Welcome to year 4!
Children have had a busy spring term and have worked very hard. Moving forward, we have a very exciting Summer term planned for the children. Our topic is South America so there will be a lot of focus on geography but we will also be exploring art and rainforests from that region in detail as well. We will be enjoying learning about time, money, statistics and geometry in maths, writing stories about South American folk lore based in rain forest in English. We will also be learning about british values, enjoying the prayer area outside, cooking, music, science and of course celebrating all things sport on our sports day.
Children will be given homework based on the week's learning every Thursday which has to be handed in on Tuesday. In addition to this, children can access the following websites to enhance and further support their learning at home:
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.

Please listen to your child read everyday at home and sign their diaries.
The children will be learning about South America. Each week they will learn about a new country in South America, research the population, local customs, food, sports (Football for Brazil) famous people and places etc. This is a very exciting opportunity for the children to deepen their understanding about the world out there and broaden their horizons, helping them to become global citizens. They will explore the art from that part of the world, thry their hands on it and make wonderful pieces of their own every week in the second half of this term. We will also be investigating ICT in further detail, making power point presenations of their findings, put animations and sound effects etc.
