Welcome back to the summer term! I hope you enjoyed your holidays and that you are ready to get back into learning on the run-up to Year 5!
We will begin the term learning about comic strips and natural forms in art. In History, we will continue to study the Anglo Saxon and Viking eras, learning about their laws and justice system and how they impacted our lives today. We will end the term with creating clay bowls and weaving in DT and in Geography will continue to study Asia, focusing on the impact of humans on the environment.
In English, we will be writing persuasive texts to engage the reader as well as developing techniques through story writing. Children are still expected to complete reading and journals at home. We would like to encourage parents, as much as possible, to read with their children and support them when completing journals. This will help them make the highest possible progress in reading.
In maths, the children will continue to build upon the skills taught them so far. This will include the four rules of subtraction, addition, multiplication and division, both mentally and in problem solving. In Science this term, the children will study living things and their habitats, classifying animals and placing them on food chains.

If you have are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
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.
