Year 4

Welcome to 4 Saturn!


Summer Term 2019


The Final Countdown...!

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


Our topic this is term is 'Living Together' which focuses on various aspects of Geography in the first half term and History in the second. During the first half term we will be looking at the physical and human geographical features of the local area, sketching maps and creating keys. After May half term, in History, we will be looking at The Vikings and whether or not history has treated them fairly - by investigating how opinion has changed and why through examining resources. This History topic will be launched by a visit from a Viking on June 6th!


In English we are going to be continuing with the Talk4Writing approach looking at setting descriptions and stories - this will culminate in a visit to Warner Bros. Studio Tour in June.


In Maths we will be continuing the Maths Essentials programme looking at problem solving, fractions and revisiting the four operations.


In Science we will be starting off the term conducting a range of experiments linked to the Science Crest Award including: Toast, Discuses, Playground Games and Wind!


In RE we will be looking at the 5 pillars of Islam where we will study Muslim beliefs about God, prayers and the Qu’ran.


Oh, and don’t forget our residential trip to Norfolk this term too!


Here's to an amazing final 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 also note, as explained in the newsletter at the end of last term, that for anything confidential you are able to email either myself or Mrs Jones directly - our emails can be found in the ‘Who’s Who’ section of the website.


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
