Year 4

Oh my gosh, Year 4, it's the summer term already and there is so much to look forward to. I hope you had an amazing Easter break and I can't wait to hear what you've all been up to, and how much chocolate you've eaten! Don't forget that our themed curriculum has now moved on to our Art and Music based CREATE term.


In our Art lessons we will be learning all about drawing, painting and sculpture and attempting to answer our enquiry question: "Is Art real life?" We will be learning a lot about Art in our English lessons too, through the wonderful book 'The Bluest of Blues' by Fiona Robinson as well as through our Art lessons (we will also be covering playscripts and riddles). We will be learning about different art mediums as well as having the chance to draw and paint on location in Hertford.


In Science, our first half term will be about electricity with a specific focus on circuits and conductors. The second half term will see us looking closely at sustainability. We will learn about the three 'Rs'; reduce, reuse and recycle; how to reduce our carbon footprint and to make a sustainable future for us all


Maths will be taking place on a daily basis to focus on the children's core skills which can be applied across the curriculum. I will be using both Herts Essentials and White Rose to plan our lessons and give the children a firm grasp of the Year 4 maths curriculum through discrete skills and fun activities.


Our Computing lessons in this term will be focused on photo editing and repetition in games. PSHE will continue to focus on citizenship and economic wellbeing. These lessons will alternate with RE where we will be comparing and contrasting the beliefs and practices of Christianity and Hinduism. We will have two hours of PE each week with one hour taught by Matt and the other will be our fun swimming lessons at Hartham on Thursday afternoon.
