Year 4 Summer Term
Year 4 Summer Newsletter
We welcome you back after the Easter break and look forward to our last term in Year 4.
During the summer term we will be starting our new topic Inspiring Inventions. We will be looking into different aspects of Science and the importance of inventions through history. We will cover all aspects of the curriculum through this topic.
In English we will be working on a text called The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan. It is about an invention that is lost, we will be creating our own inventions based on this story.
In Maths we will be working on various elements of Maths, but particularly multiplication and division.
Our RE topic this term is the Early Christians. Here we will look at the Ascension and Pentecost. Then move onto the work of Peter and how he began the church.
This term we also look forward to our residential to Halton Gill in Littondale. This is a fantastic opportunity for your child to experience and we will do lots of follow up work when we come back to school. Can any monies owed please be paid before Friday 26th May?
