Welcome to Year 4

 Welcome to Year 4 2023-2024

Summer Term 2024

Year 4 are looking forward to an exciting Summer term. In English we will be continuing to read/study The Butterfly Lion as well as looking at The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Rauf and Anthony Browne's Zoo. In shared reading, we will continue to carousel our three texts – Varjak Paw, The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe and Charlotte's Web. We are continuing to follow the White Rose Curriculum in maths and will be working on decimals, money, time shape and position. In DPC, we are looking at the legacy of the Ancient Greek Civilisation, how the ancient Greeks lived and their society and culture. Our science study is States of Matter and Sound. In DT we will be practising sewing skills, designing and making Greek motifs by cross stitch and making pictures with moving parts for The Butterfly Lion. Our guitar tuition continues on Fridays culminating in an end of year guitar performance.

We are hoping to participate in a local school cricket festival after our Chance to Shine Cricket coaching last term.
