Year 4

Welcome to 4 Saturn!


Spring Term 2019


Happy New Year!

We hope you have all had a super festive break and are now re-energised and ready for more great learning...


Our topic this is term is 'Island Life' which is focuses on Geographical locations. There are a lot of islands in the world and we will be taking a tour of some of them to discuss and explore what life is like living on an island, how islands were formed (including volcanoes) as well as linking some music to the topic.


In English we are going to be continuing with the Talk4Writing approach and our theme of The Big Bad Wolf. We will be researching all about wolves, creating a class book about wolves and providing advice about how avoid being EATEN!


In Maths we will be continuing the Maths Essentials programme looking at problem solving, multiplying and measuring.


In Science we will be starting off the term looking at what electricity is, where we can find it, how it is used and how it impacts the planet. We will be investigating different ways to conduct and insulate electricity. After half term we will then be moving on to study our teeth and digestive system. Lots of practical science this term!


Here's to another great term filled with a wide range of learning experiences and opportunities for all.


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,


The Year 4 Teaching Team
