We have many exciting things going on in year 4.

We will be discovering the wonders of Ancient Egypt, learning about The Tudors and the life of Henry V111 and finding out about the Vikings!!

In science we will be investing electricity, sound and solids, liquids and gases as well as learning about all living things.

We are also given the chance to learn to play the keyboards and give a performance, as well as having weekly singing sessions.

We will be transported to many amazing imaginary worlds through the wonderful books we will be reading and writing about, including the magical world of the circus.

Maths is great too and we will be learning new problem solving skills. By the end of year 4 we will know all of our times tables ready for the new test, so will be busy learning all of those in school and at home.

Year 4 take the lead in our annual Christmas Carol concert which gets us ready for the festive season.

Music – Home Learning Resources for Parents

Music has an extraordinary power to bring us together, it can lift us when we feel low, energise us when we feel tired and is something we all have in common. So, to help with the rhythms and routines of your new daily life, ‘Out of the Ark’ have released seven songs, one for each day, all with challenges and activities related to each song. They will continue to add new songs and resources over the next few weeks and can be found by following the link below:

DESIGN TECHNOLOGY – HOME LEARNING IDEAS

Design and technology (DT) prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. Creative thinking encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life. The subject encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. Through the study of design and technology they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and its impacts. Design and technology helps all children to become discriminating and informed consumers and potential innovators. 

Follow the link below for some fantastic, age appropriate DT ideas to try at home with your child.
