Autumn 2021

Welcome to Year 4! We are so proud of how you have come back into school with huge smiles and great attitudes. You have all settled back in so well.

 

Curriculum

This term our learning will be centred around animals and their habitats. Our Read to Write texts will help us with this and they are the amazing books 'The Whale' by Ethan Murrow/Vita Murrow and 'Leaf' by Sandra Dieckmann.

 

We will be using it to write some fantastic pieces of work such as: Setting Narrative, Newspaper Report, Outsider Narrative and Information Report.

 

Concepts

This term we will be studing the concept of 'Beauty, identity, diversity and passion'. The overaching question is 'What makes us stand out?'.

 

Science 

Autumn 1: 'Living things and their habitats'. We are looking forward to a Zoom session with the RCPCA on the 21st September. 

Autumn 2: 'Animals incl humans'. We are looking forward to having two dental nurses from the Riverside Dentist Practice visit our school on the 3rd November.
