Welcome to Year 4! Where, with support from Miss Gotschy, Miss Farquharson, Miss Farooq and Mrs Jandu, we strive to achieve our potential in a fun and engaging environment.
This half term, our topic is Dragon Slayers.
We will be looking at the Vikings and Anglo Saxons struggle for Britain, viking raids and invasions and their religious beliefs. We will design and create our own Viking armoury to use on our quest.
In English, we will be reading Beowulf. We will learn how to write in a range of different styles and for different purposes, including writing about our own Viking quest.Our focus in Maths will be using mental and written strategies for calculations. Our Science topic will be Sound. The children will look at how sound travels and how the ear works. They will investigate changing pitch and volume.

A few things worth noting:
- PE days will be Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has his/her full PE kit on these days.
