Happy New Year! Welcome back to the Spring term of Year 4 and to 2019! We trust you had a lovely holiday and look forward to a term full of learning and progress.
We will start the Spring term learning all about ‘The Vikings’ during History and ‘Circuits’ during Design and Technology, followed by our Geography topic of ‘Asia’. Science objectives concentrate on States of Matter. Pupils will continue to learn French in their Modern Foreign Language lessons, whilst RE focuses on Sikhism and religious buildings.
In English, we will continue to build on our skills through a variety of texts and genres, starting with Treasure Island. In mathematics, we will be applying our times table skills to written multiplication and division, as well as developing our understanding of fractions and decimals. Times tables will continue to be heavily focused on, with daily times table tests and counting.

PE this term will be on Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school.

Class four had an exciting history lesson, finding out about the role of an archaeologist. We looked at a variety of artefacts and discussed what they might tell us about the past.
In Science club this week, we have been looking at chemical reactions. We combined vinegar and baking powder to create a foamy fountain!
Class 4 really enjoyed their Asia Day! We dressed up in traditional clothing, painted Chinese fans and made some delicious chapatis with the help of our parents!
Class 4 had a fantastic time joining in with Armistice Day activities. We created some super newspaper articles about the end of the war and made poppy sun-catchers.
In R.E. this week, Class 4 have been learning about the Torah. We made our own Torah scrolls and demonstrated the ways that it is shown respect.
This week, Class 4 have been text detectives! We have been spotting the features of newspaper articles and explaining their purpose.

Some members of Class 4 took part in a Bikeability workshop. They received their level 1 certificates, which meant they were able to do things like control a bike with one hand, start and stop with control and ride alongside other cyclists and pedestrians.
Year 4 had an exciting visit from Severn Trent to learn about water use and sewage treatment. We found out how water travels around the water cycle and, in groups, we measured out the water use of different families to identify water savers and water wasters.
