Spring Term 2024

History - Anglo-Saxons.  As always, the children are full of enthusiasm for our History topic.  So far we have learnt about where they came from and migration, how they lived in settlements and key historical figures such as Alfred the Great.  Last week, the children also enjoyed making some Anglo-Saxon shields and weaving.

English - 'Frindleswylde' - a story about a cold-hearted imp has been our text for writing.  Keep watch for the sequel 'Frindleswylde Returns' which we are writing soon.

Art - we have been exploring colour, including primary and secondary colours and tone.  This week we looked at warm and cold colours and how colour can show emotion.

RE - Swallows have explored how Christians use artwork to help them to understand the meaning behind the Trinity.  The children had a relaxing lesson painting their own interpretations and were really pleased with the outcomes.

Science - We have been looking at States of Matter and investigating solids, liquids and gases.

Times Tables

 

By the end of Year 4, our children are expected to recall all times table facts up to 12 x 12.

Each week, we focus on one or two times table facts to learn. These are at the top of the weekly math home learning so they can be learnt at home too.

Below are some useful websites to help learn times table facts in fun ways.
