Year Four

Welcome to year 4. We have two year 4 classes, one called Wilson and the other called Walliams. Miss White is the teacher in Wilson and  Mrs Gulzar is the teacher in Walliams. The Teaching Assistants in Y4 are Mrs Rushworth and Mrs Sample.

We know that it is important to keep developing our reading skills as we work to understand complex texts. To help us do this we read at home each day and ask an appropriate adult to sign our reading journal to confirm we have done this.

We also work hard the learn key facts in maths using our Maths Passports so don’t forget to ask us what our latest target is!

Our PE lessons are on Friday.  You will need to come to school wearing your PE kit and you will be able to stay in this all day. PE will take place outside so make sure you have black warm jogging bottoms. Please make sure you do not wear any branded clothing or football kits.

We also have a guitar lessons available after school each Wednesday until 3:30pm, where a specialist teacher comes to school to help us learn how to play.

We have put some information together below so you can find out more about what we learn in year 4:

What was life like for the ancient Egyptians?

This half term in topic we will be exploring ‘What was life like for the ancient Egyptians?’ and looking into how the Egyptians lived. We will learn about the lives of different people in Ancient Egypt, including the famous pharaoh Tutunkhamun. In year 4, we will also understand the achievements of the earliest civilisations and how they have impacted on our lives today.

We will use key historical skills such as analysing sources, to help us to understand what life was like in ancient Egypt. We will use our comparing and contrasting skills to understand the similarities and differences between ancient Egyptian life and how we live today today. Eventually, we will be searching for answers, to draw to a conclusion and discover ‘What brought down an empire that had ruled for 30 centuries?’

We have provided a link below to an exciting experience that can be had from your home.
