our houses, we took part in Saxon board games and we got to grind some ingredients for food making.
