This term our topic was all about ‘Our Community’. To begin, we discussed the apostles and how they were the first Christian community. We learnt about how we are all followers of Jesus, like the apostles and we discussed the qualities we might have in common with them. After this, we explored our own local parish community ‘Our Lady of the Visitation’. We wrote prayers to Mary asking for her help and protection in or parish.
This term we started our new class book ‘The Viking at school’ by Jeremy Strong. We are enjoying reading, discussing and making predictions about what we think is going to happen next. At the start of the term we discovered our classroom destroyed by Sigurd the Viking. We have come to realise what a clumsy barbarian he is.
This half term we began learning multiplication and division. We learnt how to use the written method to solve calculations. More recently, we thoroughly enjoyed geometry this term, where we got the chance to plot co-ordinates, translate shapes and look at lines of symmetry.
In topic we have continued our Viking theme. This has been great fun as we have had the opportunity to create Viking long ships, and compare Anglo-Saxon warriors to the Vikings. We found out some interesting facts through research. Were the Vikings vicious? Ask any member of year 4 Viking expert team to find out!
Hello and welcome to Year 4! We hope you all had a lovely Summer.
We are very excited to begin our new term and look forward to all the wonderful learning that we will be doing. We are lucky to begin swimming lessons this year and learn how to play the recorder. Later on in the term we will have the opportunity to go to Legoland and learn all about programming robots and we can't wait!
