Welcome to year 4!
We have a very exciting Autumn term planned for children where they will be going to York to explore the Viking Center and The Dig, learn about new and surprising ways to do maths, writing newspaper reports on the Vikings and exploring, making up our own adventure stories, learning about the story of creation among many other things. They will also be learning about the Indian festival of lights, cooking, archery, gymnastics, music and of course Christmas. So all in all, it's going to be a thoroughly enjoyable, fast paced and thrilling learning journey for Year 4.
Children are encouraged to read books at school. When they have finished reading them, they need to go on the following link and complete their quiz.
The children will be learning about The Vikings for their Topic this term. They will learn about the countries where the Vikings came from, why did they leave their shores, identify on the map which countries they invaded, how they sailed across the ocean, their long ships and their life style including their food, farms, animals and clothes.
