Year 4

Welcome to 4 Saturn!


Autumn Term 2017


Welcome to the Autumn Term and I hope you and your child are looking forward to a great year of learning!


This term our topic will be Temples, Tombs and Treasures. This topic will cover all of our foundation subject learning. We will start by looking at the Ancient Egyptians - how they lived, what their significance is in history, their settlements and people, the river Nile and why it was important to the people as well as making our own papyrus paper and sarcophagi. We will also be conducting an enquiry into Howard Carter and the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb.

After visiting the Ancient Egyptians we will touch upon life in Ancient Sumer and Mesopotamia. 


In English, we will be studying quest Myths through effective characterisation using dialogue and setting descriptions. We will also be looking at reports, poetry and grammatical features.


In Maths, we will be looking at the four operations and place value - a schedule will be uploaded shortly.


We will be investigating states of matter in science, starting by defining the three states and comparing the particle arrangements in each. We will then be conducting some experiments and recording results in different ways.


I am really looking forward to great year with the class, and I hope you and your child are too!


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.
