Spring Term 2022
Welcome back ! We are looking forward to Spring Term in Class 4M, building on all our hard work from last term. We have already started on our new topics!
In English lessons this term, we will be writing stories modelled on Brer Rabbit Folk Tales as well as non-fiction writing linked to our History topic of The Tudors. We will look at some Wallace and Gromit inventions to write some funny explanations.
In Maths we are continuing with multiplication and division skills, as well as working on fractions and decimals. We will be learning to understand time, including digital time. Finally ,we will cover graph work.
Our RE topics for the whole term are Community, Giving and Receiving and Self-discipline. We will be taking part in the Parish Mass as a class. Hopefully, we might be able to attend whole school masses too.
In other subjects, we will find out about States of matter and about Living things in Science. History is always fun when we find out about King Henry and the Tudors! In DT will will design and make a purse for a Tudor lord. Geography sees us exploring Europe and Austria. Art will include printing work linked to animal art. Our Computing work covers writing for different audiences and some animation work. I'm sure that will be very popular!
Class 4N will be continuing to learn flute for some of this term before handing over to Mr Moat's class.
Your children continue to receive acknowledgement for their hard work and best behaviour, and they love collecting Class Dojo rewards for their hard work and positive behaviour. They are regularly reminded of the Behaviour Charter, Be Safe, Be a Learner, Be Kind and Respectful, and how it will help us to enjoy our time in school. I am looking forward to celebrating their achievements and seeing them progress through Year 4.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to me.

Recommended Reading Books
We have selected these recommended reading lists from Peters Education to ensure that our children have access to a wide range of books. These books are all available in school and form our 'core' texts in our class libraries. These lists are chosen because they:
- link with our curriculum for each year group
- represent different cultures
- introduce children to new authors and expand their knowledge of familiar authors
- ensure progression
- match topics of interests for our children
- tackle current themes
