ST PAUL'SOur topic this half term is:

What if you had to choose Athens or Sparta? This is a history-based topic focusing on all things Ancient Greece! We will work through the chronology of this time period, through the dark ages and into the classical period, learning about the way of life for different people within the society and how the country dealt with conflict. Also included in this topic is the study of Ancient Greece's great thinkers, such as Hippocrates and Pythagoras - we will consider how even now, they have an influence on the way we live.
Thank you first of all for your support in ensuring your children read at home. There has been some impressive progress amongst the children with their fluency and overall enjoyment of reading! We hope this continues throughout the year. Our class novel is Who Let The Gods Out by Maz Evans, a story of a boy whose problems at home are worsened when he gets involved with Virgo, a member of the Zodiac council. We will be reading this book for pleasure, as well as using it to develop our vocabulary, retrieval and inference skills. We will also base some of our writing around it too!
Whilst we continue to build on our speedy recall of times table facts, we will also be exploring measurement, multiplication and division. We will learn how to convert measurements between different units of measure and will also use this to work out the perimeter of various shapes.

On w/b 08.11.21, we will also be celebrating National Maths Week, by competing in a series of challenges including an escape room and a Maths relay!
As part of our topic, 'Can we control electricity?', we will explore electricity through a series of practical investigations using different electrical components, manipulating batteries, bulbs, buzzers and wires into circuits. We will set up fair tests, make predictions, gather, record and report data and use this to draw conclusions and answer questions. Also important within this topic is for us to consider the hazards that we face when using electricity and learn how we can make sure that we stay safe.
Within Religious Education, we will be considering whether it is better to show faith through art and architecture or charity and genorosity. Part of this will include a study on Islam, including the study of Mosques and Islamic art. We will discuss how these are similar and different to cathedrals and Christian art, as well as learning about the religious charities that support less fortunate people than us.

YEAR 4Topic Overviews

WELLBEINGChildren's Mental Health Week

Now more than ever we need to be looking after our mental health! 1st -7th February was Children's Mental Health Week. We got involved to mark the occasion and to raise money for the charity Place2Be who focus on improving children's mental health.

The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week was Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

Check out how we have expressed ourselves this week!
