Welcome to year 4!

This term we started by thinking about how our brains work in the Brainwave topic. We all thought about what was inside our brains.  We realised that with all of these things going on inside our heads it was not surprising we sometimes get confused or cannot concentrate.  It was interesting learning all about all of the different parts of the brain!


For our topic Active Planet we will be looking at the text Tsunami by Kimiko Kajikawa.  It is based on true life events and the books has beautiful illustrations.   We shall also look at the destruction of Pompeii using a digitally generated reconstruction of events on that day, which helps to set the scene and capture the emotion.


In Maths we are focussing on Place Value and looking at number patterns and sequences. We are also spending time thinking about our times tables so that we become really confident in our recall! 


In Science we are looking at The Human Body! We are concentrating on teeth and digestion. We have some very interesting investigations planned!

A homework menu has now been uploaded onto ClassDojo. A piece of homework is to be uploaded every week. Class teachers will mark your child's homework electronically and feedback will be given. 

Reading Records are temporarily to be kept in school. Comments from Guided Reading and home reading should be added to your child's portfolio on ClassDojo. All home reads should be numbered so that we can keep track and the correct awards can be given!
