Year 4 Summer Term

Summer Term.

This term in Year 4 we will have an exciting time exploring and learning. We take on many roles. We will be Scientists investigating states of matter and learning how electricity works.  In Geography, we will be exploring mountains and the water cycle. As artists, we will use clay to create beautiful, decorative pots. As historians, we will travel through time to explore the daily life of the Invaders and settlers. As archaeologists, we will develop our historical skills and look how artefacts teach us about our past. In Design and Technology, inspired by famous architects we will be using saws safely to build a stable skyscraper. Again this term, motivated by incredible explorers, we will develop our team work and our LEAD values through Commando Joe challenges inspired by Junko Tabei.

Within our maths learning, we like to tackle challenges and solve problems – we love presenting our learning in different ways and always remember to SLAM (Speak Like A Mathematician). We will continue to learn our times tables daily to prepare for the end of year multiplication check.  In literacy, we just LOVE to read and we enjoy working in response to an exciting book. Reading is at the heart of our learning and we cannot wait to take you on an adventure into new worlds and develop our love of reading.  This term we will be reading, ‘The boy at the back of the class’ and ‘Everest’.  If you have a sense of adventure and want to be inspired to follow your dreams then these books will be a joy to read.

Brace yourselves for a term filled with curiosity, discovery, and creativity. Let’s embark on this incredible learning journey together!

We will be inspired by a real life explorer Junko Tabei to develop our team work, our LEAD values through Commando Joe challenges!
