Summer Term Summary
What a great summer term in Year 4! We are so proud of the children in Tiger Class, who have come so far! We have made great memories, had fun and gained lots of new knowledge.
We began the term by creating our stories with a theme based on 'The Mousehole Cat' and we then created poems based on our experiences in Tiger Class. In maths, we have been working on decimals and measure. All the children have shown amazing resilience and perseverance, a huge well done!
Our earthquake topic has been fabulous. We have been learning about tectonic plates, the richter scale and recent earthquakes around the world.
In science, we have been learning about states of matter. We explored solids, liquid and gases and we worked hard to observe and fair test.
Take a look at the photographs below for a glimpse into what we have been doing in Tiger Class. Many thanks for the continued support. We hope that all of our families have a wonderful summer break.
Welcome to Tiger Class
Welcome back to Woodlea, we are so impressed with how well the children have settled in to Tiger Class. Well done to all the children for their effort in our endangered animal fundraiser and many thanks to all the parents/carers who donated. We can already tell this is going to be an amazing year. Miss Martin is the class teacher for this year, supported by Miss Wilson and Mrs Grove.
This term in English, we will be exploring the story of the Loch Ness Monster. First, we will be working towards writing our own adventure narrative. Then, we will write a magazine article reporting information about the Loch Ness Monster.
For Maths, we will be following the Maths No Problem scheme of work and we will begin the year by looking at counting and place value. Mental maths will also take place daily.
Our wider curriculum topic for the Autumn term will focus on Ancient Greece. During our Geography and History lessons, we will be investigating what life was like in Ancient Greece and how Greek life and achievements have influenced the western world.
