Year 4

In Year 4 our new topic for the whole Summer Term is The Victorians. We will start by focusing our learning on some of the changes that took place during the Victorian era, such as population growth, inventions and technological advances. In the second half of the Summer Term, our learning will be focused around the classic Charles Dickens book, Oliver Twist.

As mathematicians, we will be investigating 2D and 3D shapes, solving problems linked to geometry and classifying angles. As always, we will be developing our arithmetic skills and practising our times tables!

As writers, we will be delving into the world of limericks as well as writing and editing non-chronological reports and instructions. We will begin reading Oliver Twist towards the end of the first half term.

As scientists, we will be using our trip to the Science Museum to enhance our learning on electrical circuits and switches.

As athletes, we will be working in teams to hone our orienteering skills. We will learn new balances and jumps in gymnastics.

As philosophers, we will be discussing healthy and unhealthy friendships and thinking about the impact we can have on creating a peaceful community.
