Year 4

Welcome to 4 Saturn!


Spring Term 2017


Welcome to the Spring Term!


During the first half of this term our topic will be How Humans Work. This topic is science-based and we will be investigating aspects of first aid, bones structures, the eyes, ears and teeth as well as the digestive system. There will be some practical elements to this topic as we look at fitness and what it means to keep healthy.

After half term, our topic will be Bright Sparks which will involve looking at electricity and circuits.


In English, we will be starting the term with some creative writing linked to our grammar knowledge. We will then be looking at story settings from well-known fiction texts. After half term we will then be looking at script writing in preparation for our trip to Warner Bros. Studio Tour where we will discover how the film industry creates what we see on the screen from a written script.


In Maths, we will be continuing with multiplication and division and then fractions and decimals.


In RE we will be looking at the Sikh tradition as well as learning more about Easter towards the end of the term.


This term is an action packed term and I'm looking forward to all the learning that the children will be doing.


If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to catch me briefly after school, or make an appointment via the office.


Please do keep checking back for updates, and follow us on Twitter if you aren't yet doing so - this will give you an excellent insight to all of the learning that Saturn and the rest of the school get up to.


Kind Regards,


Mr White.
