Welcome to Barnardo Class!
Our topic for this term is entitled -
Through the Wardrobe
In our English lessons we will travel to Narnia by reading the classic C.S Lewis text: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe . Our writing will also be inspired by this magical tale along with other quality texts taken from our Monty Reads List for year 4.
In Maths we will be developing our understanding of place value, learning how to round numbers and developing our fluency when reciting times tables. Our main focus for quick recall will be the 6 and 12 times tables.
This term our main topic focus will be Geography. We will be learning about what it means to be a 'Global Citizen' and finding out how we can help improve the world in which we live in. We will also be studying our local area.
During our first few weeks in year 4, we will also be establishing our school and class expectations and reviewing our School Ambassadors alongside updating our understanding of E-safety and how we can continue to remain safe when going online.
Our Art will focus on creating patterns using a range of techniques and in D&T we will be learning to use different stitches when sewing by hand.
P.E will be every Tuesday and Friday this term.
