Miss Blatherwick and Mrs Duryea will be teaching in Year 4 this year.
This half-term we will be learning all about the legacy of the Vikings, including the reasons for them coming to Britain.
We will be deepening our knowledge of how they lived, how they fought, what they ate and even the many different gods they worshipped (there were 27!)
In Mathematics we will be understanding the value of different digits in 4-digit numbers and beginning to add and subtract different 4 digit totals.
In Science we will be learning about animals and their habitats, including the differences between different groups of animals and how they are classified.
For the final half term of Year 4, we will be learning all about the history of Ancient Egypt. We will be discovering how people lived, the life of the Pharaohs, the religious beliefs including those of the different gods, and discovering Egyptian beliefs about life after death.
During this half term, Class 4 will be learning about the River Nile and the importance and impact of this on Ancient Egyptian society! We will learn how the River Nile was key in the location and how it enabled a civilisation to be built in the desert, and how this led to one of the greatest historical societies in the world.
In year 4, this half term's learning will centre around the changes in society in the Middle Ages. This includes the crusades, the development of religion, the jobs available, famous figures from the time and even the Black Death and how this changed the country!
