Year 4

Welcome to 4 Saturn!


Autumn Term 2018


Welcome to 4S and a brand new year! 

I do hope you have all had a fantastic summer holiday and are ready for the year ahead...


Our topic this is term is 'Temples, Tombs and Treasures' which is all about Ancient Egypt, Ancient Sumer and Mesopotamia. We are going to be looking at Gods/Goddesses, the Afterlife, Howard Carter, Sarcophaguses, the River Nile along with many other Ancient relics! Be prepared to become an archaeologist as well as chief designer of Pharaoh's Tomb, sarcophagus and mummy-wrap.


In English we are going to be starting with some poetry and performing our own poems. We will then be implementing the Talk4Writing approach as a whole school whereby English will become even more active and creative.


In Maths we will be following the Maths Essentials programme and will cover everything from place value to the four operations to time...and we may even throw in some algebra to get you thinking! 


Science relates loosely to our topic as we will be investigating different states of matter and how we can change materials from solids to liquids and vice versa. We will also be identifying aspects of the water cycle and seeing the impact humans have on this.


This term will be fantastic 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,


The Year 4 Teaching Team
