Summer Term 2022
Welcome back ! I hope you have all had a fabulous break! We are looking forward to Summer Term in Class 4M, building on all our hard work and effort from last term.
In English lessons this term, we will be writing stories modelled on The Secrets of the Sun King as well as some persuasion and and a sprinkling of poetry, based on The Mousehole Cat.
In Maths, we begin looking at measures including length and mass before studying shapes in Geometry. We then end the year by learning about area and perimeter.
Our RE topics for the whole term are New Life, Building Bridges and God's people.
In other subjects, we will find out about Habitats in Science. History is always fun when we find out about The Egyptians and their 'ways' - especially mummification! In DT we will be looking at food and healthy eating. Geography sees us rivers and settlements, with a particular focus on the Nile. Art will include 3D clay sculptures based on our Ancient Egypt study. Our Computing work covers animation and some work on hardware.
Class 4M will be continuing to learn flute until the end of the term with a video shoot in the final week, which is sure to be a real hit!
PE kits will be a priority moving forwards across the school so it is important that children have the correct kit in school. PE kit consists of a white t-shirt (with or without school logo), blue sports shorts and pumps for indoors/trainers for outdoors. In the cold weather, children are welcomed to wear their blue school jumper over their white t-shirt and a plain pair of blue tracksuit bottoms/joggers.
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. We have had a fabulous two terms in Year 4 and I look forward to a successful final term.
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
