Year 4

 Welcome to the year 4 page.

This term we will be learning about different aspects of World War 2, particularly The Home Front, Evacuees and Rationing.  Our Geography unit will look at Our European Neighbours. In Science, we will learn about ourselves including Teeth, Eating and Digestion and Sound and the Ear.  In Art and Design we will continue the focus on self by studying Portrait artists and creating our own Portraits. As Christmas approaches, we will be practising our sewing skills and creating our own Christmas decorations.  Music will be taught by a specialist teacher and this term will be African drumming.

In Literacy lessons, we will be using the Michael Morpurgo book ‘Friend or Foe’ as a stimulus for writing across different fiction and non-fiction genres.

Maths has a large focus on Place Value and Calculation but also looks at aspects of Measurement later in the year.
