 Year 4 Class Update - Spring 2


It’s been another exciting and busy half term in Gingko class!

In English, we’ve immersed ourselves in Narnia through our class story: ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’. The children dazzled us with their costumes and getting into character on our Wow Day! We’ve written poems about eating enchanted Turkish Delight, retold the story and are writing our own portal stories into an imaginary world.

In Maths, we’ve been learning how to calculate duration of time and how to count in tenths and hundredths and add and subtract decimals. We’ve continued to build speedy recall of our times tables facts.

We’ve been investigating changes in natural habitats in Science and have learned about abstraction, pattern recognition and decomposition in Computing. In RE, we’ve considered the Christian concept of forgiveness. In PSHE, we’ve thought about how to make healthy physical and mental choices and stand up to peer pressure. In PE, we’ve enjoyed orienteering and cricket. We’ve experimented with perspective in Art, culminating in an ink and watercolour painting of an urban landscape. In DT, we’ve designed pavilions, using a frame structure and cladding.

After the break, we’ll round off our ‘Urban Pioneers’ Geography theme with a day of fieldwork in Guildford. Our new learning theme will be ‘Ancient Rome’: we’ll explore the History of this civilization and learn how to represent Roman columns using charcoal and chalk in Art. We’ll design algorithms in Computing and build slingshot cars in DT. In Maths, we’ll be learning more about money and measures. Our English lessons will be based on ‘Weslandia’ by Paul Fleischman, leading to the creation of adverts for our own utopian civilizations. We’re looking forward to getting onto the field to play rounders in PE and swimming in the sunshine!

Have a wonderful Easter holiday!
