Welcome to 4 Saturn!
Autumn Term 2019
Welcome to a brand new term and a brand new Year 4! We are going to have a jolly good time learning a whole range of things this term - I hope you are all looking forward to it!
This term, our topic will be Ancient Egypt. We will be researching and finding out a lot of information about how the Ancient Egyptians lived, who they worshipped, how they buried their dead as well as how ‘Tut’ was discovered.
In English, we will be looking at a variety of texts related to our topic, Ancient Egypt. Our first text is all about the murder of King Tut, resulting in our own newspaper reports with our own views and possible evidence! We will also be looking at some poetry to link with Michael Rosen’s visit on the 3rd October.
In maths, we will start with place value knowledge as well as developing our mental fluency and flexible thinking to calculate using the four operations.
Our Science this term will be States of Matter, looking at solids, liquids and gases. We will then be moving on to learn about sounds and how we hear.
Please do look below under the Meet The Teacher section for all of our other curriculum learning for the year.
Here's to an amazing 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 me directly - my email address 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.
