~~~ Year 4 Class of 2020-2021 ~~~
Friday 6th November
We have had a busy first week back in school as usual. This week we continued our Music lessons with Mr Fitton and we are learning how to play a range of percussion instruments - noisy but fun!
In English we have started our new book for this half term 'Odd and the Frost Giants' and in Maths we are starting to explore units of measure. We also embarked on our new History topic and we will be learning all about the vicious Vikings.
Autumn Term 1
We have had a jam packed first half term back in school and the children have made us so proud with how well they settled back in after the challenging summer months.
During our first half term, we have studied Place Value and Addition & Subtraction in Maths. In English, we jumped into the world of Ernest Shackleton (our class explorer) and learnt about his journey to Antarctica. We also explored states of matter in Science, Hinduism and a whole host of other new learning in what was a busy and exciting seven weeks.
The children have thoroughly earned a rest over the Half Term break. Myself and Mrs Bain look forward to seeing you again soon!
