Welcome to Year 4!

We have an exciting term ahead of us as we sail the seas with the Vikings. We will be learning about where the Vikings came from and how they lived in day-to-day life. We will be particularly focusing on how the Vikings came to Britain.

In maths we will be looking at place value and how we form numbers. We will be looking at a range of ways in which we form 3 and 4 digit numbers in particular, and their value. Also we will be starting to think about our times tables and areas where we need to improve as individuals.

In English we will be discovering exciting myths and legends and how the Viking’s used myths as a form of entertainment. The main focus will be on the text Beowulf.

During our Science lessons we will be looking at the human body, with a special focus on teeth. We will learn about all of the vital organs that are in our bodies and the jobs that they carry out to keep us fit and healthy. I have a few exciting experiments up my sleeve which will hopefully enable us to have a greater understanding of the human digestive system and how sugar can damage our teeth.

On a more creative note, Art will be based around observational drawings and using different medians to represent objects. In music we are looking at rhythm and playing games to help us learn and practice our skills.

I am looking forward to working alongside all of you and can’t wait to see what we get up to.
