Year 4

Hello!

 

Welcome to Year 4! 

Our teachers are Mr Tilley and Ms Harrison

Autumn 2 Topic - Vicious Vikings

To finish off the Autumn term in Year 4, we are doing a topic with a history focus - The Vikings! We will be doing all things Scandinavian, as we look at the homeland of the enigmatic Vikings, who sailed from their shores to conquer foreign kingdoms, found new ones and explore and discover new lands. We will see how they impacted on the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England and what their lasting legacy was on Britain. In English, we will also be looking at the book Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman - a tale about a young boy from Norway who is sent on a legendary quest by the gods themselves. We'll use this to write our own myths and legends based on Norse mythology. It will be a very exciting topic! 

 

Astley Burf

One of the big highlights of Year 4 is the Astley Burf residential. The residential takes place on the week beginning 8th June 2020, with children returning to school on 12th June. More information will be released regarding the details of the trip in the coming months, so keep an eye on the website and keep a look out for letters in bags! 

Homework

Homework in Year 4 is set on Fridays and is due in on Wednesdays. New spellings will also be handed out every second Friday, with spelling tests and dictation practice spanning a two-week period before moving on to new spellings. Where possible, copies of homework activities can be found here on this page.
