Year 4 Spring Term
We welcome you back after the Christmas holidays and wish you a happy new year.
During spring term we will be looking into the topic of Through the Keyhole. We will be looking into the life of Henry VIII and his wives. We will be taking a trip to Fountains Abbey to look into what effect Henry VIII had on it during his reign. We will be doing some drama in the second part of Spring term on the Tudors. We will also incorporate some Science through this topic with regards to teeth and digestion.
In English we will be looking at stories linked to the Tudors. We will be looking closely at The Thief, The Fool and the Big Fat King by Terry Deary. We will also be looking into non-fiction texts around this topic.
In Maths we will be looking at multiplication and division. Also looking at decimals, including money. We will be having a big push on timestables this term. All pupils are expected to know all their times tables up to 12. So please try help your children to learn these at home.
Our RE topic this term is Jesus the Teacher. Here we will look into the life of Jesus and how he went about his mission of teaching the word of God.
