Summer 2022

 Welcome back and I hope you had a lovely Easter holiday! We are looking forward to our final term in Class 4N, 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 exciting stories and persuasive non-fiction linked to a wonderful book called Secrets of A Sun King by Emma Carroll. The story moves between London and Egypt. This will link with our History and Geography work. 

   In Maths we are going to learn about decimals and how they link to fractions. Then we will be doing lots of practical work  with measure, learning about mass, length and volume. We will be learning about shape, position, area and perimeter too. 

   Our 3 RE topics for the whole term are New life, Building bridges and God's people. Our chaplains will continue to help plan and carry out regular collective worships in class.  Hopefully, we might be able to attend whole school masses too.

     In other subjects, we will find out about Habitats and about Teeth and digestion in Science. History is the fascinating subject of Ancient Egyptians.   In DT will will design and make some healthy food for a sportsperson.  Geography sees us finding out about rivers, including the River Nile.  Art will include 3D clay work, again linked to our Egyptian topic. Our Computing work covers Logo and Understanding hardware.

    As flute has finished for our class, we will be learning and appraising Abba songs.


    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 through their final term in Year 4.


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to me. You can also contact me via Class Dojo.

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
