We kicked off our Year 4 learning journey with a focus on ‘The Great Outdoors’.
In our English lessons, we researched famous explorers before writing biographies about their lives, including details of their amazing achievements. We also wrote our own adventure stories, which was a great opportunity to unleash our creativity and practise key grammar skills.
Our Maths’ focus has been on place value and getting to grips with 4-digit numbers. We’ve also been working hard on our times tables, ready for the official assessment next year.
We had great fun experimenting in our Science lessons as we learned about the properties of solids, liquids and gases. We even made our own ice cream!
Meanwhile, our Geography lessons took us overseas to North America, where we explored the climate; countries including Alaska and the United States of America; and key human and physical features of this wonderful continent.
In Art, we studied two illustrators: Laura Carlin and Shaun Tan, before working through a sequence of lessons that built our own illustration skills, culminating in us illustrating ‘The Jabberwocky’ by Lewis Carroll using charcoal.
